    Saudi 11-year-old marries 10-year-old cousin

    An 11-year-old boy has married his 10-year-old cousin in the ultra-conservative Muslim kingdom of Saudi Arabia, a newspaper reported on Tuesday.

    Mohammed al-Rashidi and his unidentified cousin will seal the marriage they contracted under the sharia laws of Islam and move in together after a ceremony to take place in the summer, Al-Shams newspaper said.

    "I am ready for this marriage. It will help me study better," Mohammed, who goes to primary school in the northern province of Hail, was quoted as saying by Al-Shams.

    "I invite all my classmates to do like me," the boy said, adding that he wanted to "crown a love story through marriage".

    The schoolboy's father, Muraizak al-Rashidi, told the newspaper he was busy sending out invitations for a summer celebration to seal the marriage.

    Dahim al-Jaber, the headmaster at Mohammed's school, said marriage at such a young age was "inappropriate" but wished the couple a happy life together.

    I can see the honeymoon:

    Boy: Woman, it is time for you to submit to my desires.

    Girl: Yes, my honorable Husband.

    Boy: Go away and leave me alone! Girls are YUCKY!
