Saudi Arabia has no law against child marriage

The 15-year old bride of Saudi Arabia locked herself in the room on wedding night because of fear of her 90-year old husband – and, finally fled to her parent's house after locking him out for two successive nights.

This has been reported in foxnews.com of dated 7th of January 2013.

There are many instances of 80 and 90-year old men marrying girls young enough to be their grand daughters but, this marriage on Saudi Arabia, would probably take the cake.

It seems the man had paid $17,500 as dowry to the parents of the girl and there was nothing illegal in the proposed alliance – the mother is a Saudi, the father a Yemeni.
