The objective of this research is to look into under what circumstances child marriage does exist and how girls’ living conditions can be improved. Focus shall be put on child marriage in general exemplified in particular in Kumi Municipality, Kumi District; this qualitative study is based on various reports regarding the subject in different areas. As the theoretical framework, the sex role theory is applied in order to analyse the phenomenon. Studies indicate a great difference in the number of young married girls in comparison to boys across the globe. Even though boys can be victims of child marriage, the consequences are less severe and therefore, focus shall be put on girls only in this research. The number of girls entering early marriage has not been found to stagnate everywhere, but the age of when entering marriage tends to increase. In fact, child marriage has become more common in some areas, From the research it is concluded that one cannot generalize all underlying causes of child marriage, but one must be aware of the specific circumstances in the particular areas of Kumi Municipality Kumi District. Conclusions regarding underlying factors and correlations are further to be found and presented in the text. Keywords: Child marriage, Kumi Municipality, Kurni District, Social norms, extreme poverty
