Muslims shouldnt outlaw Germany's own law, so I guess Germany has the right point to do this

Im kind of torn between this topic because for me, we need to respect their culture too but i understand that it's child abuse

I understand Germany's point and they totally have the right to invalidate underaged marriages, i think at this moment, the Muslim refugees have no choice but accept the fact that there's gonna be new rules and laws at this new place they are in.

Definitely. Regardless of how you want to look at it, underage marriage is child abuse, molestation, and rape. These marriages need to be invalidated, in order for these girls to have a chance of education and freedom, but most importantly, their own lives and the choice to do with it as they please.

Yes! How is this even a question! Underage marriages are not consensual, and let's not forget about the forced violation and exploitation of these girls. This is such a great incentive to undo a terrible and and injustice.

God, without a doubt. Forcing young girls to marry old men an enter a life that falls nothing short of child abuse, is repugnant. It being part of your culture or religion is no excuse and does not exempt you from allowing and supporting pedophilia.

This enactment mirrors a bigger social conflict between Western popularity based qualities and those of conventional Muslims. A few Germans see their center convictions going under attack.

I think no one has the right to put his cultural values or whatever beliefs above Germany's law.. you know
