New Minimum Marriage Age in Kansas

Kansas' governor signed a measure Wednesday setting 15 as the minimum marriage age, prompted by the case of a pregnant 14-year-old from Nebraska who came to the state to marry her 22-year-old boyfriend.

CNN Article.

In the old days, 14 years was pretty much "marrying" age for girls. Based on the 14 year old girls I know today, I can't imagine the girls of yore were as ill-prepared for marriage as those of today.

I don't know what is so magic about 15--it's either arbitrary or one year older than the girl mentioned in the story.
