    Large age gap marriages - Icky?

    Should marriages between people where the age gap is 20+ years be banned because you find it icky?

    Case in point:

    Courtney Stodden, age 16 married a guy ages 51.

    EDIT: Oh Hum..I guess she did admit she got implants.

    Yeah... that's disgusting.

    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.

    I think if one of both is underage, yes. When they're both mature, no. In the case which you've linked i'd ban it, though I must say she looks far from 16 y/o.

    Alas, he probably has a bunch of money.

    I think there should be no restrictions on the marriage decisions of legal adults. That being said, 16 is not a legal adult and this guy belongs in prison.

    I assume it's legal wherever they are.

    And I assume they are both sane and consenting.

    So I have little problem with it and it is none of my business.

    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.

    Where did you read that her parents didn't give permission?

    40%? The rate has been going down.

    I could be wrong.

    According to this link, the divorce rate in America is 40-50% for first time marriages and about 60% for second time marriages.

    Geez...that is pretty pathetic.

    EDIT: Oh Hum..I guess she did admit she got implants.
    Isn't the story of her being 16 years old a bit out of date?

    3 years later (I just checked) they have had a split, she's dated other guys and decided she wants to be back with him.

    Hard to make a moral decision when someone is legally classed as an adult when they decide to marry someone any age older than them.
