8-Year-Old Child Bride Dies After Wedding Night

AWM - 04-05


In Yemen, a child bride was forced to marry a man five times her age. Because the Yemeni girl was only eight-years-old, she was extremely small and still very much a child. However, that did not stop her 40-year-old groom from having sexual intercourse with her on their wedding night. However, things only got worse from there because the bride eventually died from internal bleeding following her newlywed husband’s forceful penetration.
