Soon to be demand in the US since it only "fair" and about "love."

My granddaughters played with their Barbie Dolls at that age, and demanded Hannah Montana toys. I wonder if the Iranian husbands would play tea party with their wives? /s

Do yourself a favor and don't think about what they'd do.

Just another punch to this gut.....the world is getting sicker and sicker.

It deserves everything God has in store for it.

Am so sick and tired of this crap.

girls as young as 10-years old would now be allowed to marry

"Allowed" implies a knowing, voluntary choice on the part of those 10-year olds, something that is simply not possible.  This is, no doubt, one of the fig leaves these folks adopt to disguise from themselves the fact that they're engaged in the sexual abuse/exploitation of children.  It makes the cognitive dissonance a little less painful.

Me too, DC.

Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

No doubt honoring the pedophile from Mecca who married a nine year old after lusting after her for three years.  :thud:

Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really!.....

6 or 7 when they were betrothed. Aisha - a pretty name.

Since it was after the death of his first wife, Mohammed was at least 30 at the time, more likely much older.

Yep. Her name was Ayisha, I believe. And at nine, she became his favorite bride. But it's all right. Gabriel gave him the OK from God.  **nononono*
