    I worked with a lad who was caned for being left-handed by his CofE school (circa 1970) does that condemn all Christians?

    New Saudi marriage contracts to ask the bride's age

    Saudi Arabian women in Riyadh (March 2009) The new measures have been welcomed by human rights activists

    Saudi Arabia has started issuing new marriage contracts that require the age of the bride to be given, in an attempt to stop underage girls from marrying.

    The kingdom had promised new measures after a series of high-profile cases involving young brides.

    Human rights groups have welcomed the new measures, saying clear-cut rules were needed to ensure underage girls were not harmed.

    Saudi Arabia has no law against child marriage.

    ...


    In February a 12-year-old girl decided to stay married to an 80-year-old man, after initially filing for divorce.

    A $22,600 (£14,174) dowry had been paid to her father just months before.

    In 2008, the case of an eight-year-old girl who was married to a 50-year-old man was revealed when the child's mother tried to annul the marriage.

    Defenders of child marriage say the practice is part of Saudi culture.

    Ah yes. This is the nub of it. Culture. Not "the religion of peace". Who here at RHP would question short shrift for 'defenders of child marriage'?

    you asked: "Who here at RHP would question short shrift for 'defenders of child marriage'?"

    there are around 181 players from Saudi Arabia at that link.

    if you are really interested in the answer to your question, a good strategy would be to start with this group.

    maybe the answer IS zero. still, why so optimistic?

    was your question "who is here defending beating child brides?", or was it "Who here at RHP would question short shrift for 'defenders of child marriage'?"

    Our muzzie fans don't want to know about things like that, nor the hanging of young girls in Iran for having had love affairs diaapproved of by their holy men following the precepts of that enlightened 'religion'.
