Muslim girls can marry after age 15 : Gujarat Court

A Gujarat High Court judge has ruled that once a Muslim girl attains puberty or completes 15 years of age, she can marry. While quashing legal proceedings against a Muslim youth who married a 17 year old girl, the Justice said such a marriage would not require parental approval. In the case the judge observed that the parents of the girl had accepted the marriage and the couple was personally present in the court and confirmed their marriage, the young wife also said she is happily residing with her husband.
