    Where the idea came from is apparently not clear - a trip to Italy, or a TV documentary on Keyna ?

      I'm sorry.....but this is cute and funny all at the same time. For two kids as young as that to imagine that they could just get on a train/plane and go to Africa to get married. All because of a TV show. I'm surprised they made it as far as they did. If I saw three kids walking down the road that early in the morning.....I would call the cops immediatly.

        Too cute...and way too scary.
        Something along these lines happened in Virginia - a 6 yr old missed the bus to school so he decided to take the car....himself!! He crashed the car & luckily was not hurt. His mom was in bed...why was she not up sending her little one off to school Daily Dispatch Online

          That is a cute story. Little kids and their big imaginations. I love the part where they say they didn't tell their parents because "they didn't think they would be gone long!" Haha.

          Just think if we had married the boys we "loved" at age 6-7 YIKES! (For me anyway )

            Such a cute story, but really frightening as a parent

              That's crazy. I don't think I was savvy enough at that age to even attempt to make it to the airport!

              Kinda cute story but definitely scary! I thought you only had to worry about teenagers sneaking out in the middle of the night, apparently they can start much younger than that!

              It would be an awesome story though, if they one day did actually get married. They could tell their children about their original attempt at exchanging vows.

                That is just way too cute. Luckily though, they were caught by the police. I love how they were disappointed so the police gave them a tour of the jail house, that is just adorable.
