LINDA HEAFNER Codar Rapids. Bride Trade Rules Proposed By Michael S. Barrett The husband bo required to stall a By Michael S. Barrett CA1UO (DPI) The Arab version of the mail-order bride is legal but too often young wives end up many miles from home and little more than slaves to husbands old enough to be their grandfathers. The Egyptian government wants to put a stop to It. According to a report published recently in the semi-offi- cial Al Ahram newspaper, nearly 10 girls are sold each week, especially in summer, through marriage contracts to hus- bands they have never seen. They find themselves in Libya, Qatar, Kuwait, Abu Dhabi and other Arab states, unable to cope with their new lives and wanting to go home, sometimes suffering nervous break- downs, bruises and starvation. The bride broker may be a taxi or truck driver who shut- tles across the desert to neighboring Libya. He has the power of attorney to purchase girls, many of them from the poorer section of Glza outside Cairo, for a fixed price her parents gladly accept. _ The to .0 his social status, income. former wives, nmsl certify Its ap the that without these protective measures, there Is IIUIc. No Dowry Requested "But they gave us 200 pounds and they didn't ask for any dowry and I do not think I could ever have a like amount in my hands one mother told Amer Mahgoub, undersecretary of stale in the notary affairs section of the justice ministry. To marry legally with parent's consent in .Egypt a girl must be 16, but often parents claim their daughter is of age even though she is not. A committee of representatives from the notary affairs office and interior and foreign ministries approved a resolu- tion for curbing these contract marriages. 11 proposes: Marriages through an intermediary representative be outlawed when the bridegroom never appears and his age, so- cial position and previous marriages are unknown. The interior ministry refuse to issue passports to girls unless the husband deposits money for her return to Egypt in the event of divorce. the eyes of the public." Statistics show that in 1973 and the arranged marriages took place b between Egyptian girls and men from other Arab some in their 60s, 70s and 80s. Arrive In Bad Condition One embassy wrote July 7 to the undersecretary of the foreign ministry consular affairs department, saying the brides could become quite a problem. Two or three such girls were showing up each week, sometimes as early as two days after arrival in the bridegroom's homeland, often in bad physical and mental condition, asking for passage money home. Al Ahram gave the example of an Egyptian girl sold to a husband in another country who divorced her. Others prom- ised to help and even give her a holiday in Beirut, where she was sold into white slavery, losing the last hope of contact with her home. The newspaper said several Arab countries have prom- ised to take up the problem. So far only Abu Dhabi has pledged to help by turning down a girl's application for entry visa unless the government approves of her husband's age and financial status and she of the match itself.

By Abigail Van Burcn DEAR ABBY: Is there something wrong with my sense of humor, or is my husband sick? He's a tease, a clown and an all-around kidder. The problem is that most of his kidding is downright cruel.
