25. Sick! "The 'ugly' reality of child marriage in the U.S."

From CBS News last year:
"In a survey of marriage licenses compiled by Unchained At Last, at least 167,000 children under 18 were married in the U.S. between 2000 and 2010. (That number is likely on the conservative side, as Unchained At Last could obtain age data from only 38 U.S. states.)

The vast majority of those children were girls married off to adult men, Reiss said."

Read whole article, please:
https://www.cbsnews.com/news/child-marriage-in-the-u-s-surprisingly-widespread/

Then see the chart on Wikipedia on
"Age of marriage in the United States."
The exceptions, my gawd!



And this shit is supported by "good christian" folk! All Hump45 voters, I'm sure.
