Quick! To the altar!

Better hurry to Moldova now, as soon it’ll be illegal to get a UK visa for your teen mail order bride. Goddamn government, taking away all our harmless pleasures… Pervy comments aside, though, this is a morally appalling idea.

If an 18-year-old is an adult, imposing additional age-related restrictions on 18 to 21-year-olds is inherently wrong: by granting them adult status, we accept that they in a position to make their own decisions in life. Approaching it from the other angle, if 18-year-olds aren’t mature enough to decide who to marry, they certainly shouldn’t be allowed to decide who runs the government.
