    Despite every state having an age of consent from 16-18.

    Age of consent is not a blanket law that covers marriage age, bud. You'd know that if you even just read the information in the OP, nevertheless did your own research.

    Wow. This is why I find it hard to believe in politicians. Argue about money for a wall or DACA or universal health care or whatever, but kids getting married to grown adults? No need to ever discuss.

    "Despite".

    It's obviously not a blanket law, 'loopholes' need to be closed.

    While most states set 18 as the minimum marriage age, exceptions in every state allow children younger than 18 to marry, typically with parental consent or judicial approval. How much younger? Laws in 27 states do not specify an age below which a child cannot marry.

    Unchained At Last, a nonprofit I founded to help women resist or escape forced marriage in the United States, spent the past year collecting marriage license data from 2000 to 2010, the most recent year for which most states were able to provide information. We learned that in 38 states, more than 167,000 children — almost all of them girls, some as young as 12 — were married during that period, mostly to men 18 or older.

    Twelve states and the District of Columbia were unable to provide information on how many children had married there in that decade. Based on the correlation we identified between state population and child marriage, we estimated that the total number of children wed in America between 2000 and 2010 was nearly 248,000.

    What's crazy is that those brides have a much higher chance of being happy and content individuals as they go through life than your average western, liberated woman.

    It specifically said that "in weighing petitions for spouses or fiancees, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services goes by whether the marriage is legal in the home country and then whether the marriage would be legal in the state where the petitioner lives."

    The issue here would seem to be with arranged marriage, not "child brides."

    Tragically, a lot of 'liberated' women end up lonely and depressed in their 30's because they are overworked in an empty career, struggling with a substance abuse problem, looking weird because of plastic surgery and sterile due to years of birth-control and abortions. They bought into the false promise pushed by the degenerate society that promiscuity and corporate success would bring them happiness. When they finally realize that marriage and raising a family is what would have made them happy it is too late. All that is left for them is bitterness, weight-gain and wearing pussy hats at meaningless women's rights marches.

    Reaction before understanding is the work of evil. The arrogant mind leading the heart.

    The article states that for these visas to be approved, two things must be true:

    1. The marriage must be legal in their home country.
    2. The marriage must be legal in the state they reside in the US.

    This sounds like New York, Virginia, and Maryland have to change their laws to get with the rest of the US.

    Here is a list of "age of marriage" in each state:

    To put your repressive theocracy dreams on hold for a second, is this really that closely related to the subject(s) of arranged marriages and child brides?

    It's a disgrace and makes it look like it's actually some mainstream accepted thing when there are laws on the books in every state with a 'general' minimum age of 16-18 for both marriage and sexual consent, yet with so many contradictory "loopholes" and exemptions to be exploited?

    If only they would have been attracted to real men like you and TCK you all could have been happy and not wasted your lives.

    It shouldn't be hard for everyone to agree that we need to close these loopholes, and we need to stop letting these people into our country?

    Can the War Room agree on something as simply and obvious as this?

    When I think about how many American men's lives are completely trashed for having sex with a 15 year old when they are 20.. You can't have a sex offender registry for American guys, and an incentive program from scumbags from Pakistan.. Who are also committing incest. Enough pretending their incest shit is ok. I had hot cousins I wouldn't have touched. It's gross.
