Certain aspects of the muslim faith that I don't like.

Girl, 12, fighting to divorce 80-year-old husband in Saudi Arabia

That is the headline to this article in the Telegraph.

A girl of 12 fighting to divorce her 80 year old husband.

An Extract from the article;

Saudi Arabia, a patriarchal society that applies an austere version of Sunni Islam, has no minimum legal age for marriage. Fathers are granted guardianship over their daughters, giving them control over who their daughters marry and when. However, it is rare for a child bride to challenge the match.

I don't think there is anything more to add to this.

The headline says it all.

The quicker we get hydrogen powered cars the better.
