The Legal Age Of Consent In Saudi Arabia Is....Drum Roll Please...


"Call it marriage, Islamic style.

Saudi marriage officiant Dr. Ahmad al-Mu’bi told Lebanese television viewers last week that it’s permissible for girls as young as 1 to marry — as long as sex is postponed."

Well then. How long should sex be postponed?

“You can have a marriage contract even with a 1-year-old girl, not to mention a girl of 9, 7 or 8,” he said. “But is the girl ready for sex or not?” What is the appropriate age for sex for the first time? This varies according to environment and tradition,” al-Mu’bi said."

In other words, as young as you want 'em to be.

"Mohammed himself married and had sex with a 9 year old. It's right there in their unholy book." You're apparently ignorant of the facts regarding the age of consent in the United States prior to 1880 and from 1880 to 1920.

The age of consent in the state of Delaware from 1880 to 1920 was 7 years old. An American male in the state of Delaware could marry and have sex with a 7 year old girl prior to 1920. The age of consent in 27 US states during this period was 10 years of age while 12 states recognized the age of consent at 12.

I have the birth certificates for my grandmother and my mother. Both women were born in Gadsden, Alabama. My grandmother was born in March 1914. My mother was born in September 1927. The difference in age is 13 years, 9 months. Given a 9 month pregnancy, my grandmother would have been about 12 years, 9 months old at the time of conception.

Since the age of consent in the state of Alabama in 1914 was 10 years of age, there it was legal for a 12 year old to marry and conceive a child in 1914.

Besides this being a posting over 2 years old, what does the age of consent in America or Mars even have to do with what is correct or incorrect?

Yes, children should not be married. So what's your point? That since others did horrible things dirty old Mohamed could do so too?

You're an incredible idiot that I do believe must be a pedophile at heart.

Ameliorating a terrible wrong by saying that others have done wrong as well is not only sophomoric but in this case disgusting.
