Child bride Krishna, 12, walks outside her house, as her husband Kishan Gopal, 14, sits on a "charpoy", or rope bed, in a village near Baran, located in the northwestern state of Rajasthan, July 30 , 2011. The legal age for marriage in India is 18, but marriages like these are common, especially in poor, rural areas where girls in particular are married off young. Some 47 percent of women aged between 20 and 24 years old were married before the age of 18, according to the government's latest National Family Health Survey.
