Without dwelling on the ethical side of things, damn, that's a lot of money for someone in Sudan to spend on anything. Could've probably had her kidnapped to order, the family killed, and the cops paid off, for less than that. For perspective, not as a suggestion.

If he's not completely fucked up, she's set for life in any material sense, so while not palatable, this may well prove to be a good thing for her in terms of her long term quality of life, and is bound to really boost her family along.

Of course, that's a big if.

Considering it's a country which apparently permits a girl to marry at 10, and a third marry before 18, and the average is around 30, it's not outrageous by their standards that she is 16, so I'd say the fact that she was effectively sold to him is more of a concern here.

Women have generally been for sale in most cultures around the world since time began.

Nothing much really all that different here.

This is why a certain religion will never be compatible with the modern world.

Let's face it.

It's all about 'Gash for Cash'...or...in this case, 'Gash for Cows'.


I am not claiming that Women Are FOR SALE.

No. Far from it.

Women are FOR LEASE. That's different.
