Not really. This is just the start of a viral advertising campaign against child brides. It’s estimated there are 39,000 child marriages EACH DAY in the world. Most occur in the Mideast and Africa.  I assume they chose a white Scandinavian model to be politically correct. You can read more here:

This picture, however, IS real. Tahani (in pink), married her husband Majed when she was 6 and he was 25. Her friend, Ghada, in the foreground, was also a child bride.  The couples live in Yemen and do not have children.

I don’t know what percentage of brides are children in the Mideast but I’m sure there’s a Koran verse or two that justifies it. Eastern and Western cultures are totally different. So when we try to push a Western concept like democracy or womens’ rights on these people, we invariably lose. We’ve lost these “wars” for 13-years.  We’re losing now.
