(KGTV) - Did Kmart in Australia really pull its children's bridal costume after getting complaints it encourages child marriage?

Yes.

A mother in Australia was so upset by the costume she started a change.org petition to get it pulled.

The costume is aimed at children between the ages of 4 and 6. It includes a dress, headband, and veil.

Although the petition only got 179 signatures, Kmart Australia apologized and pulled the costume.

It is still being sold here in the U.S.
