Hammad said, "The marriage of Syrians is divided into 3 sections; first: marriage is legal and where it is an official marriage contract at a religious judge and then prove the fact of marriage in official circles .

The number of those who married in this way by government statistics, is 2,500 of which 450 incidents include marriage for girls younger than 18 years where the judge approves the marriage as legitimate after to checking the civil marriage status.

Section II: a legal marriage, but not officially, where it is a reality of marriage however is not documented in official circles for many reasons, including the difficulty of getting the couples permission of their state or the difficulty of getting the official end of marriage for girls (in order for them to marry again) especially some divorcees , widows and wives of martyrs .

Section III: It does not fall under the legal concept of marriage and often takes the path of pleasure marriage or customary marriage, which in some cases involve the presentation of prostitution for such purposes.

And some sisters employed as domestic workers and some living conditions result in difficult psychological problems that are involved in this tragedy. "
