Surely authorities should raise the age. What makes it scary is the thought of have people tried to get married younger than that and been stopped by the government?

It worries me more when you hear of people in the 1400's etc and their child-bride. What kind of man wants to marry a 13 year old?!  :o

Well if its a marriage into a royal line then perhaps. Just because youre married doesnt mean you have to do what married couples do does it!

Or does it? Were you expected to produce children back in the 1400's as soon as you were married?
