i read this tragic story on mailonline about this 90-year-old saudi man who paid $17,000 as dowry for some irresponsible parents to wed their 15-year-old daughter! yes, 90 VS 15!!
this story reminded me of benjamin button.. imagine that when the girl was born the guy was 75!! they probably have learned the same things at the same time, like trying to stay clean, eat properly, speak clearly, walk carefully, count their teeth.. a bit like benjamin and daisy when they were kids..
the poor girl barricaded herself in a room and escaped the very night of her wedding and grandpa is
sewing suing the parents to get his dowry back!
is this some kind of a trade? how can her parents accept such a deal? beats me...
