Child bride, 13, dies of internal injuries four days after arranged marriage in Yemen\ \

A 13-year-old Yemeni girl died of internal injuries four days after a family-arranged marriage to a man almost twice her age, a human rights group said. A medical report from al-Thawra hospital said she suffered a tear to her genitals and severe bleeding. She was married the previous Monday in a traditional arrangement known as a 'swap marriage', in which the brother of the bride also married the sister of the groom, it said.

Yemen is so poor. Most of these guys living in very remote villages could not afford to have brides or sex (because of the strict religious codes) if they did not find creative ways to 'purchase' brides from equally poor father's of girls looking to sell them off.

It use to be the tradition that these girls would not be touched until 15 or 16 even though they had been purchased and the marriage had taken place. But now, you get some horny poor brute of 23 who has not had sex his entire life and a thirteen your old available vagina and well, here we are.

I wouldn't call a 13 year old a child bride. I'd call a 10 year old a child bride.

There really is a difference between a pre-teen and a teen. In the early part of the twentieth century, 13 year old girls were often married off in America. In the very least, they were often impregnated and gave birth when they were 13 or 14.

The guy who married this girl was a sex maniac who wouldn't take her to a doctor after he raped her. It probably wouldn't have mattered if she was 13 or 15 or 19. He was a brute who forced himself on a frightened bride.

PS - How is a "tear to the genitals" considered internal bleeding? Isn't it external bleeding? The genitals are the outer sex organs. I wouldn't call the cervix and uterus "genitals." I might accept "internal genitalia" but not "genitals." Poor journalism.

Shut up, pedo@r6. A 13 year old girl in the early 20th century or in the 19th is a lot different from a 13 year old today and you know it. A 13 year old today is still a child. There were 8 and 10 year olds cooking for their entire families and carrying the household during those times, how many 8 and 10 year olds could do the same today? Very few, if any.

Socialization and times are different.

[quote] a 13 year old girl in the early 20th century or in the 19th is a lot different from a 13 year old today

But not very different from a 13 year-old girl in Yemen. Although 13 year-olds in Yemen today may be more like 13 year-olds in the 12th century, since Yemen has not advanced much since then, especially the rural areas.

And I'm a female, BTW. Which is why I KNOW there's a difference between a 10 year old and a 13 year old. I've been both.

And "internal bleeding" is bleeding you can't see. If it was the vagina and rectum, you can see it, so it really isn't "internal bleeding." Which is why the husband is such a shitball. If he'd taken her to a doctor, they would have been able to save her. Doctors routinely sew up vaginal tears after childbirth.

I stand by my assertion that it wasn't about her age, it was about the brutality with which the husband forced himself on her and then ignored her visible bleeding.

He did take her to a doctor, dumbass at R20.

-----

According to police notes from the interrogation of the husband, he was upset because he could not consummate their relationship and felt under pressure to prove his manhood.

Assi's mother said she also tried to persuade her daughter to have sex with her husband so as not to shame the family.

Al-Hikmi took his young bride to a nearby medical clinic, asking a doctor there to administer her tranquilizers so she would not resist his advances. The clinic said it refused.

Al-Hikmi then obtained performance enhancing pills, according to the police interrogation, and that night completed the act while she screamed. The next day, he returned to the same medical clinic carrying Assi because she could not walk.

"I told him not to go near her for at least ten days," said Dr. Fathiya Haidar. She said Assi's vaginal canal was ripped.

A forensic report obtained by the AP showed that Assi's injuries were much more extensive, including extensive tearing around the vagina and rectum, suggesting that there might have been additional intercourse after the clinic visit.

Not to gross you all out but it's not at all unusual for grown women to get serious internal damage from rough or forced sex, and in a child or teenage girl whose reproductive organs aren't fully developed it can be very serious as with this girl. Also bear in mind that while a well fed American girl might be sexually mature at thirteen or fourteen, a girl who hasn't had as good nutrition or living conditions might not be sexually mature until she's 18 or 19.

If 13 is considered a child, then why do we have the word adolescent? Adolescence is the stage AFTER childhood and BEFORE adulthood. It is usually defined as starting with the onset of puberty.

I am not advocating that the victim was an adult, but she was not a child. She was an adolescent.

For those stating that she was a child, when does childhood end for you? 18? You really believe that 17 year olds are children? If a 17 year old murdered your family, would you say, "oh well, he was just a child."

Prophet Muhammad is The Perfect Model to emulate for any Muslim. That's why child brides are not forbidden. Better, they are recommended in strict muslim communities: somehow it cures the girls from having impure thoughts later in life.

My understanding of the larger point of the story is that Islam is a religion that promotes cultural practices that leave women and girls vulnerable to horrible abuse.

First of all, you people need to drop the whole phrase "Muslim world". It just makes you sound narrow minded and ignorant and ignores the influence of culture on many of these countries. I have heard stories of little girls violently raped come out of countries in the Far East and Southeast Asia as well. And as far as I know, these are not predominantly Muslim countries. Girls are being exploited everyday in even developed nations through child prostitution. I don't think you can definitively state that Islam is the standard when it comes to the exploitation of women. This problem cuts across religions and cultures. The idiotic poster at r77 can pull all the quotes from the Koran that he likes and it won't change that.

If you love your Eastern culture than you'll try to reform legalized child abuse and violence against women.

Please don't encourage it, R117.

"What are you gonna do? go in there and start a war and force your beliefs on someone else?"

Europeans should have kept their colonies and imposed 20th century Western cultural norms on everyone. I think the world would be a better place today in many respects and not any worse in others if this had happened.

R97 and R99, you are both absolute morons and void of any human decency if you don't see that the issue here is not so much underage sex as it is the fact that a female was violently raped until she died.

Naturally, the parents want this bastard prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for raping their daughter. I'm not sure what they expected when they married her off at 13 years of age.

Sex with a 13 year old is rape.

Not in Yemen R123 and sex outside marriage is illegal there.

And for those who think this is a Muslim issue remember that in the world's largest Muslim country, Indonesia, the age of consent is 16 for women.

Is Yemen worse than Taliban.

It [italic]is[/italic] a Muslim issue. Yemenis have tried to raise the legal age for marriage, but they're blocked by clerics who state that that goes against Muslim law. Some Muslim countries have enough separation of religion and state to enact a modern minimum age. Neither Saudi Arabia nor Yemen has that separation.

Age has nothing to do with physical development with girls. They don't magically start their periods and develop breasts on their 12th or 13th birthdays. Some girls are (physically speaking) sexually mature at 11 or 12 and others not until 17 or 18. The stupid bastard (and the girl's dimwit parents) obviously didn't take that into consideration. Then there is the fact that this was obviously a rape scenario. It's utterly foul and married or not the guy should have his dick cut off.

It's not only a matter of age but also of consent. (Yes, I know a child cannot legally consent to sex.) A much older woman can suffer horrific internal injuries from forced sex. The rape would still have been illegal (I'm assuming rape is illegal in Yemen??) whether she was 6 or 60.

I am a parent. You people need to take human development 101. A 13 year old is a child emotionally regardless of her period or breast size.

I doubt Yemen recognizes the concept of marital rape. Under Islamic law, women are not allowed to refuse their husband's request for sex.

All sex outside marriage is illegal whether consensual or non-consensual. There is no legislation against rape within marriage, unlike many other countries.

In many countries rape survivors are stoned to death by the government for being raped.

Not many R133, actually only in 4, but that is horrific enough.

Well, for starters elementary school teachers would probably get a bit more respect.
