In Ukraine, early marriage is closely linked to early sexual debut and unplanned pregnancy. Among the Roma minority, child marriage affecting girls and boys is driven by patriarchal traditions and poverty, among other factors.

This is one of 14 country summaries produced by UNFPA EECARO about child marriage in the region, including country-specific national and legal context, responses, and recommendations for the future.
