Hare krishna,
As in vedic culture child marrriage was there and it was benificial also, why we don't implement that in ISKCON.what are benifits and problems.
as i understand some problems
1) Boys are getting up in mace of unnecessary education therefore they don't become settle in life
2) girl parents feel boy should be settle but currently no boy is settle atleast till 25 age
1)Youth can be saved greatly by danger of lusty feelings
2) less exploitation of innocent persons

In Vedic culture during those periods when human Morale was at the highest purity, families were big joint families and not nuclear like present days. Currently level of human morale has steeply gone down. In such times the child marriage is a risky task. However in vedic days, it was the best system for a healthy marital state of families and in turn of the society at large.
Advantages :
1) Married couple had ample time to become friends from their adolescent age.
2) As they grew together, they slowly learnt about mating together.
3) Time and living in touch increases love and affection for each other.
4) Understanding the nature, the likes and dislikes of the life partner was at its best.
5) Nothing was hidden, no secretes between the partners.
and many more.
But as time passed on children achieivng maturity early due to environment, film, magazines, TV, media etc. this system became disadvantageous for girls specially. and now it can't be thought off, because children cannot control their desire to fulfil body hunger, lust for body, and act responsibly for the after-effects.
