Forcing little girls to marry so young is even happening in countries like the United States, isn't it?
Update: The way he treated her indicates his ownh frustration in having to marry an 8 year old. Since the laws are so strict, he might've even been a virgin himself.
Update 2: My point is that foreigners who come to a new country will change the laws as soon as there are enough of them to act as a voting bloc. This kind of crap may even happen here eventually.
Update 3: Gadget's dead wrong. If you pay attention to muslims living in First World countries, you'll notice how they keep trying to push their laws onto us. First comes the burkas, then the koran, then the forced marriages. Think about that.
Update 4: Additional question: Why didn't the mother and other female relatives fight a little harder for her?
