What is the minimum age of marriage for girls with parental consent?



 

This map tells us the age at which girls can legally be married when parental consent exceptions that lower the minimum age are considered.

  • This variable includes cases where, in addition to parental consent, legislation requires that marriage is in the interest of the child or that the intended spouse is above the age of majority. We do not consider these requirements to be more protective than parental consent alone.
