    Default Why do you think teenage pregnancy rates are going up in every race except the asian

    If anyone has any facts (or opinions) on why this is I would love to hear them.

    If anyone knows any websites that address the issue that would also be helpful.

    And if you've had any experiences with teenage pregnancy (either yourself or someone else) I would also like to hear about that.

    Default Child marriage

    In India, the marriageable age for male is 21 while that for a female is 18.


    Child marriage is prohibited according to law, but still exists (secretly) in some of the Indian villages. You can see teenage mothers in various Indian villages - Karnataka, Maharashta, Rajasthan etc, to name a few.

    Teenage pregnancy without marriage is taboo in India, so the cases are a minimum.
