Child Brides in Nepal
Nepal's government has failed to take sufficient steps to end child marriage, despite promises to do so. In July 2014, Nepal’s government pledged to end child marriage by 2020. By 2016, this goal had shifted to ending child marriage by 2030. The government has yet to take the concrete steps needed to achieve either goal.
Nepal has the third highest rate of child marriage in Asia, with 37 percent of girls marrying before age 18, and 10 percent marrying before the age of 15, despite the fact that the minimum age of marriage is 20 under Nepali law. A smaller percentage of boys (an estimated 11 percent) marry before age 18.
Human Rights Watch research — based on interviews with 104 children and young adults who married as children — documents the economic and social pressures that lead to child marriage and the devastating results of those marriages
