14-year-old girl is Israel's 'youngest divorcee'
Israeli media are reporting a 14-year-old Israeli girl has got a divorce from her husband aged 17-years-old.
The couple exchanged vows and a ring in front of friends but when her parents found out what had occurred, they insisted on a religious divorce.
The religious court in Jerusalem then held the divorce proceeding and agreed to it.
The divorce will go on the girl's legal file, meaning that when she is 16, her identity card will say she is divorced.
One consequence of this is that - if she follows Jewish religious law - she will not be able to marry anyone from the traditional Jewish priestly caste.
A 14-year-old Israeli girl has got a divorce from her 17-year-old husband, making her what media are describing as the country's youngest divorcee.
The divorce came after a rabbinical court ruled that their wedding met the major requirements of Jewish law.
The two sweethearts had exchanged vows in front of friends, exchanged a ring, and the union had been consummated.
When her parents found out what had occurred, they insisted on a religious divorce, which she initially refused.
Both partners come from traditionally religious Jewish families.
