(CNN) -- A Saudi judge has refused for a second time to annul a marriage between an 8-year-old girl and a 47-year-old man, a relative of the girl told CNN.

The most recent ruling, in which the judge upheld his original verdict, was handed down Saturday in the Saudi city of Onaiza, where late last year the same judge rejected a petition from the girl's mother, who was seeking a divorce for her daughter.

The relative said the judge, Sheikh Habib Al-Habib, "stuck by his earlier verdict and insisted that the girl could petition the court for a divorce once she reached puberty." The family member, who requested anonymity, added that the mother will continue to pursue a divorce for her daughter.

The case, which has drawn criticism from local and international rights groups, came to light in December when al-Habib declined to annul the marriage on a legal technicality. The judge ruled the girl's mother -- who is separated from the girl's father -- was not the girl's legal guardian and therefore could not represent her in court, according to Abdullah al-Jutaili, the mother's lawyer.

The girl's father, according to the attorney, arranged the marriage in order to settle his debts with the man, who is "a close friend" of his. At the time of the initial verdict, the judge required the girl's husband to sign a pledge that he would not have sex with her until she reaches puberty, al-Jutaili told CNN. The judge ruled that when the girl reaches puberty, she will have the right to request a divorce by filing a petition with the court, the lawyer said.

And Robb was saying I would be first to critisize a Muslim killing the child in Tracy, Ca. What would the basis of this law in Saudi Arabia be from Robb?

Why are you guys upset about this? It's in the Bible, it's in the Torah, that is the Law of Jesus. Don't you still follow the same Laws that Jesus did? Oh yeah...Jesus made his own rules, but Paul's church changed them back for the church's use.

Reread the Torah and what it has to say about slavery of women, rape, etc. It is all in your Bible.

The basis of this law starts from the Law. Read it.

Oops, it was the Talmudic Law, not the Torah. Usually they just get married after they hit puberty, which for some girls is 8 years old. But, according to Talmudic law, a father can give her away before puberty.

posting.php?mode=quote&f=9&p=1961

The legal age for contracting a valid marriage is, according to the Talmudic Law, the age of puberty, which, in general is assumed to be the completed twelf year in females. A marriage conracted by minors under that age is void. An exception to this rule was made in former times in favor of a minor daughter. Her father could give her in marriage before her puberty, and this marriage was regarded perfectly valid.


Well, that's a start. I was trying to find the same books online I found earlier, but instead found even more interesting things. I love these tubes that bring us the interwebs. :D
