"Training on the risks of early marriage for BSU students"

"Complications of early marriage" training was held by Zumrüd Alizadeh, teacher of the UNESCO Department of Human Rights and Information Law, jointly organized by the members of the Social Sciences and Psychology Faculty of the "BSU Volunteers" organization and the "De Novo" club.

The training covered various aspects of early marriage, including its definition, legal and societal implications, causes, prevalence, victims, and outcomes. Reference was made to Article 10 of the Family Code, stipulating the legal age of marriage as 18, with the possibility of a one-year reduction under specific circumstances. Emphasis was placed on the lack of physiological and psychological readiness among young individuals for marriage, leading to severe repercussions later in life. These repercussions encompass a spectrum of issues, including domestic violence, maternal and infant mortality, and physical and mental health challenges. Early marriage was noted to be more prevalent among families opting for underage unions, exacerbating the problems. Additionally, marrying young girls while they are still in their childhood can result in neglect of their own children when they become mothers, contributing to significant psychological distress.

During the session, attendees explored social and legal solutions to address the issue, with ample opportunity for students to ask questions and engage in discussion.
