The 85 year old Duchess of Alba has an estimated wealth of between one and three billion dollars. She has decided to marry a 61-year-old civil servant, Alfonso Diez. She intends to give up everything prior to the marriage by giving her children an early inheritance because she is sure that Alfonso loves her rather than her money or to be sure that he marries her out of love.
As you’ll see from this comics strip, some marriages end exactly the same way they start.

Many girls in India get married when they are still kids. Children marriages are banned in this country, but they still happen. Government survey in 2006 reported that 45 % of Indian girls were married being younger than 18 years old. Local police raids child marriage ceremonies when it gets a chance because young girls who are forced to marry boys or old men are often at risk of violence and sexual abuse. Inside this post you can find photos of child brides taken by Reuters’ photographers.
