There is not a lot of difference between this and Dominionist marriages in the US.

In Mrs. Fool's family in Mexico when they say "Vamos matar una vaca!" (We're going to kill a cow) they mean they are going to have a really big party.

Did the buyer get a refund?

It's always nice to find out my previous "faith in humanity restored" moment from some previous time when I tought, "maybe life isn't just an avalanche of shiat until we die", gets to be thrown in the trashbin.

They better have. When I purchase a child bride I damn well expect a child bride or my money back.

So weddings are really cheap in Mexico.... Good to know.

Seriously, though, this entire situation is messed up.

Even though it was illegal, the local cops still arrested her and were going to imprison her for the cost of the arranged wedding.

Good that she was released, but damn who knows how many others didn't get the chance.

Local cops, it says in the article, aren't real cops. They just act like them. Imagine an Oathkeepers "police" force, answering to no one.

You joke, but in all seriousness she's in jail until she either acquiesces to the marriage or pays the groom's family $2600.   She's 14.

Yeah, some cult leaders in the US are probably taking careful notes from the article.

That is a really complicated problem with no easy set of answers.

Like: the family is really poor and desperately needed the money they sold the daughter into slavery (er, "marriage") for. The mother is a widow (the father having been murdered previously) so obviously in a rural indigenous community where women are already marginalized, a poor widow hasn't got many options.

Since the local cops are the ones who handle everything, clearly the Mexican government has written off the area (who cares about those poor Mixtec Indios anyway? We have governmenting to do!) and they are still locked into old lifeways where men are on top, the money is on top, and poor young girls are at the whims of everyone else.

And it's easy for the President or whoever to swing by once in a while and furrow his brow and say "Yes, we need to address these problems while accepting the indigenous values as unique and special to them."

Indeed, how do you say to the local indigenous population, "THIS is acceptable but THAT is not" without sounding like the colonial power that you are? America isn't the only country dealing with these issues.

I applaud you farkers' intelligence and awareness on a wide variety of issues but sometimes I wish I wouldn't look it up for myself.

You stop worrying about sounding like a colonial power.  You either stand for something or don't stand for anything at all.

I knew some of our neighbors to the south were into the animal sacrifice thing. I thought they mostly did goats and chickens, not cows. I didn't know they did the child bride thing for dowries either.

Difference is; here if the 14 year old girl runs away from the arranged marriage, she's not going to get arrested.

She's out of jail and in protective custody.  According to the article, when the real police found out, they went in and helped.

That's f*cked up.  Anyone who would sell their child into slavery/marriage (and anyone who would buy such a slave/wife) deserves to be executed by the most painful method imaginable.

Anyone who would stand by and allow it to happen deserves a savage (but not lethal) beating.

This sounds like some shiat Iran would do.  Maybe India. I thought you were better than this Mexico.

Once a girl is bought, she is "treated as an object" by the family that paid for them, Barrera said. "She has to work, she has to cook the food, she has to do the cleaning, she has to go to the fields, and if she gets to work as an agricultural laborer, the money is not going to be paid to her, but to her father-in-law," Barrera said.

Yep, she was sold as a lave.

Done in one. This is monstrous, and the worst part of it is that the "hard labor and unwanted pregnancies" part is creeping back into U.S. nomenclature. The repeal of Roe v. Wade, the re-normalization of minors in work situations - it's farking evil, and yet we have folks in Congress right now referring to women as "earthen vessels" and assholes cheering them on.

MythDragon: Maybe India.


CSB: Not just in India but people from of that descent. I have a friend, born in Alabama, and is of Indian descent (yes, an Indian guy with a thick southern drawl). His family is wealthy. It seemed like every Friday that I saw him at the bar that he had a different woman on his arm. This went on for years until one Friday he had an Indian woman on his arm. This was a first as his thing was blondes. He introduced her as his fiancé. When she went to the bathroom, I asked when he met her. He replied "this afternoon". Arranged marriages are very common in Indian culture but she sure as hell wasn't 14 years old.

Maybe indigenous cultures are just as screwed up as non-indigenous cultures.

It's turtles oppressors all the way down.
