romanian gipsy princess got married at 12?

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/3148364.stm its happened in 2003. She wore a 4000£ wedding gown and a diamonds tiara. What do you think?

This is rubbish. The law in this country is that it is illegal to get married before the age 16. Therefore marriage is null and void. Either ours laws apply to everyone or they apply to no one. The selective application of law in this country is setting some dangerous precedents.

Totally agree with Kit Fang. This could be seen as child abuse in the eyes of the law. What sort of a country are we living in to recognise this marriage and call it legal. Destined for failure i think but there should be a law stating that if you don't follow the law in this country then you can't rely on the law to sort out things that go wrong later on. I think the parents should be arrested and the child (because thats exactly what she is ) taken into foster care.

These people happily live in our country until we ask them to follow the rules. Sorry, but my position on this is, no-one likes some of the laws, but if you don't respect them, get out. I don't care if your culture says you can get married at 14, in this country that is illegal, so don't do it. I think these people should be told to follow the law or leave, and this kid should be taken away from the parents, as this was almost certainly a forced marraige (i doubt she had a say in it, and even if she did, she's too young to have legally consented to the marriage, even with her parents support)

It makes a mockery of the sanctity of marriage to allow children to marry. According to the article she didn't want to marry but had effectively been sold as a bride when seven. I thought people couldn't be married under 'duress' or against their wishes?

A 'society' I have no respect for - child brides, makes me feel sick. But I think if i actually said what I think (based upon the evidence) I would get a violation. So in one sad respect similar to the child bride.

i think that it's terrible- wayyyy to young & she didn't have a say in it !? that's awful.
