Christie Won’t Completely Ban Marriage for Teens Under 18

4

Gov. Chris Christie said Thursday that he will veto the push to ban underage teens in New Jersey from getting married, and asked lawmakers to instead require a judge’s approval for some younger teens to get a marriage license.

The Republican said in a conditional veto of a bill passed by lawmakers in March that they should change it to require a judge to approve a marriage license for a 16- or 17-year-old. He would also prohibit a marriage license for anyone under 16.

Under current state law, 16- and 17-year-olds only need parental consent. Children under the age of 16 also need a state judge’s approval. Read more here.

  1. Remarkable. the same people who are in the process of destroying marriage,suddenly were so concerned about 17 years old getting married.

    Give ,at least, the Gov. Some credit

  2. But toeiva marriage is normal in the eyes of the blind media and politicians. Normal marriage they find needs restrictions. Hopefully once the Supreme Court becomes conservative the toeiva marriage will be outvoted.
