Students Against Child Marriage's Object Summary:

This study explores whether or not personality has an impact on the success of early marriages. A group of 72 teenage couples was sampled. Before marriage, each study participant took a 16PF personality test which was studied along with the status of the marriage three to five years later. Findings indicate that personality may have an impact on whether marriages succeeded.
