In Yemen a 8 year old child bride, a pretty small girl, died recently on her wedding night from internal hemorrhaging. A man almost five times her age was married to her. Its a very common practice in Yemen to marry child bride‘s to older men.
In 2010, a 12 year old girl was died suffering in the labor room trying to give birth to a baby. There have been many more incidents to these types recorded so far as almost a quarter of the female population are married before the age of 15 in Yemen.
At only age of 8, a child bride was married and had internal injuries that bad that she died the very same night she was married.
Its very common practice in Yemen of marring more than a quarter of female population getting married before the age of 15 and that too with older men almost 2 to 3 times of the bride’s age.
These incidents have outraged groups worldwide that are trying and working on to stop this barbaric tradition.
Groups worldwide are working to stop this archaic and lame practice which is completely disgusting, but having difficulties doing it and facing many challenges.The country has almost 80% of population below poverty line and that grips the people for practice of selling their daughters to be married in their childhood itself as it gets them good prices for their children and that’s why they don’t say no to it.
