YouTube star Coby Persin brought a 65-year-old ‘groom’ and his 12-year-old ‘bride’ into Times Square in New York to stage a photoshoot. The aim was to raise awareness around the issue of child marriage and see how people would react.
The experiment was inspired from KAFA’s brilliant video that was shared back in December 2015.
Child marriage is still a huge problem in Lebanon and in the whole world. It is reported that 33,000 girls are married as children every day, and denied from their rights to education and opportunity, and robbed of their childhood.
