The case of a 12-year-old Saudi Arabian girl who successfully won a divorce from her 80-year-old husband could prompt the Arab kingdom to introduce a minimum marriage age, the Telegraph of London reports.

The girl was 11 when she was wed against her wishes to her father's cousin last year in an arranged marriage her home town of Buraidah, near the Saudi capital of Riyadh, Saudi's capital, the Telegraph reported Thursday. Her father was paid a $23,350 dowry.

The girl, with the help of a lawyer from the state-run Human Rights Commission, has been trying to get out of the marriage and took her case to court in Buraidah. She recently reached an agreement with her family, and the divorce will be settled privately rather than in the courts, the Telegraph reported.
Yes, age limits would be nice, eh?

I find it kinda sickening that a 12 year old is married to a 80 year old.. It's wrong on so many levels..

Old Muslims marrying children is very Islamic.

Muhammad was in his 50s when he married Aisha, his 6 year-old little girl bride.

She's going to be very upset if he croaks next week.

Why? I don't think she'd get anything. It would go to the nearest male relative.

I love how so many people become overnight Islamic scholars.
You don't have to be a scholar when dealing with common knowledge.
Muhammad was in a monogamous marriage for 25 years to a woman 14 years his senior. Arranged marriages are in many cultures throughout history and today. Plus, girls as young as 13 can get married to any aged man in the US.

Care to provide the statutes by state that support this?

All I found was this: Marriage Laws in the US by Age -- U.S. Teen Marriage License Laws

For the most part, marriages under the age of 16 require parental permission as well as a judge's approval. 13 year olds can't just haul off and get married when they feel like it.....unless you live in a compound in Utah perhaps.

No wonder the Mormons and right wingers like the Saudi's.

Never in history, anywhere, except in the pedophile world of Muhammad, has it been permissable for an adult man to marry a 6 year-old girl.

Even sicker, Muhammad confessed to dreaming about his 6 year-old wife when she was 5 years old. And, she was the yung daughter of his best friend, to boot.

In any language and any culture, this constitutes child molestation.

You just proved my statement so what are you asking for?

I rely on the Quran, the Hadith and the Sira.

Suck on it.
