    If it was an 8 year old girl and 61 year old man, people would be outraged.

    They got married because his grandfather (the woman`s husband) was dying and wanted to see his grandson get married before his death. The whole wedding was a gesture to grant the grandfathers dying wish. And like they said, no official documents were signed.

    What did I hear from liberals not long ago.. "That won`t happen.. no consent.. no slippery slope"

    Yeah, right. They`ll reply that this was only in Africa, but it won`t be long and it`ll start happening here.

    When you usurp the legal definition of marriage, there is no turning back and restricting others from abusing it.

    LOL @ CrakrJak - yes that`s a good arguement. Because USA has been desperatly to copy African culture. This is definately a result of gay marriage etc etc.

    Any thread you can cling to huh?

    @CrakrJak - You didn`t actually read the article, did you? If you did then you`d realize just how dumb your comment is.

    This was in South Africa, the boy`s grandfather was dying and had said he wished he`d get to see his grandson get married before he died. The marriage/wedding was just a show put on to grant his dying grandfather his wish. The marriage is not legally binding in any way, shape or form.

    Crakr, what makes your comment funny is because this is in a country that would NEVER allow gay marriage. So, it seems this is where heterosexual marriage leads us... time to ban that and move on with same-gender marriage!

    "if she has a husband then what/why?????"
    They said why, it`s Symbolic. Like when latinos dress their little girls up as "Brides of Christ" at catechism.

    Don`t try to make sens of religious ritual, it`ll drive you nuts.

    whodat: Apparently you are unaware that headlines shape people`s opinions and then opinions shape cultures.

    This headline seems shocking now, but they are only as shocking as gay marriage headlines were 30 years ago.

    The more crap like this get public attention the less shocking it gets, until the idea no longer shocks people at all.

    Need an example? look at 1950s and 60s horror movies. When they were made they truly were horrifying to people, now people watch them and laugh at how corny they seem.

    CrakrJak: I`ll give you another example. 50 or 60 years ago, inter-racial marriage was shocking as well.

    Crakr - Yes the public does get used to new ideas. Just look at the 50s, the idea of sharing a lunch counter with a colored person was horrific! But as you point out the population was desensitized to this. How awful!

    As for this specific young/old marriage - blame the media. World press used to take much longer, it wasn`t instant as it is now so although this sort of thing happened no one heard about it. I doubt this is something new the young/old crowd are trying to desensitize us to.

    Muhammad married Aisha at 6 years old not out of symbolism.

    I think the girl is too young if you have to make the airplane noise to get your penis in her mouth.

    It`s like a cheesy romance B movie for lifetime. Hitched for the holidays and holiday in handcuffs (loosely) use this premise.
