    Police Investigate California Girl's Claim She Was Forced Into Arranged Marriage in Pakistan - FoxNews.com

    Theories? Do you believe the mother or the teen? This sounds like a Lifetime Movie, doesn't it?

    Okay, first of all . . . the mother lied to the authorities.

    Second, they were planning to spend one or two months maybe over in Pakistan on 'vacation'. That's where I'd take my 13-year old daughter for vacation.

    Third, how many American 13-year olds know what an arranged marriage is . . . let alone care.

    The mother is full of it.

    jck, I have to agree with you completely. The mother's story changing and the term "arranged marriage" being used by a 13 year old ate both key signs to me that the girl is telling the truth. Especially as the validity of her mother's marriage to this guy from Pakistan is now apparently up for discussion as well.

    The girl sounds more honest than her mom.

    Of course, getting a passport for her would be pretty much impossible. Unless the bio dad is incarcerated or in some other way she has total control, there have to be two signatures on the passport app, and there have to be notarized letters from both parents that she is even allowed out of country

    I believe the daughter.

    I truly hope they investigate this fully. If they find supporting evidence i hope that both of the "parents" are charged with attempted international sex slave trafficking.

    Seriously, what mother is going to take her school aged daughter on a two month vacation in the middle of the school year? I think they need to look into trafficking charges against the mom.

    Both of you should be ashamed by your inability to embrase multiculturalism.
