Eight-year-old Yemeni Child Dies At Hands Of Forty-year-old Husband On Wedding Night

Published September 9th, 2013 - 10:01 GMT via SyndiGate.info

An eight year old child bride died in Yemen on her wedding night after suffering internal injuries due to sexual trauma. Human rights organizations are calling for the arrest of her husband who was five times her age.


The death occurred in the tribal area of Hardh in northwestern Yemen, which borders Saudi Arabia. This brings even more attention to the already existing issue of forced child marriages in the Middle Eastern region.


"According to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), between 2011 and 2020, more than 140 million girls will become child brides. Furthermore, of the 140 million girls who will marry before the age of 18, 50 million will be under the age of 15."


It is reported that over a quarter of Yemen's young girls are married before the age of 15. Not only do they lose access to health and education, these child brides are commonly subjected to physical, emotional and sexual violence in their forced marriage.


One of the main issues is that there is currently no consistent established definition of a "child" that has been agreed upon worldwide. This leaves various interpretations within countries and little protection for those who are affected.



Establishing this age limit is among the top priorities of groups like HRC which was responsible for publishing the 54-page report “How Come You Allow Little Girls to Get Married?”, documenting the lifelong damage to girls who are forced to marry young. Most pro age-limit organizations agree that 18 should be the legal age for marriage.


In February 2009, a law was created that set the minimum age for marriage at 17. Unfortunately, it was repealed after more conservative lawmakers called it un-Islamic.

No, they're less civilized. Which I suppose is a type of cultural evolution...These types of stories are common from tribal cultures in the middle east... and tribal cultures everywhere. You have no idea the type of shit native Americans did, because we like to hide it. It was just part of their culture and custom. It's how they've always done things.

It doesn't make it right (obviously) but it's simply a matter of sections of humanity beings being out-of-time.

Also being educated and being intelligent are two separate things. Being uneducated makes you ignorant, not unintelligent.
