Monday, 11th October 2021

Love has no boundaries except for age. The laws protecting children and the vulnerable does not allow children below the ages of 16 to be engaged in love making except in special dispensation. This is because many science literature prescribe that most girls become sexually matured at the age of 16.

But these child protection laws differ from state to state especially when it comes to marriage.

The youngest couple in the world got married when the boy was 12 and the girl was 10 years old. The marriage is believed to had taken place somewhere in Nigeria last year. It is however not clear under what special dispensation the marriage between these kids (names withheld) was contracted.

However, reports intercepted by CitizenOne suggest that the families of both partners were in full support of the marriage. A white wedding was celebrated for the kids sponsored by their parents who might be wealthy people.

We have published some beautiful pictures of the wedding for the kids for the consumption of our cherished followers.

Thank you for reading. Follow me for more.
