It is a general belief that family is the smallest unit of society. Marriage has a set of standards and qualifications coupled with duties and responsibilities. In Southern Philippines, marriage among Maguindanaons has a unique doctrine and qualification that is completely different from the cultural practices and standards among Filipino majority. The unique established standard and prerequisites among Filipinos would have hindered teenage success in education. The study conducted by Mollborn(2007) revealed that people predominantly believed early marriage decreases the teenage desire for education. This finding was confirmed in this similar study. The study primarily wanted to explore and described the experiences of student teenage mothers in Southern Philippines particularly in the predominantly occupied Bangsamoro. This study was only limited to their experiences, aspirations, and realizations. There were 12 participants who happened to be minor Maguindanaon mothers and returned back to school for education. Interviews and focused group discussions (FGDs) including audit-trail were conducted using purposive sampling to ensure consistency in the responses. The findings revealed that they went back to school the least is to finish high school although they find hard time and difficulty in the time management, financial and attention as a student mother and as a student. Moreover, the participants hoped to have some poverty alleviation driven programs and similar mechanisms offered to them by the local and national government.
