4. I'll say yes....just because it will eliminate the interstate issue...
I.E., someone taking a minor from State A, where it's illegal, over to state B, where the age is lower, to "cohabitate." And vice versa, a couple from a state where the age is lower wouldn't face the reverse problem in a state where the age is higher.
