Siem Reap, Cambodia News: A 53-year-old man, Soth Ouksa, filed a complaint on February 09, 2019,to request a dowry refund of US$6000 from his 17-year-old wife who left him.

According to an old man, he married his young wife, Chan Sotheary, in March 2018, but they didn't get on together and they argued with each other every day. Then his wife left home without telling him, so he decided to file a complaint to ask for the dowry to be refunded.

The father of his wife said that he didn't know much about the complaint, as he was busy recently. He added that if his daughter wasn't happy, she could leave her husband, and he wouldn't force her to do anything.

If you marry a 17 yo when you are over 50 then you don’t deserve better

To be fair, he doesn't look particularly excited either.. And what's that lady spraying on him? Has he got
Spoiler:
body odour
hence why the bride is looking and breathing the other way? thumbdown

Look, let's face it....forget about the age gap...it's just a case of poor personal hygiene which caused them to argue daily. Now being an older dude, he's a bit set in his ways..sorta like trying to teach an old dog new tricks..and he just doesn't wanna use deodorant.

No wonder the girl wants out.. :dragonchase:
