THE EFFECTS OF EARLY MARRIAGE ON THE SOCIO-ECONOMIC AND EDUCATION DEVELOPMENT OF A CHILD IN EDUCATIONAL DISTRICT

 

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1     BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Marriage is the oldest institution in the world it was instituted by God Himself in the Garden of Eden.  Marriage was not the idea of any man. It was the original idea of God Almighty. God felt the need for marriage and instituted it “And the Lord God said, it is not good that the man should be alone, I will make him an help meet for him” Genesis chapter 2 verse 18.

Since then man and woman alike have always tried to live in companion of each other because they are created social being.

Marriage can also be define as a union between a man and a woman to become husband and wife with the above definition. 

Marriage is meant for mature man and woman and not for boys and girls because they can not yet cope with the challenges of marital life. Early marriage therefore is define as a union of a boy and a girl and a man to become husband and wife below the age of 18 years.

In the light of this study, when a girl below the age of 18, engages herself in marriage it is referred to as “Early Marriage”.

Finally to correct this social problem among this group of people is the reason why this study becomes important.

1.2     STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

The incident of early marriage in recent time has been on the increase in Nigeria despite all the enlightenment, campaigns and awareness through formal and informal education.

In Lagos State for instance, where almost all the ethic groups in Nigeria is represented, it is a common thing to see young girls with their children on their backs hawking different ware in the neighbourhood. Some have become more or less baby factories. There are still others who are maltreated and restricted by their husbands from selling or doing any types of work that can fetch them money.

They are totally dependent on their husbands and as a result of which they become unproductive. Also most of them feel like second class citizen because their educational background is nothing to write home about. They cannot express themselves in the public and as a result cannot sit in where other are:

1.3     PURPOSE OF THE STUDY

          1.       To find out what are the perceived causes of early marriage

          2.       To proffer solution to the problem associated with early marriage.

3.       To know how early marriage affect the socio-economic and educational development of a girl-child.

1.4     RESEARCH QUESTIONS

1.       Is there a relationship between early marriage and socio-economic development of the family.

2.       Is there a relationship between early marriage and rapid increase in population growth.

3.       Is there a relationship between early marriage and educational development of a girl child.

4.       Is there a relationship between unwanted pregnancy and early marriage.

1.5     RESEARCH HYPOTHESIS

1.       There is no significant relationship between early marriage and socio-economic development of the family.

2.       There is no significant relationship between early marriage and rapid increase in population growth. 

3.       There is no significant relationship between early marriage and educational development of a girl child.

4.       There is no significant relationship between unwanted pregnancy and early marriage,

1.6     SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY

It is hoped that this study will enable Nigeria parents to give equal opportunities to the training of their children. Instead of giving the girls away in marriage pre-maturally. It is also hoped that the study will enable Nigeria law-makers at all levels of government to enact laws that will make early marriage a punishable offense.

It is equally hoped that the result of their study will encourage student to abstain from early marriage or to reduce it to the minimum.

1.7     LIMITATION OF THE STUDY

The study will be focused on women in Yaba Local Government Area of Lagos with special attention on women in Makoko, Iwaya and Ebute Metta area of the local government area. However, this is also due to insufficient time and financial constraint encountered during the study.

I actually googled and saw about iproject master, copied the number and contacted them through WhatsApp to ask for the availability of the material and to my luck they have it. So there was a delay with the project due to the covid19 pandemic. I was really scared before making the payment cause I’ve been scammed twice, they attended so well to me and that made me trust the process and made the payment and provided them with proof, I got my material in less than 10minutes
