Every year 15 million girls are married as children, denied their rights to health, education and opportunity, and robbed of their childhood. If we do nothing, by 2030, an estimated 15.4 million girls a year will marry as children.

Every child deserves to enjoy their childhood by playing and studying. When these young girls are married off too soon, their entire wellbeing and personal development are in danger. They are often disempowered and will remain dependent on their older husbands. They are neither physically nor emotionally ready to become mothers and wives, and yet they are forced into such a life.

YouTuber Coby Persin once again conducted a social experiment that will definitely open our eyes to all the wrong things that are allowed in our society today. Watch how people react to seeing a 65-year-old man marry a 12-year-old girl. Will people step up and question the morality in this wedding, or will they simply sit back and brush this off?
