Every year worldwide, 12 million girls under the age of eighteen get married; many of them are even much younger. In Bangladesh, child marriage is prohibited by law but the law is not well enforced and child marriages occur on a large scale. The older the girl, the more her parents must pay for the dowry which only makes it worse.
