Every year, around the same time, an underage couple get engaged somewhere in Egypt and make headlines. So we’re not surprised at this point that these kind of arrangements exist. Yet, today is the first time we watch the actual engagement party, see an actual shabka and know it’s actual price.

Desouk, Kafr el-Sheikh just celebrated the most recent and holy/Notsoholy union of two 15-year-old residents. Ninth graders, Fares Sherif and Nada Abdel Bar, announced their engagement on social media and as expected the whole society was enraged. This time parents came forward and explained the deal to media outlets.
Father of the groom told Youm7 that both families and bride and groom agreed on this union, and even bragged that they got the bride an EGP 30,000 shabka and the student paid half of it’s price.
