    It's worse than you think.

    New Jersey governor refuses to ban child marriage because 'it would conflict with religious customs' | The Independent

    Bear in mind that as a minor the girls involved (and not just in this state) cannot take on a lawyer to help them, if they run away they get returned to their parents if they go to a women's shelter asking for help they can't protect them as they are open to being prosecuted themselves for kidnapping and as a minor it is the parents that give consent on her behalf so even if she objects her opinion has no standing these is no access to family planning for a child. Just remember there are the same religious groups that lament the decline in moral standards only the rel;igious could find child marriage defensible..

    I had to go do some research. I always assumed that all the states had fairly restrictive laws around Age of consent for marriage.

    Damn! Was I surprised.

    One of the anti Muslim rants is that Mohamed took a child bride, American idiots haven't even got that anymore.

    They're both examples of religious fundamentalism.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    The United States has signed the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), but is the only United Nations member state that is not a party to it. They haven't ratified it for, amongst other reasons it would interfere with the freedom of religion that also allows child marriage. It's the same twisted logic, it wopuld also mean the right to try children as adults and impose the death penalty would be at risk.

    It's an old argument who is responsible for the child and when is it right and the right right of the state to intervene. The concept of individual rights is not one you will find any religious fundamentalist supporting. It's the same with the rigts of women eve's curse is so ingrained in our culture we don't even see it any more and religious fundamentalists just love it..
