Patricia 12:49 PM, Jul 24, 2020

Hi! I would like to request for statistics on the following:
1. marriages wherein one or both of the parties are minors; and, 
2. specific age of the minor party at the time of marriage.

I am researching on the prevalence of child marriages in the Philippines, and the determination of adequacy of our current laws giving no legal effect to marriages contracted below 18 years old. 

Thank you!
