    I don't think this was a "shot gun wedding" ;) And only a ten dollar fine they got off cheap.

    Parents arrested at wedding of boy, 7, girl, 5 - CNN.com


    KARACHI, Pakistan (AP) -- A Pakistani court has freed the parents of a 5-year-old girl and a 7-year-old boy on bail a day after police raided an illegal wedding for the children.

    Police arrested the parents and a cleric preparing to perform the ceremony before 100 guests in Karachi on Friday.

    On Saturday, a judge ordered the parents released pending the next hearing in their case.

    Marriage below the age of 18 is illegal in Pakistan, though some Muslim scholars say it is permissible if the bride and groom have reached puberty.

    The parents reportedly arranged the wedding to end a long feud between the families.

    A Pakistan Human Rights Commission official says the maximum punishment for the parents would be one month in prison and a fine of about $10.
