Morocco to change law allowing rapists to marry underage victims

By aidemzo_adanac ·

Title is slightly misleading as it could mean the law now allows rapists to marry underage victims, however that has been in place for many years already, in 2004 it was amended so that each party's family AND the victim would have to agree to the marriage, to spare the family the shame (the family not the victim, gotta focus on what's important after all!). However there have been a few instances where the judge forced the union himself, despite arguments from both sides against it. Parents of **** victims would often agree to marriage because they were scared the daughter would never find a suited mate if she had been raped (again, men punishing the victim for the assault).

To think such a law would have been altered and not removed entirely, just 4 years ago is a bit of a shocker too. Today, Morocco is finally waking up and realizing they have old, traditional laws in place that are now changed due to last year's suicide of teen victim, Amina al-Filali, who poisoned herself to escape the marriage she was forced into with her rapist.

The law also allowed a rapist complete freedom if he married his victim. Now, I don't think that would work well and it seems to have taken a long time for them to realize it. Think, if you were a loser with no hope of ever marrying a beautiful woman, why not just go and **** a cute, young girl/woman and you will not only be let off the hook but you could force her into marrying you too! I can only imagine what it would be like if they did that here, especially with so many hot movie stars and female artists in the charts. Seriously, take you pick and you'll not only be set free but you can force her to marry you too....come to think of it, maybe Kevin Federline had heard this before too.

"In 550 cases of the corruption of minors between 2009 and 2010, only seven were married under Article 475 of the penal code" I wonder why someone that had committed such a heinous crime would accept punishment instead? So I looked into what the punishment was. The penalty for **** is between five and 10 years in prison, but rises to 10 to 20 in the case of a minor. Wow, one minute you **** her and the next you take up to 20 years in a Moroccan prison as opposed to marrying her? The mind wanders.

Wait a minute...

So all you have to do there is find a girl that you like, rape her, then she has to marry you?

That's both awesome and disturbing at the same time.
Is that better or worse than selling women to be wives?

That was my take too!

That's why I mentioned stars and artists. Hey, there's Jennifer Aniston or whoever.
What a nutty law and an old law that was merely changed in 2004 so that both ses of parent AND the victim must approve. Parents of the victim will automatically be for it as it is a disgrace to their family otherwise. The Victim would do it to save family from shame. The accused would do it for freedom, and maybe a hot young wife he couldn't get otherwise, his parents would also go for it because it again is shame and at least it means he's free.

An amendment that makes no sense at all. ODDLY though, only 7 in 550 actually married for freedom. Clearly, the sentence was minimal and they weren't actually facing 20 years in prison, otherwise she'd have to be one **** of a ratbag to take 20 years over marrying her, bit of a downer for the victim too though,. "He'd rather spend 20 years in jail than marry me?" Like him or not, that's got some punch to it!

Better or worse than wife sales, I guess that depends how cheap the sale is and how good the goods are. I'd have to have a really good coupon anyway.

The British poet Flecker journeyed in the Levant

and said (I am afraid I cannot give chapter and verse) that his experience with Moslems had heightened his estimation of Christians. One problem with Moslems is that they mistake a lot of Time-of-Darkness (i.e., pre-Moslem) practices in their various countries for Moslem law. Perhaps some Christians do something similar, but it is not so prominent with them.

I admit I couldn't give chapter and verse for my Flecker reference, but if you are going to refer to the OT you should have some idea of the part of the OT you are talking about, and there are on-line concordances to nail it down for you if you remember a word or two.

My own view is that this planet is used as a penal colony, lunatic asylum and dumping ground by a superior civilisation, to get rid of the undesirable and unfit. I can't prove it, but you can't disprove it either.
