This could have been any one of us, or any one of our children who was falsely arrested, railroaded, and imprisioned. If we let this stand, who will be next?

Robert M. Purcell's comment, April 26, 8:48 PM
This is a sad, and rather disheartening practice, but it’s also disgusting. And then you look at it from the traditional side of things as something that was done for hundreds of years. Arranged marriages are nothing new in the world, and in fact if anything they are now something more antiquated than any other descriptive word. To marry a child to another person, whether their prospective spouse is another child, or someone older, is unconscionable in our society today, but it’s not the same elsewhere. Economic concerns for the parents are a factor, along with customs, tradition, and even some old societal rules that run afoul of the law. I still just can’t wrap my head around the idea, nor can I accept the traditions. It IS a human rights violation, and it puts these children in danger as well as any children they may become pregnant with.
