6 They from the bedroom

By: John Roberts

A young bride locked out her elderly groom from the bedroom for several days following their marriage and then fled to her parents’ home, according to press reports in Saudi Arabia.

While it is not unusual for an older man to marry a younger woman in Saudi culture, the recent marriage of a Saudi man, who is 90-years-old, to a girl, who is 15-years-old, is raising human rights issues.

In an interview with a Saudi Arabian television station, the old groom said that his marriage was "legal and proper" and noted that he paid the parents of the girl $17,500.

But the man told the television station about what went down during their first night together. He complained that his new wife slammed shut their bedroom door. Family friends said the teen was scared on her wedding night and locked herself in the bedroom for two consecutive days before fleeing to her parents' house.
