Child Brides and Grooms in Oman

Just a quick question, what is the youngest marriage (Melka ect--not consumation) you have ever heard of in Oman?

Me, I know a girl who married when she was eight and the boy was eleven. Of course, they waited until they both finished Uni to be PHYSICALLY married, but they were married under Shariah. Of course, this was the work of their families.

Note*: The girl, to this day is very happy.

Am just curious. And if you know the region they were from/in, also name it. Feel free to post anonymously.
***The region the couple I know who married young are from is Dakliyah.

I know that some parents *promise* their child to someone's child when they reach a certain age, of course, no marriage there. I am a mother and I wouldn't do that to my child. Everyone is *free* to do what they want for their children. I would want my children to have 100% of say in the matter of marriage. sf
