Marriage Age in Nepal

Underage marriage is strictly prohibited in Nepal and can lead to severe punishment according to the law. The Government of Nepal has separate laws regarding the required age for marriage in Nepal.
According to Section 67 of "The National Civil (Code) Act, 2017 (2074)," anyone above the age of 20 may register their marriage with the district court where they now reside. 
If either or both partners are below 20 years, then that marriage is not recognized as legal in Nepal. Currently, Nepal’s marriageable age is among the highest in the world. But the government of Nepal is preparing to lower the marriageable age from 20 years.

Nepal's Civil (Code) Act, 2017 (2074) states that the punishment for child marriage is imprisonment for up to three years and a fine of up to 10,000 rupees
