Another horrible fact, many states in America children can get married, and it happens thousands of times per year. Places like Idaho are bastions for old men marrying little girls. The democrats tried to pass a bill making a mandatory minimum age of 18 for marriage, and the Republicans wholesale rejected it stating they didn't want it to be easier to get an abortion than it is to take a child bride.
