    So SICK! Man "marries" 10 year old, claims legal

    This is sickening and infuriating. This guy is nothing but a filthy
    pedophile.

    From the article:

    A man who married a girl when she was 10 said Wednesday he did nothing illegal because, he argues, Canadian law allows people of any age to wed.

    Quebec court has ordered the man's name cannot be published to protect the identity of the girl, who is now 15. A court order has kept him away from his bride, stating their relationship compromised her safety.

    The man, who is now 52, said outside court that current laws make it possible to marry anyone - "even a baby" - because there is no minimum age.

    However, he also said "federal common law" puts the minimum age at seven years old.


    (The article goes on to say he is some kind of "pastor". Hmmm,
    God has an awful lot to say about people that harm children;
    so I wonder just who his god is to condone this...Anyway, it goes on
    to say that he planned on going into a marriage counseling ministry.
    Then the below comment...)

    "I need my wife at my side to do such a ministry," he said.

    What kind of a mother would allow this? Cult follower?
    That poor girl.

    Why did her parents 'allow' her to marry a 50 year old guy?

    So what is the age of consent in Canada? Sounds like there needs to be some changes in the law if he is speaking the truth, the filthy, pervert.

    AGE OF CONSENT IS WAY TOO LOW. It's 14. So maybe he can marry her but if he attempts sex, he's going to jail. Parental permission or not. This is really really sick.
