Kansas Legislature Says No One Under 16 Can Marry
Nobody under age 16 will be able to marry in Kansas under legislation worked out by that state’s House and Senate negotiators this past Wednesday. The legislation was triggered by a case where a 22-year-old man got a 14-year-old girl pregnant and married her in that state. Under the legislation, persons 16 and 17 can marry if they have parental or judicial permission. Source. The Wichita Eagle, AP, kansas.com.
