The Sad Hidden Plight of Child Grooms

The horror of young girls being married off is not unknown and is talked about on occasion, but no one thinks about boys being married off too.  Yes, child marriage is far more detrimental for girls than boys - the teenage body is not actually ready to give birth multiple times - but it is still very bad for both.



I would like to see more research on the subject.  So far there really isn't much information on how child marriage impacts boys; other than the known consequences of dropping out of school and entering the workforce at a young age there really isn't much out there.
