Two girls who recently saw their friend getting married speak out, both are thankful that it wasn’t them. Fifty-two per cent of married women in Maharashtra admit to consummating their marriages before the age of 18, a government’s District Level Household and Facility Survey (DLHS-3) report reveals.
