The prosecutor's office did not allow to marry 15-year old girl

April 18 2008

The Prosecutor's Office of the Bryansk region has banned 15-year old girl to marry.
As reported by Interfax, the prosecutor appealed the ruling Zhukovsky district administration Zhukovka, on which the marriage pregnant girl was allowed, and the Head of Administration received a warning.
Article 13 of the Family Code defines marriage age at 18.
Federal law provides that, in view of special circumstances may
be allowed marriage and before the age of 16 years. However, this
special procedure must be set by local governments. In
Bryansk region there is no legislation regulating the early marriage and
therefore need to be guided by federal law, that prosecutors and
made, said the prosecutor.
