Heh, I'd rather die, too, rather than being forced to get married with some old gramp.

Isn't what the guy doing the same as selling his daughter? >___>

Money's all they think about nowadays =T

what a badass

but srsly, that's pretty messed up

TypicalCats 08-18-2008 12:26 PM

dam why commit suicide if you could just run away

The girl identified only as, Shaikha, said her father was forcing her to marry the old man so that he could marry his 13-year-old daughter in an exchange deal, Bahrain's Tribune reported.
I don't blame her. Poor girl.. .-.

Ascherit 08-18-2008 12:38 PM

Her father must be a pedophile or something...ew.

Solemn 08-18-2008 01:10 PM

Wow...that's horrible. I probably wouldn't have committed suicide immediately but rather find some clever way to avoid him as much as possible. I'd then commit suicide, after trying but failing for months on end. :\

Yume 08-18-2008 01:11 PM

Wow... to be forced to do something like that... I don't know that I'd die, but I'd probably do something close to that. =/

Mitchi 08-18-2008 06:53 PM

What's worse was the fact that the father was exchanging his daughter for a 13 year old bride. WTH??

Mysteria 08-18-2008 07:09 PM

Theres alot of things wrong with this story.

the moral: always carry a shotgun

Rusty 08-19-2008 06:10 PM

Woah, a 75 year old man has a 13 year old daughter?

Damn. o_o

Edit: I like Mysterias moral.

Kowiz 08-19-2008 06:33 PM

Wonder what happened to the 75 yr old's other wife, to be having a 13 yr old daughter

Genchou 08-20-2008 09:25 AM

Oh my god... Poor girl having to be forced to marry an old old man. What kind of father is that... D=

Yoruhime 08-20-2008 02:56 PM

I don't even want to think about it..
If I were in that girl's position, I would probably slap that old man's face and then hopefully run away.. If not, suicide?

Cornflake 08-20-2008 03:11 PM

She should have put the bleach in the old mans soup.

Pretty common in poorer parts of the world.
It's kinda like a branch of human trafficking, if you ask me.

I wouldn't drink Bleach, I'd go jump in a lake because I can't swim.
