Talk about alimony at an eraly age, huh?


In a case that could spur the kingdom of Saudi Arabia to set minimum age limits for marriage, a girl who was wed at age 11 to an 80-year-old man has been granted a divorce.

I doubt the little girl with receive any alimony.
$22,000 isnt a bad price for a virgin slave child for a year.

On the other hand, whenever you have a marriage between an 11 year-old and an 80-year-old, there is a silver lining: probably the best way for a woman to be in that society is a rich widow. Luckily, with an 80 year-old husband, the wait isn't likely to be long.

I'm not so sure about that. In societies like that, a women "needs" to be in a male-run household, can't travel without a male that is not family or husband. There is no "merry widow" scenario that I am aware of in Muslim countries.

He problably fondled her then bragged that he made passionate love to her to his fellow senior citizen friends.
