Thank God for Small Mercies!

Thank God for Small Mercies!

Take a look at this news item in Fox News that was forwarded to me by a dear friend:

I had actually seen a brief version of the same in Economic Times a couple of days back:

Toddlers can no longer marry in Arkansas

Arkansas' marriage-age crisis is over. A law that mistakenly allowed anyone — even toddlers — to marry with parental permission was repealed by a measure signed into law on Wednesday, ending embarrassment for the state and confusion for county clerks. Lawmakers didn't realise until after the end of last year's regular session that a law they approved, intended to establish 18 as the minimum age for marriage, instead removed the minimum age to marry entirely.

Good to know that child marriage is illegal once more at Arkansas!!!
