The issue of child marriage is pressing in Turkey, with rights groups warning against the drastic numbers of child marriage.
According to Turkish law, the minimum age to marry for both men and women is 18. Only in exceptional situations, a judge order is required to marry off 17-year-olds. It is not legal to marry younger in any condition in Turkey.
