Child Bride (12) Rescinds Divorce from Husband (80)

Some figures, because words cannot do the deplorable nature of this story justice:

She is 12.

He is 80.

Her dowry was $22,000 (£14,174).

And obedience and patriarchy win the day, as a young girl sacrifices her childhood for the pleasure of an ancient male.
