Is child marriage a problem in the US?

I hear about underage girls(including ones in White Christian communities) getting married to much older men.

So it's not just Muslim countries that have a problem with child marriage is it?

    It's unfortunately common in the south, in conservative Christian communities.  And it's especially prevalent in Mormon communities.

    It's illegal.  It is not a problem in  most of the U.S.  Just some isolated communities where some pedophile rounded up girls and made a community of them.  So-called marriage so that he could justify having sex (raping) them, buy the marriages were NOT legal, and the girls had no choice.  Those are dangerous cults.

    Those who wish to marry children will find the U.S. much more restrictive than many other countries.

    Child marriage is illegal in America.

    • But in most states, girls can get married under 18
