Getting married at the age of 14 or 15 is not uncommon for girls in Indonesia. Often their parents force them to marry as early as possible.

According to a family planning agency, more than 40 percent of the girls marry between the ages of 15 and 19.

But it is a trend the Indonesian government is trying to stop with plans to raise the legal age for marriage.
