Egypt: Egyptian Representative Amira Al-Adi, a member of the House of Representatives, revealed that a girl is married four times in one month, with every week a marriage without a waiting period.
Representative Amira Al-Adi, a member of the House of Representatives, said that Egyptian law forbids documenting marriage before the age of 18 because Egypt has signed an agreement stipulating that the age of marriage for a child is 18 years old, according to reports.

Representative Amira Al-Adi stated that the female circumcision case ended with a stiffening of the penalty for those who participate in or perform it, and the facility in which the operation is performed is subject to immediate action, and that case ended, noting that child marriage needs severe punishment.
She stressed that society needs to raise awareness of the problems facing a girl when she is forced into marriage at a young age, stressing that there are 117,000 cases of child marriage in Egypt, which she described as a very large number.
Also, MP Amira Al-Adi explained that there are marriages that take place at the age of 13, and there are governorates that have the highest rates of marriage for children.
And she concluded: “The National Council for Women has a case of a girl who gets married four times a month, and every week she marries one, and there is no multiple or any need,” which made Sherihan Abul-Hassan panic on the air and said, “4 times in a month.”
