Sweden will criminalize underage marriage even abroad

In a week, Sweden will criminalize underage marriage even if marriages have taken place outside of Swedish borders. This is a great thing happening for Swedish people and world. Most underage marriages are forced by parents.

Even if underage marriage is not forced by parents, it’s still child abuse. Sadly, some countries don’t recognize such marriage as child abuse and they allow it.

Legal age for marriage is 18 in most countries. However I, personally, think it should be 21. Marrying a person when you’re young is not wrong but may have terrible impacts. Now imagine what terrible impact it has when you’re underage.
