I thought we were supposed to think all cultures are equal. It is very unprogressive to cast aspersions on this creepy marriage stuff or Chinese eating dogs and cats. You, people, need some cultural sensitivity training!

This video only proves that the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is the Greatest COUNTRY on earth, because of our values and our culture. Sadly, the countries depicted in this video only shows how horrible and backwards those cultures are.

Its not a tradition in india. Even arranged marriage are happening with consent of both partners. Yes, it is still happening in some underdeveloped parts and that's too under pressure from elders and relatives. We love our sisters and daughter. But elders see daughters as burden on them or trade them in exchange for a girl for their son. It is very embarrassing for me as an Indian. Education to girls is only solution to the problem which India has done successfully to larger extent.

Breeding pedophilia! Why isn't this a crime?
Anmol Adhikari (1 month ago)
In Nepal , The situations have improved a lot over the past couple of years . Child marriage has almost been eradicated . However , the age of marriage is just between 17-21 which is surprising. Poverty and lack of proper education leads to early marriage . The situations have been quite improved however a lot has to be done . The INGOs and NGOs are just engulfing money and working too lrss than their potential . It is quite important to raise awareness all around . I hope i can do some good too with correct direction. I wanna help yet am helpless .

A lot of documentaries about early marriage due to arrange marriage but what has been done by the people who documented; have they done something for this children; the first speaker was even asked to help them but she cant; what i only see in this documentary for now is exploiting this kids by showing there faces...i wish someone will stand up for them.
Beejin marfoy (1 month ago)
Minie P if someone tries to stop it; they disgrace the family and can possibly go to jail. If a journalist had the ability to help, I’m sure most would.

If these 'educated' women were to read the Quran, it tells it's followers that their prophet married a girl of six, Aisha, and consummated at 5. So it's ALWAYS going to be accepted in Muslim countries. Disgusting and sad, and very true. And these people live in the western world too. Oh yes they do. Long gone are the days when people with degrees could find small pockets of illegal gatherings. Not only do the natives condone it, even the police disagree with the laws.

It is now old, but this is a wonderful video. I learned a lot from it which adds to my knowledge of this horrendous practice. Bless the little girl who said she would bust their heads with a rock! That is exactly what it will take to stop these ignorant, and yet evil, people from this practice. I don't think we should try to deny that men are behind this practice and women go along with it because they are helpless and have no choice If these societies are ever to improve, the women must rise and bust some heads! Men will never change the customs because they created them.

I'm thankful every single day that I was born in the US! Child brides, forced marriages, no education, the inability to make a single decision regarding your life sounds so hopeless and hellish.

Governments should help... There are God-given rights & guidelines. In the Baha'i Faith, bride and groom make mate choices without any interference, then consent of parents is required. The age of maturity is 15; marriage is not permissible before.

This might still be prevalent in some remote rural areas but it is drastically decreasing each year in India. With education spreading in all around believe me this trend will vanish. There's also, 'Save the girl child' by the govt. of India. I've never heard one case of child marriage in the North East part of India, yet what can I say when they've already said it's prevalent all over India?:) Frankly I'm more worried about the new trend of the West where these days kids as young as 11 to 16 are losing their virginity. There's a documentary on that but the name escapes me now. P. S. I respect what they're doing.

Child marriage is social evil & government is doing decent job to prevent it. Among some backward communities in Rajasthan child marriage takes place but that is not for money, it is just a cultural thing in those communities. Young girls are married in their age group and girl stays with her family post marriage ( She is not raped & marriage is consummated only after she attains puberty) Girl education is free & many state government are providing bicycles & moped to girls for commutation. Girls drop out from school for lack of seprate toilets & government is addressing that issue as well. Things are changing for better. Cheers.

In the US, the horror of marriage is being the male. Courts are totally against males not to mention society. "Marriage" in the US is female dominated. They define what men should think about it, how they should express their feelings, how males should react to female mood swings, what males should think about other attractive women, how men should shower, shave, eat, sleep, poop, pee, breathe, etc.... It's a female dictatorship that must be abolished. I will vote for the first presidential candidate that outlaws marriage in the US.

why do you think you should change ancient traditions just because you don't like it? typical Western civilization, trying to change the world by their own rules. when will you understand that sometimes people want to live their own life. not the one like kind white people wants...
By Ko (1 year ago)
typical western way of thinking. it is not good for me and you, but I'm wise enough to share culture and traditions of people. if they live that life, they are happy. they didn't ask nobody to change anything.

its sad bec. they think that theyre protecting their daughter by doing this, not knowing that theyre actually robbing her of her choice in life. they love their daughter, and actually hope for the best, and i think people just needs to educate them that its not the best for their children.

Laraisthebomb1212 (1 year ago)
It truly disturbs me how politically correct this journalist is. Trying to find beauty in these ceremonies, trying to search for religions other than Islam that practise this despotism. Yes, weddings in other cultures are beautiful , and yes, not all child marriages occur in Muslim countries and it's more about culture than religion. But honestly, it fucking baffles me, that the modern feminists today see this shit as anything other than pure evil. Look at that girl who's husband stabbed her, look at the veil that covers even her eyes. Cultures that see women as nothing more than virgins to be taken for glory are cultures that marry children; if a woman is only valuable as a wife or a Virgin, why care about the virgin? Why care about her age, her hopes, her dreams, her dignity, her autonomy? The fact we even entertain the notion that any of this should be understood as culture sickens me. I yearn for the day these women can rip of these veils and their oppressors are hung publicly.

JG (1 year ago)
I am from India and I feel sad about this sick practice! Even if it's just 1-2% of our population of 1.2bn we have to fight till each and every girl has equal rights and gets education!! Instead of wasting money on space programs Govt should fund programs to raise awareness about these issues and for education on girls! My parents are educated so they always treated me the same as my brother and educated me .Education is the key to change our society.
Dee Mash (1 year ago)
I hope western anti-feminists realize that their small bubble is not the whole world and places like this exist, and that's y we still need feminism!
