Yeah, But It's the Gays Who Are Destroying Marriage

How come the Georgia boys haven't mentioned this family values story?

ATLANTA (AP) - A 37-year-old woman who is seven months pregnant by her 15-year-old groom says she prefers older men, but the teenager aggressively wooed her. Lisa Clark, who is charged with child molestation, statutory rape and enticing a child for indecent purposes, said in television interviews Monday that she still hopes to make a life with him and their baby. . . .

Clark was arrested last month after the couple's Nov. 8 wedding. Georgia law allows children of any age to marry - without parental consent - if the bride-to-be is pregnant. The law dates to the early 1960s and was written to discourage out-of-wedlock births.

The true meaning of marriage: exploiting legal loopholes to stay out of prison.

(Thanks to Mrs. T for the heads up.)

We don't consider this odd in Georgia. Teach 'em good for trying to invest in education.

I believe it's spelled "edumacation."

So, does the 37 year old have to submit to the will of the 15 year old?

Yes, it takes all kinds, doesn't it? And laws can be so variable.


And too, there's this , which might be a case of a cradle robber inspired by love. Time will tell.

I can't find any articles now, but not long ago, Maryland lawmakers were a little embarrassed by their wed-at-any-age-if-you're-pregnant law when an 11-year-old got hitched to a 27-year-old, so they changed it. I think one has to be a ripe 15 now.

If, before agreeing to get married, a girl had to pick up her guy's socks or clean the kitchen after he cooked something, she wouldn't be so anxious to be married.

Indeed. And by the time that 11-year-old wife was 15 or 16, a lot more worldly wise and probably in a rebellious stage, I'll bet her 31- or 32-year-old hubby was ready for a quiet, rubber-lined room in an institution.

What you tryin' to say, Mrs. T? You don't like how I dirty 8 bowls, 5 plates, 14 spoons, and 2 sinks when I make an omelet?
