It’s no surprise people kicked off when they saw a 65-year-old man take wedding pictures with a 12-year-old girl in the middle of Times Square?


YouTube star, Coby Persin, created this social experiment designed to raise awareness about child brides all over the world.

The legal age of marriage differs around the world. In some states the age can be as low as 12 for girls and 14 for boys with parental consent. In the UK it is 16. The age is ten in Sudan under certain religions.




New Yorker's didn't stand for a child getting married to an older man, and neither should anywhere else in the world be ok with it!

The set up was part of a social experiment to raise awareness that, in many places around the world, it is legal to marry kids of this age.

YouTube star Coby Persin, 21, claims it’s even legal in New York City, so he took to Times Square.
