Is pre-marital sex a more urgent issue than child marriage?
It's true that abstinence prevents STDs and sex-related issues. If all these things come from sex, then we just get rid of the sex, right? However, it's not as simple as that.

People are bound to have sex someday. Some married couples aren't even educated about sex.
Abstinence being taught (as a moral behaviour) is absolutely okay. But saying that enforcing abstinence (through law) will solve all problems is false. There will always be people going around the law. Also, the more affected groups will probably be the lower-income citizens.

2. Maternal mortality rates are high among young mothers, as is the incidence of premature births and some other diseases that afflict the urinary tract and reproductive system of young mothers.
