A 14-year-old girl Nada was engaged to a 15-year-old boy Fares. This engagement ceremony occurred in Kafar al-sheik Governorate.
The videos went viral and started a controversial debate among the people. The host asked the boy’s mother about the engagement in a national TV show. The mother confirmed the engagement disclosing the underage couple’s names as Fares and Nada.
Mother defends the engagement of children
They both are young and love each other. We always say that they are made for each other and thus we did their engagement officially.
The host asked the boy’s mother if that doesn’t think that her boy was too young for such a big move, to which she said, her son might seem young but for them, he was all grown up and a wise person.
He is responsible for his studies and his work. He works with his father after school. The wedding is set to take place after four years.
In my personal opinion, even 18 years of age is too young for getting married. A marriage is a great responsibility and you need to be ready for that mentally which requires time.
