Judge blocks 14-year-old girl's arranged marriage
by Peter Mickelburough
A 14-year-old girl has been banned from leaving Australia and has had to surrender her passport to save her from an arranged marriage.
Just days before the girl's father planned to whisk her overseas to marry a man she has never met, the Family Court ordered she must stay.
The Melbourne teenager is one of a number of Australian girls forced into arranged marriages overseas each year.
