    90-year-old Saudi weds 15-year-old girl

    Report bad ads?

    The recent marriage of a 90-year-old Saudi man to a 15-year-old girl has sparked condemnation from human rights and social media activists in the kingdom.


    A member of the Saudi National Society for Human Rights (NSHR), urged authorities to intervene to save the child.
    On Twitter especially, activists criticized the parents of the girl for giving her to a man decades older than her.

    In an interview, the groom insisted that his marriage was “legal and correct,” and that he paid a $17,500 (SAR 65,000) dowry to marry the girl, who is the daughter of a Yemeni father and Saudi mother.

    The 90-year-old told the story of his first night with the bride. He said she entered the bedroom before him, and she locked the door from inside so he could not enter. This, he said, made him “suspicious about some kind of conspiracy” by the girl and her mother.

    He vowed to sue his in-laws to give him back the girl or return him the expensive dowry.

    Close friends of the bride’s family said she was frightened on the wedding night, and locked herself in the room for two successive days before fleeing back to her parents’ home.

    The member of the Saudi National Association for Human Rights (NSHR), Suhaila Zein al-Abedin, urged authorities to intervene “as soon as possible to save this child from tragedy.”

    Abedin noted that marriage in Islam must be based on mutual consent, and this was not satisfied, as demonstrated by the girl’s move to lock herself in the room.

    She said the girl’s parents were also to be held responsible for marrying their daughter to a man the age of her great grandfather.

    Abedin urged the establishment of a minimum age of 18 for marrying girls, saying this would pave the way for punishing violators, according to a report by al-Hayat newspaper.

    Jamal al-Toueiki, a psychologist, said forced marriage may subject girls to abuse and violence, and this could lead to their suicide if nothing is done to save them.

    Twitter reaction
    On Twitter, Mouhammad Khaled Alnuzha ‏@mkalnuzha, a legal expert, asked: “Is this a case of human trafficking crimes punishable by law?”

    ‏@sx84, who identifies himself as another legal expert, stated: "She is still considered as a product! A father sells his daughter without mercy, to be bought by money and status and power; all of it for the sake of fulfilling a desire.”

    Nawal Saad @lhnalkhlwd wrote on his account: “When people of reason and wisdom are asked to be silent and the ludicrous are set loose, we will see these anti-human behaviors.”

    Samira al-Ghamdi @SamiraAlGhamdi, a psychologist at a child protection center, wrote: “We need a law to penalize these acts … enough child abuse.”
    She added that the story of the child bride should be titled “A 90 years old ‘buys’ a girl … or : A father ‘sells’ his daughter…”

    74-year-old man charged with aggravated rape of 3-year-old
    NATALBANY, La. - A 74-year-old man has been arrested on charges of aggravated rape of a juvenile after police said several people witnessed him forcing himself upon a 3-year-old girl.

    The incident occurred Friday night.

    According to the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff, Daniel Edwards, Natalbany resident Lee Furlow was seen engaging in the illicit activity with the young girl.

    Edwards said Furlow confessed to the actions.

    Lancaster man jailed for raping four-year-old girl


    A 21-year-old man from Lancashire has been jailed indefinitely after he admitted raping a four-year-old girl.

    Police said Liam Ineson, of Ryelands Road, Lancaster, attacked the child between January and July this year.

    He pleaded guilty to rape and sexual activity with a child when he appeared at Preston Crown Court.

    Speaking after sentencing, Det Sgt Simon Coates said: "Ineson preyed on a young girl and then tried to make her keep the abuse a secret."

    He added: "He is a dangerous individual and the indeterminate sentence means he should not be released from prison until experts are satisfied that he no longer poses a threat to our community."

    Ineson's indeterminate sentence will not be reviewed for at least five years.

    Does sound like forced marriage. It would be horrible to be sold for sexual relations.

    Re: 90-year-old Saudi weds 15-year-old girl

    sadly now, people with have even more hate and belief that this practice is condoned by Islam. See the comments in the article I posted? sad, I get upset when I read the comments of negative stories that put Islam in a bad light. Then again, I shouldn't let ignorant people who have nothing better to do than sit at their computers talking garbage, get to me...

    Re: 90-year-old Saudi weds 15-year-old girl

    I dont see anything wrong with this, as long as no one was forced to marry.

    PPl who find this inhumane are screwed up in the head. Marrying a 15 year old as a 60/70/90 year old man and fulfilling wife's rights Islamically is WAY better than going out wth a 18 year old and committing zina with him and then subsequently aborting the fetus.

    Good day.

    That's just sick and disgusting...it's called pedophilia. You can't compare having premarital sex with pedophilia.

    Re: 90-year-old Saudi weds 15-year-old girl



    what's the minimum age for marriage in KSA ?

    Is she going to return back the dowry she got before marriage ? Else it will look like she / they did it for money.

    IF it's a force marriage , she contacted Police for help ? Asked relatives to stop the marriage ?

    now a days it's ok if u have sex without marriage . But when u pay dowry and fulfilll the condition of a valid marriage , it's called pedophilia ? How come ? If 2 parties agree on a marriage proposal , they why condemn the marriage ?

    In the article , no comment from the bride or her parents . They were against marriage and someone forced them ?

    No holy book mentioned about the age gap between wife and husband . Bible mentioned about marriage of David pbuh when he was 70 . Hindu religious law permits marriage of a young girl with aged person and it was common of such practicies in India subcontinent .

    now we became modern and accept everything that is prohibited by religion and against the matters lawful for us .

    If really the marriage was a forced marriage , then we all should condemn it . Let's wait for more info .

    No, I think premarital sex is wrong..but meant it's not on the same lvl of pedophilia. As for the article, my issue is not a 15 year old getting married, since we do not know if she agreed or was forced....it's the fact the dude is 70....That's sick, if he was 20 then ok...I would wait for facts before casting judgment.

    my granda pa took second wife when he was about 70 ( minimum 65 ) and was blessed with 2 sons . A famous writer in my country got married again when he was 60 + and became a proud father of 2 sons .

    Now u can't say one cant get married when he becomes old . If he needs a wife and law does not allow him , then he will go for sex without marriage and will be a sinner .

    I would wait for facts that qur'an and hadith forbid 70 years old "dude" to marry with 15 years old girl, before casting judgment.

    Oh it is fine for someone older to be married...they should marry someone their own age. The young girl would be forced to marry again when the old man dies...

    why? if hes 70, he has no more desire to be with a young woman and have children? A 20 yr old has more right to have a female companion and to fathr childrn? what justice and humanity!
