OP


Post  Thu, Jul 18 2019, 12:05 pm
I often scroll through reddit when I'm bored (and read everything on Imamother). On one forum a 16 year old girl from a frum fanily in the Netherlands posted that her parents were forcing her to marry her BF because they caught her (rather her brother caught her and proceeded to beat her) having s-x. It sounds like legally they can't do this in the Netherlands anyways but she's still afraid of the religious part that her parents told her will take place in 7 weeks. Is there a Rav she can talk to? Who lives in the Netherlands anyways? Chassidim? JPFs? I don't know a specific city...

I would PM with any useful information I have if anyone can provide some. Thank you!

Poor girl.
Not that I would be ok with my 16 year old having and doing anything with a BF but this sounds like a recipe for disaster.

I wouldn't believe everything you read on the internet.

I meant to add in the OP "in case this is true". Based on what she wrote and how she repsonded to commentors made me think it was. Either way though I don't think I'd have anything to lose by giving her resources.

Sounds like a troll to me. More likely she's Muslim pretending to be jewish so she won't be identified. Especially the brother beating her up part. And in the Netherlands where muslim girls deal with this a lot.

We're currently discussing in the Judaism subreddit if the post seems legitimate or not. It actually seems like it might be, due to the timing of three weeks.

I don't believe that this story is true. If it is true, I don't believe this girl is jewish and certainly not frum.
People make up all kids of stories to get attention.

Agree the Muslim part sounds more likely. Or maybe she doesn't live in the Netherlands. And she is a bored or delusional person (not necessarily a teenager even) looking to stir up drama. Or scam people out of money.

Good point! Didn't even think of that. And I guess 7 as it's before YT....
