Perhaps the secret intention behind the entire matter is to never allow a girl to grow into a woman for she will then truly have her own mind and realize that she has a choice to make. How easy to manipulate a little girl into a situation with the excuse of saving her from prostitution and sin .It is all about control .What truly baffles me since long though is that none seems to remember the little boys. Has anyone of those people thought about the fact that they too might engage in *sinful* activities if they remain unmarried ?
In my own opinion the argument is nothing but idiotic,be cause it is not marriage that prevents going astray but the education,example,healthy love and upbringing a child receives from his/her parents.
One thing about the argument in favour of girl-child marriage is that it is so narrow-minded to see the girl-child as first, a sex tool and second, an oven for baking babies. Have these people paused to consider how the babies born by these girls are being brought up? Surely, the baby-mother, knowing little or next to nothing about everything, especially a serious thing such as bringing up a child, (she is just a child herself, for God’s sake!) ends up sending out into the larger society children brought up by a child that will never attain the psychological maturity to fit into society. The results are the scars we are now at the pain of living with: Ahmed Yerima and the Boko Haram Boys. Nobody brought up by a real woman will think and act in the manner of such trash.
