    This is child abuse.This shows that in some Islamic rich men common sense has taken a flight. If you want to marry as many wives as you want, must that wife be a child? an underage for that matter.

      One of the kings in Nigeria that visited UK few month ago has wives, too. His last wife is teenager or 18yrs old. You don’t have problem with that right because he isnt muslim?

    Quran says…

    “Marry women of your choice, two, or three, or four; but if ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one.” [Al-Qur’an 4:3]

    Lots of kings the world over marry young girls everyday. People only have problems with this when they are muslims. Oyo is one such good example. Moreso, its a kind of cultural thing.

    Funniest is if them marrying young is what will solge the uncountable number of teenage pregnancies nowadays, isn’t that better. All focuses have been on stopping child marriages. Isn’t child abuse and pregancy a more attention deserving matter? And marrying a 17 year old girl is definitely not child ab use.

    Kings in China,Southkorea,Ghana to mention a few marry young girls. It becomes something else only when it is done against the girl’s wish which Islam and all other religions do not support. And its a cultural thing here that has been happening ages ago. Only Wannabe westerners complain about this.

    Guys will come here and condemn People for marrying young girls and more than a wife. Yet 99% of them have concubines, some younger than the girls in discussion. God’s watching.

    Let he who is without sin be the first to cast the stone. What guy here can swear before d almighty that he has only one faithful partner, or has never cheated on his wife or girlfriend.
