Child Bride on Balika Vadhu, highest TV show in India

Outside Mumbai, India

there is a daily soap  based on a girl who is only 12 years old and married. She got married at the age of 8, where she lives with her husband and in-laws. The viewers see this show as  a custom and traditional India. This show is one of India’s most highly rated TV shows. An estimated 74 million people watched it in July. Though some fans love it, Indian lawmakers argued that the show violates the Indian Constitution and demands the show to be banned, for the girl was illegally married. In India girls are allowed to be married at 18, and boys at 21.
