    Hi,

    Can any of you US citizens enlighten a european on the age of consent (sexual) in the USA.

    The reason I ask is that I always thought it was 18 or so but I glimpsed a bit of a chat show in which I think I heard one of the guests say she was married at 13 and became pregnant within a few months of this. Is this something that varies from state to state?

    It does vary by state but nowhere is it as low as 13.

    I suspect the guest was probably from some rogue Mormon sect or something like that.

    Yeah... ummm... that Mormon thing right there...bad JuJu. we don't go like that. In fact we have strict rules against that crap... And we don't marry multiple wives... and we also don't have horns growing out of our heads. We're pretty much normal people who don't drink alcohol, or coffee, don't have sex before marriage, and don't watch rated R movies. Oh, we usually don't cuss. You know, had to bring it up. I won't go any further with it, but... we usually get married between 19 and 26. oh... so does the rest of the U.S.

    Now hold on there. There's still a few sects out there based on the old Mormon church that don't follow the official doctrine of the LDS church. Those were the guys I was talking about. That's why I used the word "rogue."
