Child-bride has died on her wedding night for one simple reason: Sadness

Child-bride has died on her wedding night for one simple reason: Sadness

The 8-year-old bride reportedly died of internal injuries at her wedding after being forced to wed a guy who was five times her age, according to the statement. In an effort to bring justice to the girl’s family, several urged for the husband to be detained. Additionally, activists demanded that the nation cease the custom of marrying underage girls.

A sad tradition exists in Yemen when young girls are wed off to much older men. According to statistics, about a quarter of women are married by the time they are 15. The custom has repercussions, to be sure. According to activists, the 8-year-old Yemeni girl named Rawan passed away from internal hemorrhage after having sex with her husband, 40, on the couple’s wedding night.

A blogger by the name of Angryman wrote about the custom as well as the incident with the bride, who was 8 years old. “All those who supported such a crime should also be punished,” he continued, referring to the husband as “an animal who deserved to be punished severely for his crime.”

According to reports, locals even sought to stifle local media by pleading with them not to write about the incident. Yemeni households will occasionally wed off their young daughters to save money. They are no longer responsible for feeding or caring for the child. In order to spread awareness regarding child sexual abuse, we are republishing this story. According to statistics, one in nine girls and one in fifty-three males under the age of 18 encounter sexual abuse or adult assault.
