Recently married teenage couple, Vaguna Pokia, 19 and Puanini 17, who live with Puanini's parents, pose for their wedding photograph on the coral atoll of Funafuti. It's entirely normal for couples to marry young, live, and find support within the extended family. Vaguna's a government-employed stevedore and Puanini, unemployed. They are most likely to begin and enjoy a large family themselves very soon
