Dad Cheats Daughter With 'Young Handsome' Groom
Emirates 24/7 ^ | Thursday, January 16, 2014

Girl flees home after discovering real groom is nearly 80 years old

Like in films, a Saudi father brought a young handsome man to his house and asked him to pose as a would-be groom for his 17-year-old daughter, who quickly agreed to marry him when she saw his face. After the marriage contract was finalized, the girl discovered that he father had cheated her as the real groom is nearly 80 years old.

As her father prepared his daughter to board a flight to travel to her husband in another city in the conservative Gulf Kingdom, she detracted his attention and fled home, heading straight to the police station.

The unnamed girl in the southern Saudi province of Jazan told police that her father deceived her when he brought a young man and asked him to pose as her suitor.

She said that after the couple were allowed to briefly see each other in line with Islamic law, she told her father that she agreed to marry this man.

“She told the police that after the marriage contract was finalized, she looked into it and was shocked to see that the husband’s age is around 80 years,” Sabq daily said.

“She said that her father intentionally brought a young handsome man so she will give her approval of the marriage in accordance with Shariah (Islamic law), which requires brides to agree to the marriage…she said that after she agreed to marry this man, her father bought the Maazoun (Sheikh) a few days later and finalized the marriage between her and the presumed young groom…she said it was all a game played by her father and that young man to marry her to an old man.”

The paper said the girl provided the police with tape recording of her father threatening her to travel to her “ageing” husband in the western Saudi town of Medina.

It quoted religious sources as saying the girl’s marriage could be terminated because it involved deception.”

I bet she tapped him on the shoulder and told him to “Look! That way!” as she pointed in the opposite direction.

He’ll probably be allowed to beat her with a stick for disobedience

So, in according to the Islams something can be terminated due to deception?

Almost nothing disproves the belief that Muslims wake up with lies and lie down with lies - even to their own children. What nice people.

I’m sure it was a large sum of cash, much larger than what he told his daughter.

The only way to negotiate with a Muslim or a Muslim country is from a position of overwhelming strength. Understand it world, these people are suckled on lies, it’s their “culture.” Obama and Kerry and lots who went before are enamored of the theory of kumbahyah “talking things out” as their approach. Obama does understand the Muslim mind, so we can only assume he’s on their side, not that of his own country.

There was a different kind of cheating in Genesis 29, when the groom was deceived by the father-in-law.

Have you noticed how rarely Muslims of any age smile, except when celebrating in groups after slaughtered someone?

“....as the real groom is nearly 80 years old.”

Daughter doesn’t know real fine wine from the dregs.

Sigh.

I’m surprised the father didn’t have her stoned for this dishonor.

Right.

King Abdullah is a conservative, the Iranian mullahs are conservative, Red China's ruling circle is conservative, and Vladimir Putin is conservative.

Guess I forgot to ask about Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir and Hassan Sheikh Mohamud of Somalia but somehow I doubt they are considered high-flying progressives either.
