Child marriage has been quite prevalent in India since ancient times. The families from all strata of society irrespective of caste, creed and religion, matching of the girl-boy is done when they are simply children and for them it may be just as a child’s play. Instances are there when marriages are decided when prospective grooms and brides are not even born. It is strange enough such things are happening in various communities in India even in the 21st century.

It appears that solemnizing such marriages are a sort of fun for elders at the cost of poor innocent children who are deprived from exclusive privilege of choosing their life partner as things happened in the infancy , which should have been when they are in a position to understand the very meaning of the holy bondage of marriage.

There is the Child Marriage Restraint Act, 1929", which is enacted in the country strictly prohibiting such marriages. All the parties involved in this are liable to be punished. The provision of the act is: the Child Marriage Restraint Act, 1929,Child means a person who, if a male, has not completed twenty one year of age, and if a female, has not completed eighteen years of age ; (b) "Child marriage" means a marriage to which either of the contracting parties is a child; (c) "Contracting party" to a marriage means either of the parties whose marriage is (or is about to be) thereby solemnized and (d) "Minor" means a person of either sex who is under eighteen years of age. Unfortunately, such marriages take place in the broad day light and law enforcement authorities in most of the cases remain mock spectators. Ill effects of such marriages are very many. Many times these marriages could not sustain the mistrust of either of the couple when he or she finds his or her spouse to his or her disliking. It is quite possible that over the period passed since childhood marriage and when they are grown up there are a lot of disparities on account of level difference in education, bringing up, socioeconomic condition, temperamental growth, basic attitude towards life and so many. Under such circumstances, marriages may turn out to be curse rather than blessing in their life.

It is quite possible that such marriages may break or remain under a lot of strain and stresses and may even convert into a punishing hell. It is quite natural and logical that there should be matrimonial bondage between to persons only when they are mature enough to understand the

very purpose of marriage. Not only the two families but also the persons concerned to know each other and understand fairly well that the union are going to enter is ever lasting and their life to become enjoyable rather than a burden. This holy bondage not only restricts to the spouses only but also extends to their children and their relations on both sides. It is understood that marriages are decided in the heaven but are to be worked out on the earth with all senses enshrined in the human beings. Under no circumstances the marriages should not be attempted on emotional factor, any sort of greed like dowry, external appearance, social status etc. which may fade away and evaporate after some time and it may turned out to be utmost dilemma and night mare ever hanging over their heads like a dagger.

In such situations, whole family including children suffers and marriage becomes more a curse than a blessing. Even if either of the spouses makes it a compromise for any reason whatsoever, it is not smooth going and bitterness ever remain and very much reflected in their day-to-day behavior. Let it be known that marriage is a sacred social institution involved over centuries together and a binding force for not only two persons concerned but also completely human society. People who have a happy married life are divinely favored and Almighty God has showered ultimate fortune upon them. It is a fact that a happily married couple can face the hustles and tussles of life so easily as if it is simply a walk through. I wish might God bring happiness of married life to every body.

Let us not indulge in haste like marrying children in their infancy and age utter ignorance. Beware of the fact that child marriage may bring a total damage not only to two concerned but also to their respective families. Let us hope every body understand the importance of marriage and solemnize it when it is a right age and both are physically and mentally well prepared to take responsibilities following this important mile stone in the life. Let us build a happy family, a prosperous society and enjoyable life.
