    Update on story:

    BBC NEWS | World | Middle East | Saudis 'to regulate' child brides

    Saudi Arabia says it plans to start regulating the marriage of young girls, amid controversy over a union between a 60-year-old man and a girl of eight.

    A court in Unaiza upheld the marriage on condition the groom does not have sex with her until she reaches puberty.

    Justice Minister Muhammad Issa said his ministry wanted to put an end to the "arbitrary" way in which parents and guardians can marry off underage girls.

    But he did not suggest the practice would be abolished.

    Human-rights groups oppose such marriages, which they say are often motivated by poverty.

    Saudi Arabia implements an austere form of Sunni Islam that bans free association between the sexes and gives fathers the right to wed their children to whomever they deem fit.

    It's a human rights issue and unfortunately any society that discriminates and abuses women will also violate the human rights of children. The women need to earn 1st class citizenship and respect first and then they turn around and demand the same for the children. The only solution to this problem is that the women be freed. It is virtually impossible to protect any children when women are viewed as the lesser sex.

    The only way to make this happen is to force Islam out of government.

    While Islam interferes in the government, children will be raped, women will be abused, and people will be stoned to death because some Imam asshole says doing so is holy.

    Theocracy is a crime against humanity.

    The judge and the groom both need to be executed.

    Then their beards need to be forcibly removed and they need to be bathed in pig's blood and then burned.

    Disgusting Saudi ****bags!

    Agreed. It's unlikely Islam will evolve towards equality of the sexes. Even Catholicism is still a male dominated patriarchal system. When people aren't governed by these religious forces the churches loose respect and power which in turn pressures them to evolve a bit or risk irrelevancy. Allowing religious powers to govern however has the complete opposite effect.

    Only the Muslim 10%! We will then smear their blood on our faces and dance around the bonfire that consumes their bodies! All hail our civilization!

    In India children are marrying children. While disturbing ... it this isn't as disgusting as a 47 year-old man marrying an 8 year-old girl.

    I have to seriously ask here Vader.

    you are supportive of ousting Chavez, North Korean's leader, Russian's leader, Iran's leader, Pakistan's leader, where the hell do you expect this to come from?

    I mean seriously, where are you expecting this man power to come from? You want to overthrow practically everyone that isn't an ally of the U.S.

    No offense, but your suggestions are nothing but madness.

    For once I agree with you. Sometimes I'm tempted to wonder if Vader is actually serious when he talks this complete and utter ****.
