The devout Muslim men who marry these little girls in Yemen are following in the footsteps of Muhammad, whose favorite wife was six when he married her. Respect it! And now they’re streaming into the West with their child brides; apparently immigration officials thought it would be “islamophobic” to refuse their applications. And so they sentenced these girls to lives of pain, exploitation and misery. This is the future that the Democrat Party wants for your daughters. This is the America they envision, and that they are trying to force upon us by any means they possibly can.
“Girls as young as THREE are being married off in Yemen as starving families try to ensure they have one less mouth to feed – and use dowry payments to buy themselves food,” by Sara Malm, Mailonline, March 4, 2019 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
Girls as young as three are being married off in war-stricken Yemen because their families are unable to afford to feed them, according to charity Oxfam.
Starving Yemeni families have revealed how they have had no choice but to force their young daughters to marry much older men, in order to use the dowry for food and shelter to save the rest of the family.
The war in Yemen has triggered what the United Nation [sic] has called the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, with more than ten million people at risk of starvation.
A recent UN report suggests that more than two-thirds of girls in Yemen are wed before the age of 18, however the five-year conflict is reportedly forcing families to marry them off at a much younger age.
Oxfam said their representatives had met with families in the northern Amran governorate who had been forced to marry off their daughters – in one case as young as three years old – to buy food with the dowry.
Younger girls are usually spared consummating the marriage until they have reached the age of 11, but before that are made to do household work in their husband’s home.
Nine-year-old Hanan, from Amran, used to go to school but since she was married, she has had to stop.
‘My mother in law keeps beating me, and when I run away back to my father’s house, my father beats me again for running away,’ she said. ‘I don’t want to be married. I just want to go back to school.’
Hanan’s parents, who also married off her three-year-old sister, said they knew marrying off their daughters at such a young age was wrong, but felt they had no choice because the dowry paid in return was the only way of keeping the rest of the family alive….
