journal article talks about families that are poor and living in the rural
areas are more likely to get their children married before the age of 18. The
child husbands are more likely to have no to very little education and the
child wives are unqualified and do not work.  In 2011 statistics show that 54.3% of young
women were married between the ages of 15-19. With the changing laws of the
minimum age of marriage, it will decease child marriage and give the ability
for children to stay in school.
