Interactive Youth Nuptial Graphics
The 'Child Marriage' Infographic is Disturbing and Informative

{SummaryTitle}

The ‘Child Marriage’ infographic lays out the worldwide statistics on child marriage in particularly troubling areas. With a special interest on (mostly) developing countries in Africa, the Middle East and South America, the infographic provides some concerning data not only about illegal child marriages, but also for the legal ones. In countries like Niger, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and many other African nations, the legal age of consent for marriage is 15.

There is no set definition of child marriage; however it, like child soldiers, is generally regarded to be below 18. In these countries, a great percentage of youth are married by 18—partially for financial and security reasons. These are also areas of the world where the maternal deaths during childbirth are hugely high due to lack of resources.
