These ‘men’ and especially the ‘fathers’ of these girls children need to be taken out and… be subjected to severe corporal punishment.

Ahem.

Yah, that’ll do it.

Arranged marriages with child brides is known even in western cultures of a few hundred years ago, especially in extended royal families. We overcame it through expanded inclusive education, advanced understanding of female physiology, and a standard of living that decreased mortality rates.

Beating the crap out of the men, making it illegal and throwing them in jail or even taking the girls away from the parents will just force it farther underground and make it harder to find and expose.

As was said, it isn’t simple.
