It's not just Muslim men doing it
Britain’s Channel 4 aired an exclusive story this week about British citizens who have travelled to join the fight to oust Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad inside rebel-held territory in the country's north.
The story followed a woman calling herself “Maryam” who travelled from Britain to marry a rebel fighter from one of the jihadist rebel groups.
Maryam's marriage to her fighter husband, Abu Bakr, was arranged by his mother three months ago. She didn't meet him until after they were married, according to Channel 4.
Until her recent departure from the UK for Syria she lived what she describes as an okay life.
She and her husband are shown raising a child together, and are now expecting another. They say that their long-term objective is what they see as the liberation of Syria, followed by the establishment of an Islamic caliphate.
They never think of how bad it'll be for their children under such awful totalitarian settings as what they want to set up.
