The turbans are up in arms, some of them at least, accusing the government in interfering in God’s law and the Prophet’s by introducing a minimum age for marriage. Boys should wait until 18 while girls the minimum is 15. Otherwise the marriage cannot be legally recognised.
Well, why should there be a limit at all? If the girl can cut her own food then surely she should be bundled up in black and transported to the matrimonial bed – regardless of her wishes and the louder the screams for mummy to come help her while clutching her teddy bear to her immature chest the better. If she hadn’t started having her periods yet, well then, I suppose it should be regarded as training-time until she gets the capability of doing her honourable vocation and be a venerable breeding machine.
I wonder what would have happened if (God forbid) the government proposed (as it should have) to put the minimum normal marriage age at 18 for the couple?
How dare the government propose such an ungodly law?
