All Religion and Marriage is Not the Same

An example from David Kotter:

Saudi marriage officiant Dr. Ahmad al-Mu'bi recently informed Lebanese television viewers that under law "there is no minimal age for entering marriage."  He added, "You can have a marriage contract even with a one-year-old girl, not to mention a girl of nine, seven, or eight."

Consummating the marriage would vary according to environment and traditions, according to Dr. Al-Mu'Bi.  He said, "The Prophet Mohammed is the model we follow.  He took ‘Aisha to be his wife when she was six, but he had sex with her only when she was nine."
