So close! But the second state, Kentucky, that tried to ban child brides is blocked. By Shariah Mullahs? nope! by the ultra conservative group Family Foundation. Kentucky has about 700 child-bride marriages a year, and 10000 children have been married-off there since 2000. No relief for these kids I guess.
I know I am going to take another load of grief for this but if it helps people understand that this is not OK, I will take that load every day for the rest of my life.
