Some parents still see daughters as 'baggage' and the whole point of having them are just to send them off marriage. Sad. They don't even educated enough to know about contraception. Just another never ending cycle of poverty.

This is sadly always been exist since decades, and the marriage are not protected from goverment because its not submitted in legal marriage law, they're married off with religion's law. This happened often in side-city areas, and sometime many people influenced by influencer who married young because they think its pure love when you're marrying people that you love and didn't go to relationship phase ( girlfriends and boyfriends), they thought its brave and commited love.

Sick of poor people's complaint of their lives.

Sofia Roux says:

At least the men take responsibility as husbands and fathers.. compare to situation in other poor countries where the young girls are becoming single mothers.

Binaa Na says:

As an Indonesian who live in a village, I could tell that child marriage happened a lot here, and I think it increasing every year. Here you could see teenagers getting married and have a kids but no job. As a result, their parents are the ones who pay for their lives. So it is not improving their economy, but even falling into poverty. And it's true that sometimes parents doesn't really care who the groom is, because that just want their kid to get married. I feel bad to said this but, a lot of them are going through MBA (marriage by accident) so they "forced" to get married (bcs some of them think that it's disgrace their family.
