Child marriage is still a common practice in most of the Middle East, Asia and Africa, especially in countries that practice Sharia laws.
As you can see in the report below by CNN on a 47-year-old Saudi man married 8-year-old girl that was sold by her own father.
When the girl's mother appealed to the Sharia court, the judge rejected her request to cancel the marriage contract and approved the marriage.
An estimated 15 million girls under 18 are married each year. Girls who marry before they turn 18 are less likely to remain in school and more likely to experience domestic violence. Everything possible must be done to protect these vulnerable children.
Under Sharia law girls can marry at the age of 6, just like the Prophet Muhammad from the Koran did when he married Aisha. Muhammad consummated his marriage with Aisha when she was nine.
