    Saudi 11-year-old marries 10-year-old cousin: report

    RIYADH (AFP) An 11-year-old boy has married his 10-year-old cousin in the ultra-conservative Muslim kingdom of Saudi Arabia, a newspaper reported on Tuesday.

    Mohammed al-Rashidi and his unidentified cousin will seal the marriage they contracted under the sharia laws of Islam and move in together after a ceremony to take place in the summer, Al-Shams newspaper said.

    "I am ready for this marriage. It will help me study better," Mohammed, who goes to primary school in the northern province of Hail, was quoted as saying by Al-Shams.

    "I invite all my classmates to do like me," the boy said, adding that he wanted to "crown a love story through marriage".

    The schoolboy's father, Muraizak al-Rashidi, told the newspaper he was busy sending out invitations for a summer celebration to seal the marriage.

    Dahim al-Jaber, the headmaster at Mohammed's school, said marriage at such a young age was "inappropriate" but wished the couple a happy life together.

    Isn't the boy supposed to be at least 15 before he is allowed to marry?

    Yes, maybe in your Sharee'a that you legislate every week, but in the Sharee'a of Allah any consenting male and female can get married at any time but they can only have intercourse when they reach puberty.

    I believe that the girl has the option of nullifying the marriage once she attains the age of maturity, correct? And before she attains the age of puberty, the marriage remains mawqoof (suspended)? Not sure about it...just from what I remember...I may be wrong!
