Universal and early female marriages are the two features of the Indian nuptiality behaviour, which have made their own contribution to the country's population problem. Moreover, early marriages in the country have been, to some extent, responsible for female ill health and the current incidence of maternal and child mortality. Besides being directly related with female marriage age, male marriage age also has similar consequences for family welfare.

Abstract


Universal and early female marriages are the two features of the Indian nuptiality behaviour, which have made their own contribution to the country's population problem. Moreover, early marriages in the country have been, to some extent, responsible for female ill health and the current incidence of maternal and child mortality. Besides being directly related with female marriage age, male marriage age also has similar consequences for family welfare.
