It sounds really crazy when there are people in Sudan fighting for child marriage. Do they really understand the concept of such rule and how dumb it was? It was a good thing that United Nations Population Fund or UNFPA has been very vocal standing against it. Well, who would support such bill when there's no one who will benefit from it but the bad people. We need to understand that children have their own lives to live, and they are not yet ready for a married life. Don't rob that chance to a kid, because it only happens once in our lives.
