    Did you notice the part where the reason the judge wouldn't annul the marriage is because the child's MOTHER requested it and she isn't considered the "legal guardian" of the child?

    Sure Islam has huge respect for women.... :cuckoo:

    Oh come on people; we have to learn to accept the ways of other cultures. It important to understand that these are normal people who just view things a bit differently than us. Don't worry that they might want to force their ass backward ways upon us sometime down the road. Let's just be friends. :cuckoo:

    I did see that and disgusted me as well. All the more reason why church and state should and need to be seperated.

    Well, I made sure that the father was on my side before I committed statutory rape. And of course I waited until she could at least pass to get into the bars. They really need to rethink their customs over there.

    Jewish women
    The Role of Orthodox Jewish Women
    By Adherents.com

    It is no secret that orthodox Jewish women have different rules set forth than other Jewish women. Those who live an orthodox life work to fulfill what they believe to be the pure teachings of their religion. Because of that, they adapt their lives to those teachings. They follow a strict code and most parts of their lives are structured.

    One of the most important rules for orthodox Jewish women is they must wear modest clothing. In most cases, girls and women wear long skirts and avoid pants. Also, many orthodox women cover their hair. They can do that with a wig or a scarf.

    There are also rules of family purity orthodox Jewish women must follow. They cannot have contact with their husbands while they are menstruating, or for seven days after menstruation has stopped. This is something that is strictly believed, as the women are not clean while they are menstruating.

    Women are also not allowed to have a voice in the orthodox rabbinical court. This has led to some problems in the court systems, as women are sometimes left without a voice when they need one.

    While there are strict rules for women who are part of the orthodox faith, they have been given much more freedom in recent years. Now, they have more educational opportunities than ever before. It has been decided they should be able to get the quality of education they would get if they were not orthodox.

    There has been talk about expanding the changes for orthodox Jewish women past educational opportunities. However, many of those talks have stalled due to steadfast opponents. There has been a great debate over whether or not women should be granted more rights since society is changing. It is expected that new rights will slowly trickle down to the orthodox women, but it will not happen as fast as it has for other Jewish women.

    The roles of orthodox Jewish women are always going to be different than the roles of other Jewish women. The orthodox ideologies have more rules, and there are different expectations. However, orthodox Jewish women have experienced some changes over the years, and changes will likely continue, even if they are in a slow fashion.

    Most of the Middle East - and Saudi Arabia in particular - has got to be the most screwed up place in the world, in you are not a man!! This dumba$$ judge believes that its ok for the 8-year old girl to be married, but she does not have the capability to file for divorce!!! How come the US government does not speak out against pedophilia!?!!?!?!?!?!?? Yet another reason to become energy-independent!
