Underage Marriage

UK Mosques Agree to perform underage marriages

Is this allowed under UK Law?

Muslim Clerics might agree to perform under age marriages but they are not recognised in UK Law. The legal age in the UK is the same for sexual consent which is 16

Can a man marrying and under age child be prosecuted?

From 2014 underage marriage became a criminal offence so the parents of the child and the man entering into the marriage would be prosecuted
