Violence and Child Marriage - The Unspoken and Disturbing Truth - Day 291




If you haven't already, I suggest to read the Previous blogs to have encompassing understanding with regards to Child Marriage in terms of the severe Problems and the Practical Solutions that would implemented within an Equal Money Capitalism System:




Abusive child marriages will END in an Equal Money System - Day 284

Child Marriage will END in an Equal Money System (Overview) - Day 285

Poverty and Child Marriage will END in an Equal Money Capitalism - Day 286

Education Will END Child Marriage in an Equal Money Capitalism - Day 289

Health Disasters and Child Marriage will END in an Equal Money System - Day 290


The Problem:


Here is some Factual Info:

  • Girls who marry before 18 are more likely to experience domestic violence than their peers who marry later. A study conducted by ICRW in two states in India found that girls who were married before 18 were twice as likely to report being beaten, slapped or threatened by their husbands than girls who married later.
  • Child brides often show signs symptomatic of sexual abuse and post-traumatic stress such as feelings of hopelessness, helplessness and severe depression.






Unlike my Previous blogs where the Data and information were very much spread all over the internet, the issue with Domestic Violence and Abuse is less scares. However, I understand why - the girls are so powerless from getting support and assistance in walking away from a life of abuse and for most part, even if they complain, there will be no one who would assist them as you can see in the article: AFGHANISTAN: Widespread child marriage blamed for domestic violence (which I will expand upon in my next blog in relation to Religion/Culture and Child Marriage. )


So - this blog is not backed up with facts and data like my previous blogs but as far as I'm concerned, I'm certain that child Abuse within child marriage is existent, I'm certain that these girls are powerless and require our assistance and support - humanity assistance and support, to never again allow any form of abuse towards children specifically - Verbally or Physically.


The Solution:

As you've seen in my previous blogs, there are ways and means to stop child marriage and in that, prevent the consequences that comes with it.

I showed you how Child Marriages can be stopped and why it must be stopped and with the Implantation of the Equal Money System, we would end all Abuse and Suffering of young girls that are currently forced to marry a man.

Ending child marriage must be a priority in the global understanding to end violence against children while providing each and every human being with an Equal opportunity to a fulfilling, Dignified and worthy Life with the establishment of a world wide Equal Money system.



The Reward:


I don't really have to specify it Do i? it is crystal clear what would be the Reward in Ending Child Marriages in relation to Violence and Abuse. No one that is sane in their mind, would want to see their child being abused by their partner so let's not accept and allow it happening to any child in this world as a whole.


This specific point is not about having a reward - it is about having a life that is safe, protected and cared for which shouldn't be rewarded but unconditionally given to every single human being, animal and plant in this world.
