TEHRAN: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad urged young girls to marry at age of 16 in his latest rejection of the country's once effective family planning program, local newspapers reported on Sunday.
Following record birth rates in the wake of the 1979 Islamic revolution, Iran implemented an internationally praised family planning program in the 1990s that dramatically reduced the growth rate. Ahmadinejad has criticized the program as an ungodly and a Western import.
"We should take the age of marriage for boys to 20 and for girls to about 16 and 17," he said, according to the state-owned Jam-e Jam daily. "The marriage age for boys has reached 26 and for girls to 24, and there is no reason for this."
Since coming to power in 2005, the Iranian president has sought to increase of the country's population, which is already at 75 million, with a third between the ages of 15 and 30.

Iranian President Ahmadinejad urges 16 girls to marry one man
He still has thousands of plastic pink keys to paradise to give the cute little martyrs.
I have noticed in my travels all over the world that the women of mixed race tend to be the most beautiful in the country.
The more varied the combined DNA information the better the chance of healthier offspring and healthier offspring tend to be more attractive.
I.D. at it's best.
16 ..too old..I thought 9 was considered a proper marrying age in Muslim countries.
Thank you for that most interesting and no doubt accurate explanation of the phenomenon.
Anglo-Indians, Cape Colored, Malay-Chinese and a host of other mixtures do seem to have a tendency toward physical perfection in abundance.
Nor do Itho-liberian-caucasoid nibblits.
Did the law consider 6 underage at the time ?
I think Sharia law did say to wait until the ripe old age of 9. Sick.
