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.
