Brief Description

To prevent early marriages, on 21 July 2010, the Family Code was amended, increasing the marriageable age from 17 to 18. The increase aims to ensure that girls exercise their right to education and prepare for independent life, as well as to implement certain provisions of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
