Crowd enraged as 65 Year old man marries 12 Year old girl in Times Square

Youtube social experimenter Coby Persin made a video to raise awareness that, in many places around the world, it is legal to marry pre teenaged kids.

He opens the video with a shocking fact ‘Child marriage is legal in over 91 countries in the world’.

Persin, 21, claims it’s even legal in New York City, so along with two actors in wedding costume he took to times square, dressed as a wedding photographer.

In minutes of the scene being setup, people begin to get involved.

‘This is bulls***! This is not right!’ one man says. ‘And I’m sure if we called the cops, you would get locked up!’

Others ask if the girl is ok and try to separate her from the man.

Shockingly in some states within the US  the age is as low as 12 for girls and 14 for boys. In the Sudan the age aan be as low as ten under certain religions.
