This 8-Year-Old Bride Died On Her Wedding Night. When You See Why, You’ll Be Sick
The wedding day is one of the happiest and the most beautiful days in life. Or at least it should be. Nevertheless, even though rare, there are cases where this day for some unfortunate people turns into a nightmare.
Lately, an eight-year-old Yemeni girl died on her wedding day as a result of internal bleeding. She was about to marry a man five times older than her. The tradition of marrying young girls to older men is a common case in Yemen, even though it is disgusting for the most of the people throughout the world.
Namely, more than one fourth of the female population is Yemen is married before they even turn fifteen. In 2010, there was a death case of a twelve-year-old girl who died after a three-day struggle in labor to give birth to a baby. Still, this is only one of the many cases of this kind and there are numerous other girls who undergo similar horrors.
The abovementioned cases, as well as all of the remaining cases have infuriated people throughout the world and they have decided to make an effort in order to stop this practice.
These people are working hard in order to try and end this barbaric tradition, but, that is not an easy task. Taking in consideration the fact that Yemen is impoverished country and makes profit from this practice, it is not easy for these people to manage to stop this practice and convince the authorities to give it up. In this country, the poor people are in essence forced to accept ‘bride-prices’ and give their daughters for $100, who will be later sold off to be married.
