Female's or Girl's age for marriage is 18 years and above.
So why Male's or Boy's age for marriage is 21 years and above? Why not 18?

Dear Student,

Please find below the answer to your question 
  • The legal age for getting married in India for girls is 18 and for boys is 21 which was based on the patriarchal thoughts of the society that 'wife should be younger than the husband'.
  • The second reason is also the consideration that the females are more mature by the set age as compared to their male counterparts.
  • And since they mature differently they have different age set for marriages.
  • Yet this is still under discussion as there is still debate on the factor of raising the age for the girls as well.
