167,000 children, some as young as 12, were married between 2000 and 2010 in the USA.
No! That is something you seem to have missed.
IN THE USA
New Jersey nearly passed a law to prevent marriage below 18 but it was vetoed by Governor Christie because "we don't want to impinge on the cultural traditions of New Jerseyans."
But this is factual sort of stuff - nothing you would be wanting to watch.
Other sources for the same information - plenty - just Google or, for example:
and how about this Whodey:
And a separate Statista chart plotting the minimum legal age of marriage for girls worldwide reveals that the US is one of the lowest on record, with several places - including Massachusetts - allowing girls as young as 12 to be wed with the consent of a judge.
It is matched only by Saudi Arabia and Yemen, where age of consent for marriage ranges between nine and 13 years old.
Not for nothing do we refer to the American Taliban.
