Child bride rates soar among Syrians living in Jordanian exile

Married at 15 and divorced at 16, a Syrian teen says she regrets having said yes to a handsome suitor — a stranger who turned into an abusive husband.

Yet the reasons that transformed her into a child bride have become more prevalent among Syrians who live in Jordanian exile because of a six-year-old civil war back home. More families marry off daughters to ease the financial burden or say marriage is the way to protect the “honour” of girls seen as vulnerable outside their homeland.

    She offered her honor.

    He honored her offer.

    And every night he was on her and off her.

    Dunno. Age 15, 16 is a wobbler. We call black girls who get ‘married’ and pregnant ‘heroes’ on NPR and whatnot as long as there’s some kind of totebag-worthy backstory.

    If you’re in a refugee camp, you’ve got bigger things to worry about than “honour.”

    We should all have child brides. Its only fair. Everyone find a liberal neighbor and go over to their home and demand their daughter. Tell them if they object, then as infidels they will have to be thrown off a roof.

    This is why I predict that Justin will legalize some form of pedophilia to appease the muslim population during the 2019 Election campaign. He will tour the radical pro-sharia mosques linked to his pro-Sharia muslims MP’s to go after their votes no matter how many little girls get RAPED.

    He’s a feminists don’t you know.
