Tue 10-02-2015

An Egyptian newlywed asked for a divorce two months after she got married to a 60 year old man.

The woman explained to the court that her poor family wanted to get married to a 60 year old man for his money.

The bride also said that she is at the same age of his grandchildren, but she agreed to marry him because of his money, not thinking about the life she will live among his 3 wives and 12 children, who are all older than her.

The family did not accept her and treated her like a maid as she was the youngest in the family.

His sons even hit her, and she wasn't fed properly, at one point one of his sons broke her leg while beating her.
