Gypsies Prompt Outrage After Marrying Eight-Year-Old Girl

An eight-year-old girl did her best to appear confident during a ceremony that was out of her control. She would be wed to a boy two years older than her in a ceremony in Dolj County was women flock to either side of the aisle.

The Romanian gypsies are more comfortable with child marriage and the county made a show of the ceremony surrounded by older women celebrating the bizarre event.

The 8-year-old girl donned a pink and sparkly gown that appeared more like a Barbie cosplay than a wedding dress. A local singer performed traditional melodies to the steps of the bride as onlookers touched her forward.

The groom, the 10-year-old boy, was seen lightly touching her long ringlets as the pair began dancing along to the folk music with his friends by his side to boost his confidence. The singer's lyrics say, "Leave the toys aside, today you've married your bride."

The next step saw the bride lifted to a stool so all could see her gown which reached to the ground despite the stool. Older women were forced to tighten the gown on the go as it was clearly not meant for such a young child.

The girl does her best to appear confident as she poses for the ceremony as old ladies pamper and sew her dress. The footage has gone viral as child marriage is largely frowned upon in western cultures and especially in progressive countries.

A local man, Don Vochin, explained that it was not a legally binding wedding and it was only a show. The official ceremony would have to wait until the pair is older. The UN Office of the High Commissioner on Human Rights said several Romanian communities practice "early marriage".

The ceremony was more of a celebration of an arranged marriage and the pair won't be expected to have sex and would continue living with their respective families.

Glad to see some cultures are still operating fruitfully. I am envious.

It is a Promise Marriage,



Its a Old World tradition.

What many countries call a Betrothal for Family Political reasons.

They may or may not get married, but it brings to families closer and working together in a partnership.
