#Iraq first introduced its Personal Status Law in 1959, when under the Government of Abdul Karim Qassim (1958-1963), it was made #law, that a woman was allowed to marry at the age of 18 years.Under the rule of #Democracy in Iraq (2003-present) the Parliament is wanting to revise the law, to lower the age of marriage from 18 down to 9.If these changes are made in Iraqs law, this will mean that #Iraqi democracy will share the same age for #marriage, as the terror organisation known as the Islamic State.
