    Yemeni child bride fights for divorce

    Yemeni child bride fights for divorce
    Tuesday, 5 January 2010

    Yemeni schoolgirl Nujood was divorced by the age of 10 having been married to a man of 30 when she was only nine. As the BBC's Owen Bennett-Jones heard when he met Nujood and her parents in the Yemeni capital Sanaa, she took her fate into her own hands, getting the divorce herself.



    Nujood managed to break out of a forced marriage and get back to school


    She had not even known she was to be married on the day of her wedding.

    With her father's consent, she was brought by her future husband to his village where his family laid on a big ceremony.

    Afterwards, when she saw everyone leaving, she wanted them to drive her back home but was told by her new husband that she was married.

    After less than a week in the new village, which she spent doing household chores, her tearful pleas to the husband's family persuaded them to bring her back to her parents.

    She told her father that she wanted to finish school but he refused to allow this and said she must return to her new home.

    Two attempts to run away, hiding in her uncles' houses, failed when her father, husband and brothers came looking for her.

    Getting to court

    On the night before she was due to go back, her stepmother advised her to file for divorce at a court and that is where she went the next morning.

    She took advantage of the absence of her father, her mother, her stepmother and her elder brothers to take a bus and a taxi to the court.


    Nujood says she hopes to go to university

    A woman at the gate listened to her story and took her into the judge's office.

    She told him that she wanted a divorce and that she wanted to finish school and stay with her family.

    The judge took her home to his own house and family where she stayed for three days, being treated kindly.

    He then sent her with an escort to her parents' house. Her parents were not in but one of her sisters passed on the message that she had gone to court for a divorce.

    One of her uncles came to the court to collect her.

    After her father and her new husband came to the court themselves, they were arrested and sentenced to 10 days and 15 days in prison respectively.

    A few weeks later, the judge granted the divorce. Her husband was led into the court for the ruling but said nothing to her.

    Nujood has been living at home again since the divorce. She is going to school again and hopes to attend university.

    why is it that when a man is caught fucking a 10 year old there are shouts of hang the bastard up by his balls, throw away the key etc etc, but when it's a Muslim pedophile the same people say nothing?

    You are correct on all three points,
    What type of islam is this sharia, shiites or another branch ?, which ever it is, it does not sit well with the majority of the worlds poulation, and should be encouraged to cease don't you think.

    The girl is lucky she's not from Pakistan or she would have her face disfigured with acid.

    I hate working close to the Yemen border, The fukers come over and steal our pickups. as well as hijacked a few at gun point. My aussie mate was kidnaped after he crossed the border from oman into Yemen but let him go after a few days.
    Even woarst was when they shot a Americian rig manager and mechanic for no reason just some crazy fuk. They all carry guns and spend most their time high on gat.
    The fukers tried to take over oman in the 70s but the 10 SAS solders managed to hold them back.
    I dont think it would take much to take over the country

    I think you mean Nadia and Zana Muhsen, If you are interested there is a book called 'A promise to Nadia' published by Little, Brown and Company ISBN 0-316-85230-9
    I cannot say too much about this as was involved in trying to get them/Nadia out of Yemen. Excellent read,very sad story. It also shows how difficult and perhaps impossible it is for Western negotiators to operate in these countries.

    With regards to the remarks you left me in rep.

    Obviously my comment was to difficult for you to understand. But as you have made a comment to ItsRobsLife which i agree with, i will explain.

    This kind of media news, despite how shocking, is designed for the useful idiots and their comments such a RL to react to, in particular after the recent staged terror in the hope of the US justifying and gaining public support for more invasions.

    I wonder how much horrific shit we can dig out from our own backyard?
    You bullied, you laughed, you lied, you lost!

    I wonder what the insect said? I bet 10,000 baht he's not condemning sick islamic sex abuse of children but just attacking another poster-am I right?

    It is actually quite amusing, watching the ignorant criticizing the ignorant. I guess in Yemen they may actually be excused for being bigoted and uninformed, but in the west it is more of a personal choice!

    Ah thanks for that just as I thought. Are you saying there are sex abusers of kids in Yemen due to them being bigoted and uniformed? Maybe they should read this forum
