Jitu & Rehana – an interfaith (Hindu-Muslim) couple live in a town called Rajkot in western India.
They defied their families, put aside religious differences and got
married during a very turbulent time.
In an Indian wedding, the bride and the groom take seven vows but
they took eight vows; the eighth was not to have their own
children. In India, where 99% of the time, the sole purpose of
getting married is procreation, this was a very bold decision.
-Every eighth urban child in India lives in slums.
-Urban poverty forces almost 12 per cent of Indian children between
the ages of 5 and 14 into labor.
-Most will never hold a book or see the inside of a school.
Jitu-Rehana got married to challenge the system and change this.
They got ‘MARRIED FOR A CAUSE’!
