(Newser) – A love affair between two teens in Bangladesh ended in tragedy after the 16-year-old girl's family married her off to a man twice her age. The girl and her 17-year-old boyfriend tied their hands together with a scarf and jumped to their deaths from a mobile phone tower, the Daily Mail reports. Police say the boy called his brother and told him they were committing suicide on Valentine's Day so they could stay together forever.
