Elderly man posed for photos with his 12 year old wife. Passers-by couldn’t resist their emotional reactions!

YouTuber Coby Persin is a world-famous provocateur. But, admittedly, his experiments always have a specific goal in mind. He wants to show people’s reactions to unusual situations, drawing attention to some really important issues. What is the norm in some countries is considered unacceptable and sick in others.

The man’s experiment was simple. A 65 year old man dressed in a suit posed for photos with a little girl dressed in a wedding dress. Passers-by reacted immediately. Their facial expressions said more than words could ever say. Many responded.

The goal of the experiment was to show the huge problem of forcing young girls into marriage. Every year, 33,000 girls as young as 6 years old are forced to marry much older men. If the girl’s parents agree, it is perfectly legal!


As you can see in the video, such things are unacceptable for New Yorkers. Men react sharply – they pull the girl away and want to report the man to the police, they believe that he is sick. They ask where her mother is. Their agitation had to be suppressed by security.


See for yourself, remembering that these things happen every day with the permission of their parents.
