    What makes congress think they can change laws in other countries!

    • Ellen says:

      The countries where child marriage is still a problem already have laws against it – but the local custom supports it. This bill was to support community based efforts to change attitudes of local leaders, parents and their children about this custom that violates the human right to enter into marriage with full and free consent.
