80 YEAR-OLD Muslim Woman Needs Dad's Permission to Get Married
Age.com/Yidwithlid ^ | 12/23/08 | Yidwithlid

Posted on 12/23/2008 9:46:31 AM PST by Shellybenoit

Here is another example of how the "Religion of Peace" treats its women. Setareh, an 80-year-old Iranian Muslim woman has never married, but one day her childhood sweet heart showed up and proposed. Sounds like a beautiful story right? Well she cant get married without her father's permission. And since her father abandoned her family 78 years ago, she doesn't know where he is or even if he is still ALIVE? More below:

Poor lady. People who make themselves slaves to the will of others refuse themselves the happiness they would otherwise deserve.

She needs to suffer. She had a childhood sweetheart. Obviously the slut should be stoned.

Let’s not be hasty here. I think Dads should have the final say..80 or 16

Well yes, there IS the small matter of the childhood “sweetheart”, which brings up her “harlotry” when she was younger, which DOES call for stoning.

But, she IS 80 years old. Maybe they can see their way clear to using very small rocks.

We all MUST remember that it’s Christianity, not Islam, that is the real danger to freedom...

There are devout people in all religions as there are those who are religious liberals. A lot goes on behind closed doors in Iran, not all follow the strict form of the religion, only those who are in complete control of the country are the religious fanatics. Sad state of affairs, from our point of view, but then again we are dealing with a different culture. Her father is most likely dead, they’ll get married, end of story.

Now now it is a religion of peace, love and enlightenment. These incidents (no matter how often they occur) just as the murders, bombings and beheadings, are only done by a small minority with the majority of muslims not believing in these things at all.

No matter what the Koran says.

Mohammed had the permission of Aisha’s father to marry.

Wonder how many of those who opposed prop 8 will bother to protest on behalf of these two adults who love each other.

This was taken from the article

"When I heard him proposing to me once again, I thanked God for the second chance because I had found another spur for the remaining days of my life."

She should thank God for one other thing; that her father, who abandoned her when she was two years old, is probably ONE DEAD SLUG by now.

There you go! Stoning... Sconing... what’s the difference, anyway?

One little letter can’t possibly upset the apple cart of Worldwide Islamic Intolerance all THAT much, can it? And it will make an old woman happy!

This reminds of my parents and their rule that if you brought home your girlfriend or even your fiancee (boyfriend/fiance for my sisters) you could not sleep in the same room. Only married couples were aloud to sleep in the same room together. Well, a number of years after my grandfather died my grandmother came for a visit with a gentleman friend. Were they going to let my dad’s mother be an exception to the rule?

I don’t find this story credible. It plays to our stereotype. We think its true because we like to believe it. The media does it with the Christians all the time. I remember reading a story about 30 years old christian couple who didn’t know that you need to have sex to have children or another story about a muslim man marrying another man because the other man was wearing a burka and he didn’t realize the other person was a man til after marriage. To me, these stories sounds like BS

I think that's a "scene" from the novel Catch-22, isn't it?

Oh, sure, ruin my fun!

How am I supposed to make JOKES about this story now that you’ve told us its not true?

You sure do know how to bring down a party.

I honestly don’t remember but I’m thinking they went ahead and let them sleep in the same bedroom. My parents actually mellowed quite a bit with age.

There's also a bit in the allegedly nonfiction book Everything You Wanted to Know About Sex (but Were Afraid to Ask) by "David Ruben MD" about an uneducated couple who thought the correct orifice was the woman's urethra. I don't believe that one at all-sounds like a 'medical student urban legend" IMO.
