Big Fat Gypsy Weddings Episode 3 in Pictures!
The third in the series of Big Fat Gypsy weddings is all about right from birth, life is pretty well mapped out for traveller children.
Girls stop going to school around the age of 11 (it’s shameful to continue, explains one mother), spend the next few years learning to clean and care for children, and then get married around 16 or 17. Boys stop school early, too, but don’t do cleaning (that’s considered “gay” says another mum). Instead they work alongside their dads. Kids as young as seven can handle a digger truck as well as the next man.
