See Photos Of Nigerian Couples Who Broke The Constituted Law Of Marriage

Nigerians today, tend to condemn teenage marriage, sometimes I wonder why, below are photos of young couples who broke 1990 rules on Marriage.

According to the laws regarding the legal age for marriage in Nigeria, under the marriage ACT 1990, the legal age is 21, but any age below this has to do with parent consent letter, for it to get approved.

In the year 2003, child marriage was legalized by Nigerian Government, under the child right ACT 2003, the legal age is now 18years.

Today, 17% of girls in the country are settling at the age of 15, and 78% are married by the time they hit 18 years.
