Question: What is the legal age for marriage in Cambodia?

Cambodian law forbids child marriages, setting the minimum age for marriage at 18. [5] Exceptionally, a person can marry at the age of 16. [6] However, in conformity with cultural and indigenous traditions, Cambodian girls marry young.

How old do you have to be to get married in Cambodia?

Cambodian girls usually marry between 18 and 25 years of age. If a woman older than that remains single her parents start to worry that no desirable man will ask their daughter to marry. Cambodian men rarely marry an older woman.
