  • Move west, oh Pedophiles

    Or East, you know, depending on where you are. Anyway, Colorado rules on the common law marriage age:

      So 250 years ago it was completely legal to marry 12 year old girls? (250 years ago is when English Common Law ruled the land, right?)

      edit:Wikipedia lists several states with the same rule as Colorado. Pretty strange...especially when it's illegal to have sex with one's spouse!

        No worries. When Sharia law takes over you can marry as many 12 year olds as you like and probably kill 'em without too much ado when you grow weary of their blah blah blah.

          250 years ago, most people didn't live to be 40 years old either. 12 probably seemed a lot closer to maturity then. Not that that would make it right in any case. Hopefully, the Colorado legislature will do something about this.

            That's not exactly correct...

            While life expectancy has increased dramatically over the past few centuries, and especially over the past two, this increase is largely attributed to decreases in birth, infant, and childhood mortality. Three centuries ago, if you made it out of adolescence, you were statistically expected to make it into your sixties if not seventies.

            There is actually decent evidence to support the theory that people actually live shorter lives in modern times once they make it past twenty or thirty - but only in very specific parts of the world.

              Not terribly surprising considering that pre modern medicine girls often married at 12-13 in order to maximize child production possibilities, as a vast number of babies/children died from any number of diseases and mishaps.
