      This reminds me of 'what will people say' on Netflix. I'm sure this old style tradition of orthodox society will disappear one day, but the scares of people who have gone through unwillingly, will remain. Education is the only weapon to fight this evil.

      Held your own parents accountable for that. Make an example out of your parents who forced a little girl into a marriage at such vulnerable age.

      She said she had a crush on a boy at the age of 8 when she came back. Lets ignore everything for a second. Imagine she had crush on someone in Pakistan at that age. And fell in love with him by 10-12 years age and she wanna bring him to the States and the only way is by marrying, so i guess she would have to wait 6 more years. Oh wait she wanna get another bill signed to bring spouse not before 21 so thats around a decade wait time. 😂😂 smh Girl At least stand for the right cause, go against forced marriage, Educate people, Because girls even get forced marriage over 18 smh Dont mess up with American system, here in America marriage saves you tax money. 😂 Most importantly, Parents should be punished for forced marriage or whoever forces it and her own parents make it at the top of the list. Lastly, in Islam, you can never enter a marriage if its by force. Study islam before commenting on it. Islam never allows force married. Dont mix up culture with religion

      As a Muslim girl i need to point out how horrible and sick this is CHILD MARRIAGE AND FORCED MARRIAGE IS FORBIDDEN IN ISLAM. I got married to the man i chose and fell in love with at the age of 25 like all girls in my country.

      Islam. That’s the reason all these happen. When the most perfect man to all on earth, the man you need to imitate to reach Allah, gets married to a 6 year old girl and consummates the marriage when she is just 9…. She didn’t even get her period yet ! And the average age for marriage at the time was 12.
