The startling video taken in Time Square, New York, shows a 65-year-old pensioner posing for photographs with his 12-year-old bride.
The odd couple left everyone open-mouthed in disbelief and it didn’t take long for someone to intervene.
One woman asks the girl if she was OK, the groom immediately cuts in and said it was fine as he had her parents’ permission.
Then a man steps in saying, “This is not right, you know this isn’t right. You can not do this to a little girl.”
Another woman tries to reason with the old man and took the girl away from him.
Watch the video:
This child bride stunt was inspired by the original campaign done by a group called “KAFA” which shows the sad reality of child marriage, where thousands of young girls in Lebanon, Syria and around the world are forced into this sickening ordeal.
