Married at nine

I’ve heard it from different sources that humans marry at age nine. This made no sense to me until I realized that the wedding isn’t the marriage, it is the solemnization of a marriage.
And, come to think of it, my childhood sweetheart gave me a big pain in the 4th grade so I’m calling that my first marriage. I think he was looking for security, something women have always been accused of doing when looking to marry. Does this ring a bell to any of you?

I was infatuated with someone in third grade and fifth grade. My fifth grade boyfriend gave me a ring. He was very popular with the ladies later. I sent him an email on facebook once and then felt really stupid, because I didn’t get to know him that well.

I hate that when I guy makes me feel stupid but it happens all the time to me.

My nan got engaged at 4, married at 12. :confused:

Obviously an arranged marriage, n’est ce pas?

Not sure why she gets all happy about it… but yeah

A lot of societies still believe in marriages being arranged by the parents.

In pakistan, some children at the age of 10 marry much older men

Marry in haste, repent at leisure.

On my days off I like to sleep in. Can we make it eleven-thirty instead?

Getting married on your day off because you’re off your rocker.

Well, that’s inappropriate. I hope the children are female at least.

Can’t you repeat yourself?

Yeah its a terrible thing, i saw on bbc that it still happens in some parts of pakistan

It happens in a lot of places outside of that country too. Unfortunately.

In some cultures girls are considered adult at age 9 and can be married.
