8-Year-Old Child Forced To Marry 40-Year-Old Dies On Wedding Night, Internal Bleeding
In the western society, anyone younger than 18 years old is considered a child, but that is not the case in other counties. Many Arab countries around the world have no problem with forcing an 8-year-old to get married. An 8-year-old Yemeni girl was compelled to marry a man who is old as her father and died on her wedding night due to internal bleeding. The Human Rights Campaign are trying to help other girls by defining the age limit girls can get married.
