Help Young Girls Who Are forced to Marry When Young

Why we should raise money for girls who are forced to get married when young.

I strongly believe that people should raise money to help girls in Africa to stop them from getting married when they are young.

We don’t allow legal marriage until eighteen.

Firstly, I certainly believe this because when married young they will not be able to build a big vocabulary because they will be out of school. They also need more time to learn and study. When they are forced to get married when young they just get partnered up with people they don’t know.

Secondly the person they are forced to marry could treat them with abuse and neglect.

Thirdly they might not be able to get a job and work to get food or water as well as a place to sleep apart from the ground.

Do you understand what it would be like to get married when you are young, have your own kid when young and suffer abuse when young? It would not feel that good at all and never will.

  1. G’day Madeleine,
    I have always sponsored a child ever since I got my first paycheck as a teacher. Giving a girl child an education, will always improve family life in her future. You have written a good piece of persuasive writing on this topic!

    Hi Mrs.Moore,

    I think that being forced to marry is very weird. I say this because if you love someone, you would marry them. Not because you’re forced to. I’d love to help girls in Africa with this problem! Do you know how old the youngest person was to get married? You can comment back to me at this link http://shirleys6th.edublogs.org/category/tess/

    Best,
    Tess
