More than 200,000 children married in US over the last 15 years
Girls as young as 10 were among the minors who wedded under legal loopholes




More than 200,000 children were married in the US over the past 15 years, new figures have revealed.

Three 10-year-old girls and an 11-year-old boy were among the youngest to wed, under legal loopholes which allow minors to marry in certain circumstances.


The minimum age for marriage across most of the US is 18, but every state has exemptions – such as parental consent or pregnancy – which allow younger children to tie the knot.

people like you don't care to read the contents but they rather focused only on the headline.....

those children there married because or with the help of "legal loopholes" which is very much accepted there in the US......

they are not being taken by one 83 year old Alhaji as a knacking machine....... they are not forced to get married rather it's through their mutual and parental consent; not the other way round as we see in your region...


try to understand what the massage is.... before spilling your ill informed brain to the world...

In US, it is children marrying children.
Though in Nigeria we tend to condemn similar case by ignorantly claiming it doesn't happen in civilised climes, however, the one we mostly condemn is when old adult marry minor in Nigeria.

Atleast this report have clarified United State is not exactly what we think it is.

US, where civilisation has eroded wisdom for normalcy.
When they aren't Almajiris.
Why allow kids freedom to the extent of marriage?
A new survey should let's know if the marriages are still intact.
Maturity in age is compulsory criteria for marriage.

Did you read where they wrote 'due to legal loopholes?' It shows a society that has identified a problem in its legal system, a society that will continue to work to make things work out so they can protect the minors eventually. Children should be protected by all means.

Just shut up already, you are just pained because you never expected such news from US.

The hypocrisy and double standard of the West and their collaborators will not remain hidden forever.

A careful read shows convention doesn't make it correct as it has been said to be due to loopholes.. So no need for excitement or any form of validation to whom it may concern

In 15 years?? I bet the North must have at least Quadrupled that number in the same time frame. Take note that USA is a bigger country and the North is 19 states of one country like that. When you do the percentage, you'll realise how screwed they are.

US was Christian country. Now Islamic people are leading everywhere. They born children like rat as part of their strategy to take over the world. Every law in the US presently is done to favor they. So they will soon take over US, Make Christians sit down and watch like fools.

Christians claim they are not of this world but they are in the world now. When they die they where no that heaven is not because you claim you are a Christian.

Stop being an @$$hole!

You quoted half of what he wrote...the only part that suits your narrative.

This is what the guy wrote:
they are not forced to get married rather it's through their mutual and parental consent; not the other way round as we see in your region...

what he wrote means 'the two under-age children agree to marry each other (mutual consent) and
their adults parents also agreed to the under-age marriage (Parental consent).

Some of you just disappoint me with your level of intelligence or lack of one.

No sensible adult should support the marriage of 10yr olds or any under-age but it is even worse when "Peodophile Adults" prey on under-age 10-11 year old girls, in the name of marriage
