    Case in point:

    Courtney Stodden, age 16 married a guy ages 51.

    EDIT: Oh Hum..I guess she did admit she got implants.
    They were married a few years ago and are already divorced.

    No. Nothing should be banned simply because it is "icky". Was that not the basis for wanting to ban SSM and interracial marriage? When setting the legal age of consent I would favor age 18 (for being an adult) but not because it is "icky" but because it is consistent with voting and military service. For some reason folks seem to want multiple age limits for defining when one is an adult for purposes of voting, drinking, driving, signing a legal contract and getting a tattoo.

    I don't think it should be banned but it's gross as **** and we should look down upon it.
    But again, the poll is a failure because it doesn't relay all options, like mine, that yes, it's gross but it shouldn't be banned.

    There is no way there's "love" there, maybe love of some kind... she loves his money, he loves her... physique... but not real love. It'll never last.



    It's all about control, just like a lot of things in life.

    Think about it.

    Yes but it's because women were -- and still are -- second class citizens.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Where did you read that anyone was marrying a 9 y/o?



    Do a little research.

    It's not unusual in some countries.

    Yes, she is a little young to be getting married but I have known a lot of 16-17 year old's that were more street wise and tough then most 30 year olds...so it depends on the person.
    And she does not look like an innocent babe in the woods.


    Yeah it's creepy...but if they both get what they want from it, it's okay by me.

    Besides, with a U.S. divorce rate near 40% (or higher)...who are most people to talk about who should marry who.


    BTW...if the guy thinks he looks cool having a 16 year old for a wife, he is delusional. When will all men learn that if the looks/age difference is too great, it just looks stupid.
    If she was early thirties and hot, that might look okay. But 16? Come on man...everyone knows she is either an idiot or in it for the money.
    And every time you have sex, she is thinking of her last young, attractive boy/girlfriend.



    How do you know this for a fact?

    Fill us in.

    It's OK they both look older than than are.

    She looks 30 and he looks 60.
