Early marriages and childbirth in the tender years has serious consequences on the health of girls. “Poverty, social problems and other factors are the main reasons of early marriage of girls,” said Ahad Joudi, director general of East Azarbaijan Province on Wednesday. “Unfortunately, during the first nine months of the current year that ends in March, 3,700 girls and two boys under the age of 15 got married in the province,” quoted him as saying. Official figures say the rate of early marriages is higher in fringe areas of Tehran and other metropolises, as well as in provinces of Sistan-Baluchestan, Khuzestan, West Azarbaijan, and East Azarbaijan.
