i read this horrible article in qabas about this child marriage in ghaza - the above couple, ahmed 15 years old and tala 14 got married to escape poverty, believing that marriage and kids will swing the doors of opportunities wide open!!
ahmed & tala come from a very poor family, they are cousins and live from trash collection - is it ignorance, lack of education, poverty, lack of intelligence or a combination of all the previous that make people take such decisions? it really beats me.. i've seen poor people taking sound and wise decisions, not sure what this couple is really up to!
good luck to ahmed and tala, i hope this marriage will open the doors of opportunities for you, my advice is to push the brakes on getting kids, a child cannot raise another child.
