Jordan raises ‘exceptional’ marriage age from 15 to 16

Jordan’s parliament on Monday amended marriage laws to allow judges in “exceptional” cases to permit minors to wed from the age of 16, up from a previous minimum of 15.

Women’s groups in Jordan have long campaigned against the marriage of minors. Last week, Human Rights Watch urged Jordan’s parliament to forbid the practice, noting that the “vast majority” of cases involve girls rather than boys. “Jordan should seize the opportunity to prevent child marriage and enforce the minimum marriage age of 18...
