Child Bride

Yemen Post:

Just weeks after the country was shocked to hear about Nujood, the 8-year-old bride, who demanded the court to divorce her from her husband, today comes a much shameful case, as Arwa, a 7-year-old girl got married to a 35-year-old man in Ibb governorate.

The disapproval of such a practice and religious criticism are linked. One cannot abolish the practice without taking on the ugly legacy of Islam.

You have to really devalue women in order to justify putting your daughter in this situation. It's interesting to note that this sort of thing has only been a somewhat common occurrence in Islamic countries.
