NJ: No child brides in N.J.: Senate approves ban on minors getting married
NJ.com – March 13, 2017
The Senate approved the legislation by a 26-to-5 vote, four months after the Assembly approved the bill. It now goes to Gov. Chris Christie who will decide whether to sign (A3091) into law. New Jersey would be the first state in the nation to remove all exceptions that require minors to wait until they are 18 years old to get married.
