Yet again, the evil of child marriage in India

Read this story first, will you, and then we’ll chat.

This is such a tragic story, and one that highlights the power of ignorance and, of course, money.

We are so used to reading (sad to say) stories of little girls being married against their will, that one doesn’t often think about boys being equally exploited.

This story is shocking on so many fronts.  A child being married against his will.  A young woman having no say in, nor control over, her own destiny.  And the greed of families, using their children as pawns to get money.

And don’t get me started on the police.

Truly tragic.
