23 girls every minute around the world are married before the age of 18. In some countries, girls can legally marry as young as 12 years old. In other countries there are no laws to protect child brides. The legal marriage age for boys is often higher than for girls, despite the fact that pregnancy and childbirth are the leading cause of death for girls aged 15-19 in developing countries.
