The German government had uncovered 1,500 cases of underage marriages in the unvetted migrants that they allowed in their country in the past two years. This surge in child marriages has happened in recent years and can be attributed to minors of a non-German background. Almost 400 of these minors are under the age of 14.
This is absolutely disgusting. Children should be allowed to go to school, educate themselves, and mature before being forced into marriage, which, at such a young age, might as well be classified as sexual abuse. Germany released a statement saying that this kind of behavior will “harm the natural development of minors” and the last thing we need is to turn out more mentally unstable Syrians!
Child brides is not socially acceptable in Western Culture, nor should it be acceptable anywhere. These immigrants have to learn to follow the rules of the countries where they settle.
From Gateway Pundit:
The German government agreed on a proposal Wednesday to outlaw child marriages after finding more than 1,500 cases of immigrant minors having adult spouses. The Central Register of Foreign Nationals has documented a surge in child marriages in recent years. As of July 2016, 1,500 minors of non-German background were registered as married, including 361 under the age of 14.
The largest group of child brides, 664 minors, come from Syria followed by Afghanistan and Iraq. “Children do not belong at the wedding altar, they belong in school,” Justice Minister Heiko Maas said Wednesday. “We cannot tolerate any marriages that might harm the natural development of minors.”
