Quote:
From 2001 to 2015, over 16,000 children under the age of 18 married in Florida, the second highest rate in the US for that period. Child marriage is linked to higher rates of dropping out of school, poverty, domestic violence and mental and physical health disorders. It is time something was done! A bill was just introduced in Florida’s state legislature which would end child marriage. Please email Florida lawmakers to tell them to support the bill and protect Florida’s girls.

Didn't your "Perfect Man" marry a 6 year old? Isn't child marriage a huge problem in muzzie countries?

And yet you're mad about a 17 year old getting married in Florida. :lol:

It seems the author doesn't understand that "linked" is not "causes".

There are no laws explicitly addressing forced or child marriages, and both remain a significant problem in the Palestinian Territories. Recent reports found that around 35% of marriages registered in Gaza in 2012 involved girls under the age of 17, with poverty and unemployment contributing to the problem. Testimonials from girls and women gathered by NGO’s document that many are forced into marriage against their will. Intra-family marriages are often forced upon girls in order to keep the family wealth from being transferred outside the extended family, and girls who do not agree to such marriages are often made to give up their inheritances.

Don't get me wrong, marriage done right is a great social benefit. Done badly, it can be all of the things that are wrong with how we treat each other.

There is a consistent correlation between poverty, and child pregnancy and marriage

Yes there is. If one drops out of school and has children as a single parent, one can expect a lifetime of poverty. That is a very difficult hole to climb out of.

It is the ultimate wet dream for American liberals. More dependence on the State. More democRat voters.

I have no idea about the dems but left politics is usually about helping the more downtrodden of society

Not if you look at the results of their policies. What they claim, and what actually happens are vastly different.

Leftust politics helps politicians and bureaucrats.

In the US maybe but Europe is very left and we seem to have all the countries that are the most free, best healthcare, lower violence etc etc so it's not left politics that's the problem
