Weddings are supposed to be joyous and festive occasions, but this one is anything but a fairy tale.
About 15 million girls will be married as children this year – their right to a childhood ripped away. This video produced with Bridal Musings, one of the world’s most influential wedding blogs, aims to put a spotlight on this grim reality.
Hard to believe that humans are still being treated like property, and in this case it is helpless young girls. And this occurs all over the world.
Here is a statement put out by Bridal Musings and UNICEF (The United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund) regarding the sickening and dangerous nature of this horrible worldwide trend:
“The sad truth is that a girl who is married as a child is more likely to be out of school, experience domestic violence, and become infected with HIV/AIDS. She is more likely to have children when she herself is still a child, and is far more likely to die due to complications during pregnancy and childbirth.”
Marriage at such a young age is a incredibly sick, disgusting and disturbing practice that truly needs to be stopped. This practice MUST be outlawed across the world and these young, innocent girls MUST be saved.
