There are no laws against child marriages in Saudi Arabia.
They do, however, mandate that for a marriage to take place, both parties must be in agreement.
The parents of a 15-year old Saudi teen married her off to a 90-year old for a dowry of $17,300. She was so terrified, she locked herself in her bedroom on the wedding night. She then fled to her parents’ home.
A human right’s group intervened and secured her divorce. Many Saudis expressed outrage. [Alarabiya]
This is just sick.
I saw his picture and thought of ET for some reason.
