Sent messages to my senator and representitives, tho the 2 democrates need no prompting (they have really great records) and the 1 (newly elected) Republican couldn't care, unless the child marriages were Gay!

I could not sign the petition Pity because this an international problem.It is an archiac custom that should be abolished the world over,The victims who suffer most are the little girls who are quite often married to old men and endure lives beyond description.They are old at thirty, if they survive that long, and dead at forty.

Forced childmarriages are inexcusable and unacceptable and do need to be stopped. These girls deserve protection, so thank you so much for this petition and article Cher.
Noted, signed with U.S address and will forward shortly...

I wonder how men who need to force marriage can still even live with themselves... or want to be married to someone they KNOW didn't choose them. That is besides the point here however... Not to be mistaken.

Very sad. I look at my 15 year old and cannot imagine her marrying and bearing children. Very disturbing.

Signed and noted...thank you Cher, and thank you Sandra, for forwarding to me! Child marriage has a devastating effect on girls, on their communities, and on global society as a whole. When children are denied an education and turned into breeders and/or sex slaves and forced laborers, it ruins the potential of half of the world's people--and probably more, when you consider the ripples of misery it creates in the girl's subsequent children and other family members! I so hope this act can be passed and that it's effective.
