I wonder what Gov Chris Christie would think of a 15 year old and a 40 year old...

And thus Chris Christie slipped into the deepest darkest pits of obscurity come next election round.

This should be political suicide.

Crap like this just makes my opinion stronger - All religion is BS! And should never be involved in politics/legal systems.. no matter the reason. If we, as a society, let religion dictate our values/morals then we are in deep trouble.. no matter the rule, no matter the religion.

 New Jersey couples may get married as young as 16 with parental consent, while minors younger than 16 also need the approval of court. If the parties do not have parental consent, both parties must be at least 18 years of age.

I think in Hawaii you can be 14. It's a difficult subject, and I'm not sure what to think about it, because as I get older, I like older guys. I have never been interested in men under 24, except when I was under 18, so I don't get it.
I don't think a 60 year old should be marrying a 14 year old under any circumstances, but people will do what they want without the courts.
I think I'm ok under certain circumstances if a 14 year old gets married to someone up to 17 or 18.
I think I'm ok if a 16 year old marries someone up to 22 or 23.
After 18 you can do what you want, but under 14 I don't think is ok under any circumstances.
I know it's only a four year window from 14-18 but this is another reason we don't want Sharia Law, so we don't have 60 year olds marrying 3 year olds. There needs to be a line drawn somewhere. I understand that a 12 year old is very well into puberty, but it's still a developing phase. Why do they HAVE to get married right now anyway? They can wait til their 18 and no harm will be done upon them. It isn't like they're really even paying taxes or fully integrated into the system to where it will matter anyway. 18 is a good number to shoot for, and if it lasts, great. Time goes by so fast, I don't see the big deal on making them wait until they're 18. I think that's reasonable. But I suspect people will continue to push the boundaries and marry as young as 3 or 4 just because they're sick. We definitely cannot allow that.

Religions were the original forms of governing society.  They are essentially designed to control people who are either ignorant or refuse to think for themselves.  In many cases, that is a GOOD thing!  However, the concept of religion is now obsolete, and inadequate to address the issues facing the modern world.   Religions are at best some "good ideas" and should not be extended beyond that. 

Unfortunately, we are in the situation where about half the population is incapable of distinguishing "right" from "wrong", and that is going to be a bigger problem in the future.

Currently in Hawaii, you have to be 18 to be married without parental consent, 16 with parental consent. 
It's quite ironic that until Pope Francis, the age of consent according to the Vatican was 12!

Down voting shows that liberals are nothing more than partisan hacks.
