The case of a 12-year-old Saudi Arabian girl who successfully won a divorce from her 80-year-old husband could prompt the Arab kingdom to introduce a minimum marriage age, the Telegraph of London reports.

The girl was 11 when she was wed against her wishes to her father's cousin last year in an arranged marriage in her hometown of Buraidah, near the Saudi capital of Riyadh, the Telegraph reported Thursday. Her father was paid a $23,350 dowry.

The girl, with the help of a lawyer from the state-run Human Rights Commission, has been trying to get out of the marriage and took her case to court in Buraidah. She recently reached an agreement with her family, and the divorce will be settled privately rather than in the courts, the Telegraph reported.

Saudi Arabia has no minimum legal age for marriage and it is common in poorer, tribal areas for girls to be married off. However, it is rare for a child bride to challenge the match.

The case has prompted the Human Rights Commission to call for a legal minimum age of 16 in the kingdom. The commission and the Ministry of Justice will issue new guidelines after hearing from medical experts, child psychologists and scholars of Islamic law.

"The main aim is to not allow cases like this to happen again," Alanoud al-Hejailan, a lawyer for the commission, told the Telegraph.

"There will be some opposition, of course, but we feel that public opinion has changed on this issue. We want to gather all the public support we can for a minimum age for marriage."

The case has been hotly debated in Saudi Arabia, with some judges and clerics citing the Prophet Muhammad's marriage to a 9-year-old as justification for child brides.

Sheikh Abdullah al-Manie, a senior Saudi cleric, earlier this year slammed the comparison, saying the prophet's marriage occurred centuries ago and could not be used to justify marriages today.

Why does a 80 years old man want a 11 years old girl? Because she is a virgin?

Wow. Selling your 11-year-old kid into sexual slavery for $23,000.

And I'll bet half the country is pissed off about the divorce being granted, and would like to resolve the issue by stoning her to death.

Those wacky Arabs.

'Tis sad when young love goes awry.

I wonder if he'll have to pay "child support"?

Yeah, that's the good thing about this divorce, in that there were no kids involved. Except for the wife, of course.

Last week some jerkoff Muslim convert on the south side of Chicago murdered his wife and kids. IIRC, he claimed that he walked outside and because he didn't see the moon, he took it as a sign from Allah to whack his family.

One of the children killed was named "Jihad."

At least he was good enough to remove his DNA from the gene pool.

Can we wipe the Middle East off the face of the map because the Sun didn't rise in the west?

Sounds like their logic.

No shit. Roman Polanski would’ve easily doubled that money.
That’s just lazy market research there.

Muslim scripture says it's okay to this.

Judeo-Christian scripture allows this too, but we pick-and-choose what's cool and not cool.
