Have you ever seen the ages of consent across the United States? Sixteen is the norm.

I am not sure of the current numbers, but the age of consent for marriage, with parental consent, is even lower across most of the US. In the early-mid 1990s (when last I checked), it was 12 in Alabama and 14 in Arizona.[/quote:1x114ivr]

[color=darkblue:1x114ivr]Eek! Wow, I had no idea it was that low in other states. I’ve never heard of anyone under 18 being married in California.[/color:1x114ivr]
