I'm disgusted by the parents of the boy and girl... Where the hell were they?? Times are different now.
I'm completely disgusted by the media. These children have no place on the front page of any newspaper. Where has their decency gone? In today's world these kids are going to need HELP not publicity and shame.
I was actually having that discussion with someone just yesterday about this. Back in the day, marrying and having children that young was the common thing to do. Had this happened years back, it wouldn't have been something to make the front cover of a newspaper.
