Comments on: Married as minors What makes a great picture? Thu, 18 Aug 2016 11:13:37 +0000 hourly 1 By: MAPK Wed, 30 Jan 2013 14:36:16 +0000 Danish – How can I send assistance to this young couple. I would love to see them get the right education they need to lift their family out of poverty. I’d like to send assistance for the baby. EVERY BABY deserves a good and comfortable life. They are just children themselves. Please post information on how to DIRECTLY help this couple.

Only the hundreds or more family members and friends in a country that knew civilization when western man was still swinging from the trees.
“Watching over” by the family is a whole lot less intrusive and more humanizing than our organized and chaotic means to maintain social order.

I can’t really comment on whether the practices of another country are agreeable or safe, “bad,” or loathsome.

What I see is a people happy and joyful, Their two children taking part in ceremonies
that seem designed to carry on some sacred traditions that lead to continuity and trust among people of faith.
Isn’t that good enough?

This story is well done with no bias shown by the photographer.

How about comparing the success of this young couple with the average first time wedded American couple? Looking at objectively verifiable measurements such as divorce and separation rates between the two groups. Does it seem possible that this couple may end up happier and more successful than their Western counterparts? The West has largely abandoned marriage and all durable male / female bonding. How is that working out? How about in Rajasthan?
