  1. Thank you 🙏 for sharing your story. It must have been really hard and painful. I couldn’t read the entire article but I can feel how a little 11 year old must have felt to get married at a young age. Sadly child marriages still happen even now… even in some areas of my country. I just wish and pray that girls irrespective of their culture or caste are not subjected to such a harsh life at a tender age where they should be only studying and playing with their friends… I’ll definitely grab a copy and share this post with my friends as well. Again… thanks for sharing 🙏

  3. These life experiences need to be shared as early marriages still happen in India even though it’s against the law …. poor families are desperate and the girl children suffer!

  4. Laleh khanum. did I understand this right, that this happened to your mother? My heart was torn apart reading this, yet you know this even happens in the country I live in. I do believe that this has to be published as a book.

  6. Oh my! I have run short of words but I know it is unbelievaby true. This is a rampant practise even in some of my primitive communities till present in my home country. I feel so bad to even see that taking place in this century! It is a moral duty to fight this Vice. Thanks Laleh for sharing this story.
