The picture shown of Fatima, the preganant 14 yr old. Shows a beautiful unhappy girl. It almost looks as if she doesn't know what joy is.
I hope the people in charge took one look at her and offered her a chance to go to a womans shelter or something.
This is a sensible option. Automatically voiding someone's marriage from one country upon immigrating to a new one is a snowball zone. Offer the option for divorce, but leave it up to the wives entirely. It's not just about their age to them, it's a matter of support & family for them & their children. If they think they can carry on without the husband's support, then they should be allowed to do so. If they don't think they can,or don't WANT to, leave it be.
