Det multikulturelle samfunds berigelser: Libanon har 15 familielove – 1 for hver sekt

International organizations and NGOs in Lebanon say early marriage happens among the Syrian refugees as well as host communities.

Stopping it is almost impossible, because Lebanese law allows child marriage, sociologist Rafif Rida Sidawi told NOW. “The Lebanese family code allows marriage for girls as young as 13-14. In some confessions, even as young as 9.” (Lebanon has 15 different family codes, almost one for each sect. Many of them allow child marriage.)

Child marriages among Syrian refugees have turned into a lucrative business.
