    That's the chance an older partner takes. The bloom can wear off the rose.

    Apparently as I recall, her mother was all for this union. He's an actor, a B actor, but in Hollywood nonetheless, and Mommy and the blushing bride saw him as her ticket to the big time.

    Sixteen's damned well old enough to make decisions about your own life, and the most basic "family value" is that adults get to choose whom to marry.

    Age of consent laws in some states is 16 and a minor can be married by parental consent. Nothing illegal, but it goes along with what I've been saying that we need an age that adulthood happens for everything. If that is 16, 18, or 21 it needs to be consistant IMO.

    Personally I think large age-gap marriages have serious issues due to generational gaps and usually they don't last very long.

    Your facetiousness is pretty transparent.

    Of course they should not be banned. That's a pretty silly question.

    It is disturbing that she is/was 16, but legally she is old enough in at least some states. I'd say that they probably should have waited a few years at least.

    Now, that being said, I highly doubt the relationship could really be a mature relationship, at least at this time. She is simply too young and he is already showing he'd rather have a trophy wife than a mature (mentally, not necessarily in age) wife in a mature relationship.

    It is a pretty good assumption that this is not a healthy relationship (although I'm not saying that this should really make it illegal either, particularly when they are adults). You rarely, if ever, see a mature man with an ugly, homely or even average looking younger woman (with this huge age gap of more than a decade) unless it is some religious thing where there are multiple wives.

    Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.
