    Default Muslim marriage age up 16 to 18

    The Straits Times -
    THE minimum marriage age at which Muslims can marry has been raised to 18, in line with that for other Singaporeans.

    The change from age 16, which has been floated in the community for some years now, marks its resolve to nip in the bud the problem of broken homes.

    Official figures show that Malay-Muslims make up a disproportionate number of such dysfunctional families, many of whom are couples who married young and divorced soon after.

    Bad news for short gunners. Naïve no more.

    Should be increased to 21 if looking at their overall problems.

    I can never understand the Muslim community take on minimum age to marriage. A sixteen years old teenager, just complete Secondary 4, without any means to make a living or barely surviving and 1 or 2 kids in tow, at age 18?.

    Children looking after children?.

    The sixteen years old are meant for the dirty old men disguised as Ulamas
