Conclusion Both table and chart show that there are many applications for the
young marriages in Malaysia. The minimum age for women to get
married is 16 years old while for men is 18 years old with the
permission from the Shariah court for the Muslim and the minister
approval for the non-Muslims.
Recommendation In my opinion, youngsters nowadays should spend their teenage
time by studying for their future. This is because if they have good
education, they can improved their life and their partner’s life.
