The John and Lilly’s wedding look as stunning as any other. The event was filled with roses, ribbons, and beautiful decor. John’s and Lilly’s families were there, too. On the surface, it looked like something out of a storybook. But the heartbreaking truth of Lilly — an 11-year-old girl — is true for the very real 15 million little girls who are married every year. Bridal Musings and UNICEF have collaborated on this powerful video to show the horrors of child marriage. These little girls are treated more like property than human beings. Child marriage happens all over the world, in just about every continent, but together we can stop it.
According to Bridal Musings and UNICEF: “The sad truth is that a girl who is married as a child is more likely to be out of school, experience domestic violence, and become infected with HIV/AIDS. She is more likely to have children when she herself is still a child, and is far more likely to die due to complications during pregnancy and childbirth.”
In the video, Lilly, who would normally be in middle school, marries 35-year-old John. Watch as her family looks on complicity in the living tragedy. They do nothing to stop it; in fact, they help move the process right along.



This isn’t just a video, it is a call to action. Please SHARE this powerful message with your friends and family on Facebook to spread awareness and put an end to child marriage!
