The marriageable age for men is going to reduce to 18 years from 21 years. The Law Commission has suggested that the legal age for marriage for both men and women should be fixed at 18 years. It is learnt that amending these laws would prevent child marriages. The Special Marriage Act, 1954, prescribed 18 years and 21 years as the legal minimum age for the marriage for women and men respectively. However, most of the girls and boys are entering into wedlock only after getting settled in the career.
