    Looks like there is some division in Saudi Arabia over this, and there is some push to move the legal age all the way up to 18.

    Not if those cultures encourage things like child abuse and the brutal killing of people accused of being gay. There are many cultures that openly do this and its disgusting that theyre allowed to get away with it.

    It's so wrong on so many levels... but that's my view. Obviously they view it differently in Saudi Arabia.

    Refuse/reduce trade or aide is an alternative to invasion.

    Well, maybe the little woman was smarter and knew more than her husband.

    all people ARE the same...

    the cultures may vary (wildly in this case) but they still bleed, breathe, cry and laugh the same...

    true enough, but how many people have My Little Pony themed weddings? when you confuse the bride for the flower girl things have gone terribly wrong.
