Custom that forces families to give away their daughters in marriage as compensation for murder and as settlement of disputes.

12.Child marriage in Pakistan is a traditional way of arranging marriage that is centuries old.

Role of Poverty

Firstly the central government should pass the laws prohibiting early marriages and setting an age limit of 18.
Secondly awareness to the affected areas regarding the consequences of early marriages should be spread. This could be done by Imam’s in the mosques and teachers in the school. If the men of the society are educated about such issues then the effect will be wide spread because men make most such decisions.
