“In every community, race, ethnicity, we are all individuals. You wouldn’t do that to a different ethnic group, so it shouldn’t be okay to do that with travelers.

Speaking from their home in St Albans, Lizzie said: “We have been here for almost ten years and we do not travel.

The couple have great popularity on social media where they share stories about the lives of travelers.

In a video on the platform, Caitlin revealed, “I feel like one in every 100 female travelers actually has a job and is going to work because she mostly leaves it to husbands.

“But it’s more common to get married as a teenager. And it all depends on when you meet them.

“Some get married two months after knowing them, or five years after knowing them. You can’t put a person’s time.

When she gets married, Caitlin will be allowed to go on vacation for the first time without her parents.

In a video, she explained, “I finished elementary school, high school, I’m in college right now, I finished all of my GCSES.

“Some will go to school, some will not, but it is more common for them not to go to school.

“I think it depends on the family if they want to send them to school. Most likely not, as this is not the line of work that the boys or girls of travelers choose.

The sister has previously said that she will not be living with a man until they get married and will name their first son and daughter after their husband’s parents.
