Girl, 8, ‘Marries’ Boy, 10, In Gypsy Wedding, Outrage Follows

An eight-year-old girl and a ten-year-old boy were “married” at a gypsy wedding in Dolj County, Romania.

The video at the event shows a young girl surrounded by older women who are prepping her pink sparkly gown, notes The Sun.

A singing DJ tells the young groom to “leave the toys aside, today you’ve married your bride.”

The  bride is propped up on a stool, for all to gaze at her gown.

The video stirred outrage when it was posted online.

The UN Office of the High Commissioner on Human Rights claims a number of Romanian communities practice “early marriage.”
