the ones under 18 should be considered child
the ones under 14 should be considered child
the ones under 21 should be coınsidered child
the ones over 14 should be allowed to marry too
the ones under 14 or 15 shouldnt be allowed to have sex if they are child
they are not child if they have physical maturity
they need both emotional and physical maturity to have sex
it depends on individual differences
l dont care
Personally, I think for some purposes, it should be 18, and for others, 21 or even higher. I think we kind of need an in-between stage where kids become partial guardians of themselves, rather than all at once on the 18th birthday.when should a person be considered adult ?
"The knowledge and prudence of the poor themselves, are absolutely the only means by which any general and permanent improvement in their condition can be effected." - Thomas Malthus
In some cultures it's done for a very specific purpose - polyandry (1 wife - many husbands) in some regions of India is adhered to between one wife and brothers. The brothers aren't married to each other - and they are permitted to marry one wife so when they have children they won't be expected to divide the family 'farm' up between them all . . .and so on. It allows a family to support itself on their land and subsist without conflicts of property and land disputes and without further reducing the size of the land the family owns.
If one does not want to engage in said practice - they have to move and find their own land. . .which is not as easy as it sounds: because most farm able and livable land is already owned.

l dont even support any marriage until they reach a necessary emotional maturity

nobody forced you to have sex when you were 16
why dont you accept it was your decision or fault
