8-year-old Yemeni Bride Dies From Internal Bleeding On Wedding Night by infonubia(m): 12:48am On Sep 09, 2013
Rawan, an 8-year-old child bride died of internal bleeding injuries on the night of an arranged marriage in the city of Hardh in Northwest Yemen after being given out in marriage to a man who is over 40!

She is believed to have suffered a tear to her genitals and severe bleeding.

Yemeni activists urged the local police to arrest the “beastly groom” and the girl’s family and transfer them to a court where justice would be served and the case would be used to help put an end to the practice of marrying very young girls in the impoverished country, the daily said.

In Kuwait, bloggers offered their prayers for the “bride”, but lashed out at the “groom”, saying that he was a beast who should be severely punished.

Angry Man, a blogger, posted that the man was “an animal who deserved to be punished severely for his crime.”

“All those who supported such a crime should also be punished,” he said.

Under the moniker “Sad”, another blogger said that everybody should have realized that Rawan was too young to get married.

“Her family and her groom could have waited for some time before having this marriage,” Sad said. “It was not fair at all and the marriage should not have happened even if some tribes believe that it is a good custom.”

Bu Omar said that he was disturbed by the death report.

“Rawan’s family members are not humans. They do not deserve to have children,” he said.

My Take

I get really upset when I hear stories of older men taking these children as brides. I mean, how low can you stoop? I cannot but think about the #ChildNotBride saga in Nigeria and how many young children have been given away under such circumstances and yet, we have some people in our society who are absolutely okay with such pediophilic practices?

Some might say 8 years is too young but 13 is okay. There are numerous stories of young girls (13 year-old included) that have suffered similar fate as Rawan. Unfortunately, for every story that is reported, there are several hundreds that are untold.

As a society we should frown against such practices and we should do all that we can to protect these young girls.

What's Your Take?

Let's hear your take on the story...Looking forward to it!

Really sad. For me, the saddest part is knowing that more children are victims of these arranged marriages that we know about and some people are cool with it.

Yes, the groom has his own fault, no doubt, he's a phidophile, but what about the parent who agreed to marry out their 8 years old girl, all in the name of money?
As far as im concerned, the parent of that girl and every other parents who usually support this type of animalistic behaviour are all big shame and faluire to parenthood.



I have said it before and i will say it again, NOT ALL PARENTS DESERVE TO BE PARENTS.

The person with the greatest fault in the whole picture is the MOTHER of the late girl. What kind of mother will stay alive and watch her child/BABY (as far as am concerned an 8 year old is still a baby) go tru so much torture

Each time I read a story like this,I remember 9 months and the whole pain of delivery and I say prayers to God to give me the grace and strength to lead my children through the right part in his words.

The F-oolish father and groom ain't left out of the fault. The worst thing that can happen to a child in this life is to have a mother who is a big FAILURE.

Such practices shouldn't have a place in our society.

some mothers dont actuay agree to the madness but after force,pressure,harrassments and threats from the 1d1otic father she has no choice than to give in moreover women dont really have a say on their childs life in some countries.anyway like one of them have righrly said how low can a man stoop.the parents and the animalistic groom need to be arrested.they are not better than rapists and murderers

If that be the case my dear,then it will be OVER MY DEAD BODY, I am a mother and I know just how it feels alone to watch my son fall or just see him crying. I would rather run away with that child,live under the bridge and beg rather than give my baby out in marriage at such age to a monster in human skin.

I am happy she died.
Death for her and other girls in her condition is preferable than living under a religion that considers you worse than an animal. Hell their camels and cows are treated better.
I am happy she died.
If she had survived, she would have constantly faced this kind of trauma every single day until the ba$tard (Allah bless his soul) loses interest in her and gets another little girl to torture.
I am happy she died.
Under the "religion of peace" she never had much of a future anyway. A religion that doesnt recognize her worth or that she is capable of thinking or feeling.
Good for her that she escaped early.
I am happy she died.

Forget the marriage label. That is something between a woman and a man.
They sold their 8 year old child as a sex slave to a mad old man...

you are right.i will do the same too but if i am pushed to the wall, ,ill go extreme.ill kill the man,kill the intending groom, before the wedding,kill my self.that way,its better all the parties and i die and let the child remain a child than for me to be alive and watch one beast marry a child

right thinking /normal parents of 0-20 year olds have no buisness with collecting bride price or talking to a child about marrying a sick old man.their buisness should be a childs mntal,physical and all round development,i.e western and religious education.it is only a depraved father or mother that will be convincing a child to marry an old man and with time the painful and traumatizing s3x will not pain her again.she should only endure
