Madina rethinks marriage
17 year old Madina's marriage was arranged four months ago, and she was excited about it. She would spend all day talking on the phone with the boy, and her attention slowly moved completely away from her education. As she obsessed about her upcoming wedding, she became irregular at school, tuition, and cluster meetings.
The Youth Mentors (YMs) visited her home to find out more about it from the mother. She said "Madina's marriage was arranged with very nice man, who does good work. She had to get married sooner or later...'. She added that they were thrilled to have found such a good prospect so quickly, and it only made sense to speed things along.
