8-year-old child bride marries 40-year-old man, dies of sexual trauma on honeymoon night

SHARE:

Yemen is a country where child marriages are prevalent due to socio-cultural norms. It is also where an 8-year-old child bride died the night of her wedding night because her 40-year-old husband forced her to have sex with him.

Every child deserves to have a childhood. They are also human beings with rights and dignity. With their youth and vulnerability, they have no means of protecting themselves against the world and the elements that seeks to use them.

Child marriages are violations of human rights. Despite laws against the practice, it remains widespread especially in developing countries due to poverty and gender inequality. According to United Nations Population Fund, one in every three girls is married before they reach 18. One in nine is married under 15. Continuous practice of child marriages threatens the young girls’ lives and health. They can get pregnant during adolescents, thus increasing risks of complications during pregnancy and childbirth. Increasing complications can lead to death.

Just like what happened to an 8-year-old child bride in Yemen. She died on her wedding night after suffering sexual trauma when her 40-year-old husband forced sex with her. The death occurred in the tribal area of Hardh located in northwestern Yemen. The incident puts the existing practice of child marriages in Middle East in the spotlight.

Millions of child brides are denied of their rights. Some are just past puberty and yet they are already denied access to education, health and economic opportunities. If we do nothing, millions will still suffer and their fate might be like the 8-year-old girl who died because a man 5 times her age forced her to have sex with him.
