What's the child marriage rate? How big of an issue is child marriage?

There is no publicly available government data
on child marriage in Bahrain.

Are there country-specific drivers of child marriage in this country?

Child marriage is driven by gender inequality and the belief that women and girls are somehow inferior to men and boys.

There is very limited information on child marriage in Bahrain.

What has this country committed to?

Bahrain has committed to eliminate child, early and forced marriage by 2030 in line with target 5.3 of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Bahrain acceded to the Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1992, which sets a minimum age of marriage of 18, and acceded to the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) in 2002, which obligates states to ensure free and full consent to marriage.

During Bahrain’s 2014 review, the CEDAW Committee reiterated recommendations for the government to raise the minimum age of marriage to 18.

What is the minimum legal framework around marriage?

The minimum legal age of marriage is 16 years. However girls can marry before 16 with the permission of the Sharia Court as per Article 20 of the Family Act.
