    -The humanitarian group World Vision reported that the number of girls in poor countries who marry before the age of 18 will double to 100 million in the next decade. The survey estimated that 3,500 girls worldwide marry before the age of 15. Bangladesh topped the list with 53% of new brides getting married before they can drive.

    The report went on to offer sage advice to girls who marry too young saying, “Move to America, you never know, your mother might be nominated to the Republican presidential ticket.”

    A step backward for womens' rights...

    Iraqi bill to legalize child marriage criticized
    14 Mar.`14 — A contentious draft law being considered in Iraq could open the door to girls as young as nine getting married and would require wives to submit to sex on their husband's whim, provoking outrage from rights activists and many Iraqis who see it as a step backward for women's rights.

    Gee you all are against 'traditional marriage?' Young women have always been married off about this age, it's normal, traditional and totally religious. ;)

    By the by, can get married here in MIssouri at 15 with parental consent as with an arranged marriage. So maybe instead of shining the spotlight on Muslim countries we outta take a look in the fucking mirror!

    "Issuance of license prohibited, when--parental consent, when required.

    451.090. 1. No recorder shall, in any event except as herein provided, issue a license authorizing the marriage of any person under fifteen years of age; provided, however, that such license may be issued on order of a circuit or associate circuit judge of the county in which the license is applied for, such license being issued only for good cause shown and by reason of such unusual conditions as to make such marriage advisable.

    2. No recorder shall issue a license authorizing the marriage of any male under the age of eighteen years or of any female under the age of eighteen years, except with the consent of his or her custodial parent or guardian, which consent shall be given at the time, in writing, stating the residence of the person giving such consent, signed and sworn to before an officer authorized to administer oaths.

    3. The recorder shall state in every license whether the parties applying for same, one or either or both of them, are of age, or whether the male is under the age of eighteen years or the female under the age of eighteen years, and if the male is under the age of eighteen years or the female is under the age of eighteen years, the name of the custodial parent or guardian consenting to such marriage. "
    Section: 451.0090 Issuance of license prohibited, when--parental consent, when required. RSMO 451.090

    Much as I'd like to leave Mrs. H. for a 15-18 year old, it ain't gonna happen.

    My final realization occurred to me just today, as I ordered the liver and onions from the senior menu.

    My dick done it's job long ago. Four kids and a grandchild (and another on the way).

    Life isn't exactly good, but it's fine by me.
