Last quote by Kirsten Di Martino

There are cases of children who have married them precisely as a form of protection, not necessarily during the conflict but as they make their way away to escape the conflict, on the way to Germany, for example. It's where the families felt, especially for the girl, if she was in a marital union, that would protect her from certain risks, like violence and sexual abuse.

The latest quote from Kirsten Di Martino is: “Others argue if you do [allow child marriage] some of the refugees might not claim they are married and just hide it and not come to the attention of the protection services. Therefore if they are in an abusive relationship or exploitative situation they may not be protected. It's not always a scenario of having a young girl married to a much older man, necessarily, because a lot of the refugees come from Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria and they are legally allowed to marry before the age of 18.”. It comes from the What should Germany do over its hundreds of under-age refugee brides? article.
