Netizens on twitter are bursting with the change of women's legal age. They are arguing that 'Marriage equality is not a choice. It is a legal right'. The hashtag #marriageage is trending on Twitter.
The Indian Government raised the legal age of marriage to 21 from 18 for women. For men it is already 21. The government argues that this will empower women and ensure gender parity.
