: 12-Year-Old Norwegian Girl set to Marry 37-Year-Old Man as a Child Bride

There is something very strange going on in Norway at the moment. At the root of it all is a cause the country, and two people in particular are highlighting, and very successfully Child marriages. At the center of what has become a fully-blown controversy are 12-year-old Thea and 37-year-old Geir. Currently Thea is contributing virtually daily to a blog in which she is detailing all the major events which are taking place in the lead up to her big day. However something doesnt quite fit. In Norway, you have to be 18 to legally marry, so what exactly is going on

We are told that we can, collectively, stop this wedding from taking place. It is up to the outside world to condemn what is about to happen. It is no coincidence that Saturday the 11th October is also the UNs International Day for girls

Every day, throughout the world, 39,000 young girls are robbed of their childhood by being forced into an arranged marriage. It is this fact the Norwegians want to highlight and bring to the worlds attention

As Thea continues to blog about her forthcoming nuptials she reveals such telling information that is intended to shock us all, to stop us, and to get us to make a difference. As her blog says: To digitally attend in the wedding and support the campaign, you can show your support by donating your voice through the campaign site StopPbrylLupet and donate a Facebook or Twitter update who will be published on the wedding day

Theas blog site also states We believe that provocation is a powerful tool in order to demonstrate a reality that truly is very provoking. We hope people will mobilize against child marriage by being girl sponsors, so that most of the 39,000 girls facing Theas situation every day can escape their brutal fate

the outrageous story of Thea the 12-year-old child bride is thankfully not real. It is a marketing stunt from childrens development charity Plan International, aimed at raising awareness to the 39,000 children around the world who are forced into marriage daily.

The blog includes posts from children who were married off before turning 18, including Latifa a 15-year-old from Tanzania.
