Ten Year Old Will Be Fifteen When Marriage Is Consummated
Her husband will be sixty-nine. Lucky, lucky girl. Not! Honestly I cannot even fathom not having a choice about who you marry or having a father that basically sells you. Just too much for me... The man, "who has already paid a SR100,000 dowry to the father of the girl and signed the marriage contract now says he would wait until the girl is 15 to complete the marriage."
