I read this this morning as was quite sickened at the thought.
CNN) -- A group fighting for women's rights in Saudi Arabia condemned a judge Wednesday for refusing to annul the marriage of an 8-year-old girl to a 47-year-old man.
The group's co-founder, Wajeha al-Huwaider, told CNN that achieving human rights in the kingdom means standing against those who want to "keep us backward and in the dark ages."
Now in most other countries it would fall under child abuse.
Amazing how they use "marriage" as some legal form to abuse children. Sure they may not look at it like this but as a mother that's what I feel.
Don't take children's childhoods away they are short enough as it is.
