They, the adults, must understand on some level



OIC.  then yes...I hope there is not too much of a backlash against her.   I believe some women might remember and even understand but what they gone do?  What can they do?  I believe tho for the most part that men and fathers give no fuccs.   Especially since when they married their mother she was most likely a child as well.

It's situations like these that help remind me of the power of culture and hopefully allow me to be more compassionate. I couldn't imagine a grown person even being attracted to a child in that manner...it just seems to go against anything natural. But that's just how strong culture is.

Reminds me that at the same time when I look at black people and some of our negative cultural attributes I need to be more understanding because culture is such a strong influence. It can make you do things that are so unnatural and so ridiculous.

Sad, so sad. Every year girls disappear here in the summer. This year they decided to do something about it. There are also safe houses so girls can runaway to a safe place to avoid forced marriage.

Yes, this is heart breaking. Really - such a beautiful child. I cannot imagine the brutality of some guy she is married off to .. raping and beating her again and again .. and yes even female members of her new household will beat her because that's what happened to them when they got married.
In many parts of the Middle East, India etc women douse themselves with gasoline and set themselves afire.Very, very common.
 
Her life is DEFINITELY in danger. Definitely. Her family has already made an arrangement with some old dude who will pay  x amount fopr her so if she runs away .. this brings 'dishonor' upon the family.
 
The only way to get their honor back is to kill this child. Kill. Make no mistake. Kill.
 
It has to be done so she needs to RUN like hell.
 
And yes, here in Europe girls from these cultures move here and get 'dissappeared' when they refuse to get married or they get send back to their home counties ... again, they are paid for.
 
A horrible life - which is why a lot of girls kill themselves.

Awwwww I want her! Cry How could anyone mistreat this child? I don't trust the uncle either. I want her adopted by someone in another country where she is safe from those sick people.

Children have it bad.  Their life depends on adults and adults are often unfit to run their own lives much less that of a child.  In many ways it is the fate of all children.  Amazing so many make it to adulthood.

My heart aches for her and all the children who are subjected to this type of insanity. May karma bless her for the rest of her life and I hope to hear about her professional strides and achievements in the future.
