A Florida lawmaker said she'd like to put a stop to all marriages in the state from going forward if the partners aren't at least 16 years old.
"In 2012, we had a 13-year-old groom in the state of Florida," Miss Stafford said after the committee hearing, the Sentinel reported. "I have a hard time wrapping my head around that. Here, we have a 13-year-old going through puberty, who now is a husband because, apparently, he made a baby. I just don't think that should be the policy of this state."
Rep. Cynthia Stafford, a Democrat who represents Miami, said that marriage should be like driver's licenses when it comes to legal age limits.
