ENG. Part I: Reading Passage
Early marriage is one of several harmful traditional practices toward women which are commonly practiced in several parts of the world. It is widely practiced in many parts of Ethiopia. The approximate percentage of women married in rural and urban areas before the age of 15 in four of  the regional states follow: 43% rural and 28% urban in Amhara, 27% rural and 19% urban in Tigray, 13% rural and 10% urban in Oromia, and 7% rural and 20% urban in SNNPR.

Parents often approve of their daughters being married when they are as young as 10 to 12 years of age even though the legal age for marriage in Ethiopia is 18. Marriage agreements even can take place at the age of between four to five years. Early marriage of girls is seen as a way to improve the economic status of the family through marriage since husbands often are very much older and financially more secure.
