Child Marriage in Yemen

Let's Meet Tahani (in pink), who married her husband Majed when she was 6 and he was 25, poses for this portrait with former classmate G

hada, also a child bride, outside their mountain home in Hajjah, Yemen.

Nearly half of all women in Yemen were married as children. Child marriage is outlawed in many countries and international agreements forbid the practice yet this tradition still spans continents, language and religion.

what is your opinion on this practice which is also found in rural India?
