    Well, I guess if 8 years is old enough to get married over there, 9 months is old enough to kill.

    Yes, a bad joke in reference to how children often get married in that part of the world.

    I had to make sure, some people actually do believe the marriageable age in some countries is really that low. In Pakistan, for reference in the future, it's 16 for women and 18 for men. So there's that.

    This may be an official age, but its not when they are typically arranged.
