The trend of child marriage has increased tremendously since the lockdown due to the Corona pandemic. People’s income has decreased. Poor people want to be freed by handing over their marriageable daughters to suitable husbands. But they don’t know how much harm they are doing to their own daughters by marrying at an immature age.
