Marrying young may lead to mental illness

(WFLX) - Women, who marry before the age of 18, may face a higher risk of mental illness. This is according to a new French study that looked at more than 18,000 women.

More than half, who were married as children and teens, suffered from mental disorders throughout their lives.

Researchers say it's not clear whether childhood marriage is to blame for the higher rate of mental illness because other factors could be to blame.
