Islamic Child Marriages “Legal in Canada”


Islamic marriages to child brides are legal in Canada, say Canadian officials.

Muslim men immigrating to Canada frequently bring their wives, who in the case of many Islamic nations may have been legally married as small children or teenagers.

According to Canadian immigration services, many of these men then attempt to sponsor their “wives” for dependent visas.

One official denied a Pakistani man a visa for his 15-year-old wife, but was frustrated to find that the marriage itself remained legal, official documents reveal:

“I can find no section (of law) that states the marriage is ‘invalid’ or ‘void.’ I am afraid the age does not invalidate the marriage even if it is illegal to marry.”

Canadian immigration officials say they reject applications for spousal visas where the spouse is clearly underage, and it is clearly illegal to marry children in Canada, but that pre-existing marriages to children are unaffected.

    I will sound sick saying this, but I see no problem with this. It isn't like they are marrying within the borders of Canada, but they are legally married outside Canada and come into Canada as a married couple. It isn't Canada's choice on what constitutes a legal marriage someplace else, so why should this cause outrage?

    So you (Canada) ban shit like Words Worth and Cool Devices because it contains rape which you find obscene (despite being fictional) yet this shit's perfectly legal. Yeah, okay Canada.

    You people have to realize that it is forbidden in Islam to have a marriage with one person not wanting it, also this is mainly cultural to have younger wives and this practice is mainly present in extremely rural parts, Before criticizing a religion based on what you have elicited from the corrupt media, research that topic to reveal the actual truth. Beleive it or not, Muslims like these and terrorists make up about 4 percent of the 1.6 billion Muslim Population. Infact, if you looked at and read the Qur'an, you would realize that these people in the article and terrorists are in fact not Muslims. Dont scapegoat a third of the worlds population based on 4 percent of the actual people in it.

    4% is a massive number when you think about it.

    that's 1 in every 25 muslims

    4% of 1.6 billion = sixty-four million

    quite a significant number

    how you come to that conclusion that %4 of muslims live like this ?
    Turkey got 70 millions and we have never heard marriage like this for the recent years.

    Stop the ignorance please, and read some books, watch non-manipulated news. Terrorism in western countries pawns terrorism in muslim countries.

    Another little-known quirk of the law that says marriages performed legally in other countries are legally valid in Canada: Although polygamy is (tenuously) illegal in Canada, there are several immigrants to Canada legally recognized as married to more than one wife by virtue of being married in an Islamic country.

    I think this has to do with Canada's preference of multi-culturism. It's in the nation's Charter or Rights and Freedoms not to indiscriminate because of race(and customs was it?)and stuff.

    this article makes me sad that I am a Canadian - it is illegal to view loli doujin but it is perfectly fine to bring in a loli wife


    As to it is not legal to have sex with loli wife - do you think the police are going to stay in the house of the couple to make sure this isn't going to happen?

    ...let me get this straight.

    Lolicon manga is illegal in Canada, but being a Muslim and marrying a REAL child is not.

    No, you misunderstand. They don't allow lolis to be wed here, they just allow muslim men to bring their loli brides with them and consider the marriage valid even if they were married as 2 year old toddlers and clearly didn't give any informed consent to it.

    But of course, if a Canadian citizen went overseas to visit the middle east and get himself a loli bride, that'd be child sex tourism.

    Hypocrisy is fun.

    *pffffft* you guys make me laugh!
    Look at them comments! It's like someone just killed a kid in front of a police station and was found innocent...

    with what's kids are up to at school these days, I'm not surprised.

    And think about it: Marriage and sex are completely different things. Infact, a lot of married people don't even know what sex is! (Rural areas boy, where there is no subject called 'biology')

    What I'm against is that some parents force their kids to agree to marriage. No wonder the kids run away from their old husbands... sick. And most of them do it for the money. Sick people.

    15 years old girl is old enough to birth a child.....and remember the wise proverb : old enough to bleed, old enough to's just the LAW of NATURE.......according to some researchs, healthy male tends to prefer the younger mate for himself.....and in the ANCIENT ROME it is LEGAL for you to marry a I think it's not a problem to MARRY a young girl.....the PROBLEM is : WHEN YOU HAVE A XXX with a female outside of what can be defined as PEDOBEAR / PEDOPHILE / LOLICON nowadays, is actually a continuous healthy traditions for human to exist and multiply.....THE ROMANS, THE ARABS, THE CHINESE....AND ALSO THE JAPANESE knew that already....but only in USA, a person like that can be considered " the 2nd most dangerous human" next to terrorists and MANIAC KILLERS......WTF with your AGE OF CONSENT-federal law, Mr. Alfred F.

    what's wrong about hearing that a man marries with a 15 year old girl, where girls having sex in their 13-14's?
    i heard that some condom manufacturers discussed and decided to produce condoms for 14 year childs.
    So, if we are going to accuse somebody, the "Pakistani" is not the 1st in line.

    Would you prefer the condoms being too big and the 13 year old getting knocked-up?

    Wouldn't be an issue if America had better sex-ed beyond "This is a penis, this is a pussy, and nary the twain shall meet until marriage"...but that's conservative world for ya.

    If I were 13 and noticed that the condom was too big, I'd certainly stop having sex until I was big enough for them. That's why making smaller condoms is wrong and corrupts our children.

    First of all, the last prophet didn't marry Aisha when she was 9, the prophet marrie her after she reached puberty, she was actually around 18 or 19 when she got married.

    13-year-olds are sexually mature, so it is natural for a normal man to feel attracted to them, especially since young women are often the healthiest and therefore appear the prettiest.

    Also, men are biologically programmed to have sex with as many women as possible, so it is natural for a normal man to have sex with as many women as possible.

    In conclusion, you are not a normal, "true" man.

    Canadian immigration officials say they reject applications for spousal visas where the spouse is clearly underage, and it is clearly illegal to marry children in Canada, but that pre-existing marriages to children are unaffected.

    Did everyone miss this?

    The marriage is considered legal (they don't invalidate marriages in other countries) but they cannot bring their underage wives into the country.

    As I understand it they can bring them in but not get spouse visas for them. I presume there are other legal means for keeping them in country.

    you can't sponser them then if they're not being sponsered as their wife. unless they've married their sister, daugther or mother then no go.

    That only means they can't bring them in as wives, if they wanted to get a visa for them as their kids or something it might be possible.
