  • Child Brides in Nepal

    11,775 views 2 weeks ago
    The Nepal government has failed to take sufficient steps to end child marriage, in spite of promises to do so, and girls and boys across the country continue to be deeply harmed by child marriage. In July 2014, Nepal’s government pledged to end child marriage by 2020. By 2016, this goal had shifted to ending child marriage by 2030. The government has yet to take the concrete steps needed to achieve either goal.

    Nepal has the third highest rate of child marriage in Asia, with 37 percent of girls marrying before age 18, and 10 percent marrying before the age of 15, despite the fact that the minimum age of marriage is 20 under Nepali law. A smaller percentage of boys (an estimated 11 percent) marry before age 18. Nepal’s government has taken some action to stop the practice of child marriage, but a long-promised national plan to end child marriage has met with delays. Human Rights Watch research--based on interviews with 104 children and young adults who married as children – documents the economic and social pressures that lead to child marriage and the devastating results of those marriages.
