Which technically makes me the marrying kind thanks to sporting a dark mane. But so does practically EVERYONE in Asia.
I don't think that was the case though in this Pakistani wedding. Yes, the bride was a brunette, but she was also 4-years old.
The police were able to break up the arranged marriage between the toddler bride and her 7-year old supposed husband to be.
Sure, Islamic law allows girls to marry after they hit puberty, but dude, I doubt your 4-year old kid even knows what menstruation is. I know every culture has their quirks, but I just find this disturbing (not that men prefer brunettes) how the kids were forced to marry. Let them be kids first!
And I thought my great aunt was crazy to get married at 16!!! I guess this supposed marriage blows all those young Hollywood marriages out of the water. Still, I can't help but feel bad for the kids.
