It may be shocking for you to learn that childhood marriage is still legal in parts of the US. Stand with those who advocate that the minimum age for marriage be set at 18, no exceptions. Join the petition and invite your friends to participate.

Between 2000 and 2015, over 260,000 minors were legally married in the United States. As an example, the age of marriage in Florida is 18, but if you’re pregnant or have a child, a judge can approve a marriage at any age to a man of any age. You’ve read correctly. Any age. And yes, it happens.
