उसकी शादी बचपन में ही हो गई ती
Hello. This is from a Hindi tale
एक बार की बात हैं कि एक गांव में एक जुलाहा रहता था। वह बहुत गरीब था। उसकी शादी बचपन में ही हो गई ती।
I don’t understand the last sentence. It look like “His marriage was in childhood” but this doesn’t make much sense to me. Any suggestions?
It means that he got married when he was still a child.
Child marriage used to be common in India even as late as the first half of the 20th century. It is still practised in certain rural pockets though it has been illegal for a while.
"Once upon a time there was a village where a weaver used to live. He was extremely poor. He was married in his childhood"
Child marriage was quite prevalent in earlier times. It is illegal now and text and stories contain its reference to educate about negative side of this malpractice.
