Saudi Arabia mulls minimum age for marriage

That Aiisha dilemma: since Muhammad was the perfect man and every Muhammedan is religiously obliged to emulate him, child-marriage will be with us for as long as Islam is allowed to exist.

Saudi Arabia mulls minimum age for marriage

The Elder of Zion

The good news: 

A new law on child marriage from the Ministry of Justice which currently has the issue under study may set the legal age of marriage at 18 while also imposing greater restrictions on persons permitted to authorize the marriage of minors.

OK, the two clauses are slightly contradictory but any way you look at it, the number of sickening marriages of pre-teens to men triple their age in Saudi Arabia would be reduced.

The bad news:

Lawyer Adnan Al-Zahrani was quoted as saying in the report that guardians – thefathers – were permitted to marry off a minor of either sex and could contract marriage for their daughters even at the age of one. Al-Zahrani said that when girls reached the age of puberty they were permitted to choose whether to accept or reject a marriage contract.

At the age of ONE???

  1. Why wait till they’r e one – it’s all flesh .
    You’ve heard of ‘thighing’ no doubt ?
    You’ll get no reaction from the other party but you don’t get any out of your wife if you only care about your own pleasure anyway .
    It’s all enjoyable – well, if you’re a certain type – which one ? – of person
