Marriageable Age Under Myanmar Customary Law
- Every citizen of a country has the right to freely follow one's customs, culture and traditions and profess the religion of his choice subject to certain limitations. These fundamental rights are expressly declared by the respective constitution. In Myanmar, there are four main religions, namely – Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam and Christianity. Accordingly, they have their own family laws and are governed by their respective family laws which mainly concern with family matters, such as marriage, divorce, inheritance and matrimonial rights. Except in these cases, they all are governed by the laws of the land without any exception.
