Expert Answer:

Adolescent marriage and pregnancy is not legally allowed due to the following reasons:

(i) Early marriage and motherhood cause health problems in the mother and the child.

(iii) Early marriage and motherhood also curtails employment opportunities for the young woman and may cause mental agony as she is not ready for responsibilities of motherhood
