There is something so disturbing and disgusting about it and not that long ago women in the US were peddled off at a very early age.

I signed but we need to do something about America !st.
In the 50 states
The general age of marriage is 18 in every state, with the exception of Nebraska (19) and Mississippi (21).
However, every state except Delaware and New Jersey allows exceptions to their general age of marriage in one or more of the following cases:
Consent of a court clerk or judge (sometimes the consent of a superior court judge, rather than a local judge, is required)
Consent of the parents or legal guardians of the minor
If the minor is pregnant
If the minor has given birth to a child
If the minor is emancipated
So, given one or more of these exceptions, as of October 2018:
18 states have no minimum age of marriage in some cases.
2 states have a minimum age of 14.
5 states have a minimum age of 15.
19 states have a minimum age of 16.
6 states have a minimum age of 17.
