Is the child marriage still valid if the male adult or husband has been jailed for the crime?
The validity of such a marriage will be based on whether the person who was a child at the time the marriage took place wants the marriage to exist/continue or not. Therefore, if the male adult/husband is jailed for the child marriage for two years and the girl child still wants to stay in the marriage, such a marriage will be valid and legal. However, if she does not want to stay married with the husband, such a marriage can be cancelled.
