    I've heard about people meeting the friends made over myspace in person, though this seems a little extreme.

    Although I question a 16-year-old's judgement...

    God bless him. I guess their union won't be for a few more years.

    That's not too unrealistic, I have anywhere from a 7-8 hour workday where I'm likely accessing the internet in one way or another, add to that an hour or two at home and it comes out roughly 7-8 hours total (not on the internet 100% of the time at work). If he had a internet-related job that required longer days than mine I could see it happening.

    10 hours! :eek: That's odd :)
    In my opinion converting to a religion for the wrong reasons can lead to bad things

    Same, I'm wondering how she paid for a flight to Israel.

    ...it did have the making of a Sleepless in Seattle ending.

    Pffft, that's nothing. Mad Jew spends 31 hours a day on the internet. For him, today is still Saturday.

    She's 16, he's 20. Both young and fairly stupid IMO.

    The allowances kids get these days must be unreal. When I was 16 I had to have a job if I wanted money.

    I know someone who did that. She converted from some kind of paganism to Mormon so she could marry the guy. She was divorced after a year and change.

    What if he was from England, or the US, or Canada? Would that be okay then?

    sure that would be fine....:rolleyes:

    no... if you noticed i said or wherever he was from....

    fact of the matter here the guy is an ADULT trying to get a CHILD to come live with him....

    i do understand that other cultures live their lives with different rules and standards.... (and that is ok by me) All i am saying is if an adult tried to lure my child to be with them without my knowledge or consent i would not be happy and there would be hell to pay! :cool:

    If the Love is pure as this man claimed, why could it not wait 2 years for the girl to be a legal adult and fly to him of her own free will?

    By then she may have come to her senses.

    Sounds like she has a troubled relationship with her parents. Could she have been running away from her parents instead of running towards him?
