How sad for those lil girls... and how disgusting that this is permitted. This is totally unacceptable to our present culture... but there was a time that even here in the U.S. that 10 year olds were permitted to marry... I remember my great-grandmother talking about it.
I feel so sad for those lil girls...
A Lil Enchanted,

did you see this link:
you can see in the picture several of the men do NOT have young girls walking with them. I hope it's true that the young girls are NOT the brides
Thank you for your comment, yes there was a time long long time ago that young girls would marry.
Thank you for your input, I looked for something that denied this but couldn't find it then. You are right some of the men walk by themselves. What made me question the news from the beginning was that the girls were not wearing any he-jab (scarves), but lots of makeup. This is not normal in Islamic world, when a girl reaches puberty they should wear make up. This could be another sign that the girls are not brides, I sure hope so. Although even after I write these words, I have doubts and that's because, I have first hand experience when my grade school friend at the age of 13 dropped out of school to get married. Well she was 13 right?
That is very upsetting if this story is true. Just because a girl's body reaches puberty should in no way imply that she has the mental maturity to handle all that goes along with a marriage. Sickening.
I am repulsed beyond words. This makes my skin crawl, and while there was a time when with life expediences being shorter women/girls married younger, they were NOT herded like a cattle in a large group of hundreds to marry men their fathers age without their consent. There were differences.
There were arranged marriages yes, between families; but nothing even remotely as sickening as this.
Sick, Sick, Sick. These girls have been brain washed, and the men involved in this...their fathers, older brothers etc. should be ashamed.
Interesting how this story is not landing on any of the major news websites (NY Times, Time Magazine, CNN, Fox News...etc.)....could it be that we are missing something here....i.e. the little girls are not the brides to be, and if anyone understands arabic, they will realize they are the relatives of the bride/groom hoping to one day be a future bride themselves........I love how things can be taken out of context simply because of your personal hatred towards these people
@ Wake up people. Thank you for your comment and I wish you had left your name. Your comment made me read my article repeatedly to see how I implied I hate anyone or anything. Hatred is a big word, yes, we as humans like or dislike something but to hate? I don
