Child marriages?!?! 😲 NO!!! 😠

It’s estimated that “Child marriage rates in Bangladesh are amongst the highest in the world. Every 2 out of 3 marriages involve child marriages.” 😲 and “… 64 million girls around the world are forced into marriage before the age of 18.”!!!

Do you, also. know that “Child marriages were common in history.” ??? 😲 I didn’t!

They were even encouraged throughout the European region! Thus, “Princess Emilia of Saxony in 1533, at age 16 married George the Pious, Margrave of Brandenburg-Ansbach, then aged 48 years.”!!!
