Americans need to work a bit harder to get the log out of their own eyes before they start dictating how other people may or may not live. Our society violates the human rights of all kinds of people all the time, including the rights of children, but we can just ignore that, because we think we are so superior...let's just tell everyone else how to live. And if they don't, we'll start bombing them whether we declare a war or not. So much for American moral superiority.

Another waste of taxpayer dollars. Child marriage is already against the law here in the US, so OUR tax dollars were spent to legislate something that is already against the law instead of being spent to address issues that should be getting addressed.

In case no one figured it out, child marriage is not an issue here, because of the existing age of consent laws, that have been in place for more than a century. It won't make a tinker's dam of difference in the foreign countries that allow this sort of thing, since OUR laws don't apply to foreign nations.

I guess that common sense really is a super power, since so few people actually have it.

We in the West do have laws prohibiting child marriages ,but some of the cultures that migrate to those countries -dont and -don't always follow their adopted countries laws-still applying their -own ,that is where they must be enforced -you cannot have two sets of laws governing a country.

Petition signed.

This is a petition for supporting this critical legislation and for raising awareness about the more than 60 million girls and young women in developing countries who are married before the age of 18.

Ty, Cher.
