    It looks like a traditional from the stone age and there is no solution for it .

    Soon European states will lower the age of consent to 9 or 10. They’ll have to, otherwise flames and rioting.

      Anyone on this thread know what the legal age for marriage is, in Canada at present? One of my current research projects was to prepare 15 access-to-information requests (ATIRs) to various federal government departments as to polygamous marriages. But this winter I want to do the same thing for underage marriages in Canada. One would think that there are both polygamous and underage marriages in our country now — given heavy Muslim immigration.

        According to Wiki for marriage, it is 16, same as age of consent for sexual activity (Harper gov’t. has long been under pressure by various activist groups to lower age of consent to 14).

          We’re a society in decline. I only hope the pendulum will swing in the other direction at some point.

          I think consent was 14 but Harper made it 16 again.

        I told my daughters it’s 21, same age I told them they had to be to date.

          Don’t know what I did in my younger days to have all daughters. Really, I wasn’t that bad, was I ?
