The civil registration office staff were shocked that the couple’s parents allowed them to get married.
In today’s society, couples are getting younger and younger. With this at hand, the number of teen pregnancy incidents have been gradually increasing in the past years. In worse occasions, children are also married off to older spouses as per allowed by their country.
However, in most countries around the world, seeing very young couples is something that isn’t widely accepted. Most parents would disapprove when seeing extremely young couples getting all touchy-feely with each other.
That is why staff at a civil registration office were raising eyebrows and shaking their heads when this couple came in and asked to have their marriage registered.
Naturally, the staff refused to do so, seeing how young the couple was. But when the couple showed their ID’s and identification documents, the staff were surprised but allowed them to get married soon after.
Apparently, the couple were both 20 and 22 years old and were both suffering from dwarfism. Causes of proportionate dwarfism include metabolic and hormonal disorders such as growth hormone deficiency. The girl’s height is only 130cm and her weight is less than 30kg which are almost the same as the boy’s height and weight.
They both met in a TV show and their relationship blossomed into something more serious until they agreed to build a marriage. According to the couple, walking around together raises many eyebrows. One reason may be because they look so young!
