Recently, chilling news came from Yemen. An 8-year-old girl by the name of Raman died from internal bleeding. The alleged reason: side effects after sexual intercourse with her 40-year-old husband on the night of their wedding. Since then, there have been conflicting reports about what really happened, with local authorities denying the story. But it did cast the spotlight on the issue of child weddings, which are legal in Yemen.
