Can you get married at 16 in China?

In China where many aspects of family life remain heavily regulated, a recent wedding held for two 16-year-olds reignited the debate on early marriage. It prompted surprised comments online and in the mainstream media, not least because the legal marriage age in China is 20 for women and 22 for men.

Can you get married at 13 in China?

Last month, two 13-year-old Chinese children married one another. Either way, the wedding will not be recognised officially by the state as the legal age for women to marry in China is 20 and for men it is 22.
