    Syrian boy, 5, gets engaged to three-year-old... and parents buy rings for the happy couple to exchange Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1322599/Syrian-boy-5-gets-engaged-year-old--

    Their engagement in Syria after a whirlwind holiday romance could set an unenviable world record.
    Khalid, the would-be groom, is five. Hala, his fiancee, is a tot of three.
    Their parents, astonishingly, are not only taking the betrothal seriously – they even arranged the ceremony and bought the rings which the ‘couple’ exchanged as if they were adults.

    They say the playschool-aged pair consented to the match and are acting of their own free will, although they will not wed for another 10 years.
    'We know Khalid or Hala might change their mind in the future, but what we do know at this stage is that they are very happy and talk to each other every day,' the boy’s father, Juma, told Gulf News.
    'Khalid is waiting until he is 15 to marry Hala.'
    The boy is said to have met and fallen in love with Hala while he was holidaying with his parents in Lattakia, on Syria’s Mediterranean coast.
    Khalid was supposedly lovesick on his return home to Homs - a town about 100 miles north of Damascus, the Syrian capital - and refused to go back to his nursery unless Hala joined him.
