The fact remains, as it's been said, the study is almost 20 years old, therefore irrelevant to current times. There's also more extenuating circumstances than marriage to this, such as social life and whatnot.

Marriage is not the shield many idiots want to think it is. It does not stop sex, it does not stop abortion, and it does not stop adults from having fun.
It doesn't stop incest and child sexual abuse either.

A man can marry as many times as is necessary.
A "man" or an individual?

What if the husband rapes his wife? What if the husband is abusive to his wife and kids?

Does the two year waiting time apply for men or just women?

So a women should only be able to marry three times, but a man can marry as often as he wants to? So what is the woman to do if she is in her third marriage and she wants a divorce because her husband is cheating? Should she be allowed to divorce him or should she be forced to stay married to him?

Early marriage?
Does that mean an 14 year old girl marrying a 50 year old man like they did back then?

I knew you had an agenda.
Perhaps he's looking for several young teen wives to uhh.... 'protect'.

I think he's referring to the Dark Ages.

"Approximately 10-14% of married women are raped by their husbands in the United States. Approximately one third of women report having 'unwanted sex' with their partner. Historically, most rape statutes read that rape was forced sexual intercourse with a woman not your wife, thus granting husbands a license to rape. On July 5, 1993, marital rape became a crime in all 50 states, under at least one section of the sexual offense codes. In 20 states, the District of Columbia, and on federal lands there are no exemptions from rape prosecution granted to husbands. However, in 30 states, there are still some exemptions given to husbands from rape prosecution. In most of these 30 states, a husband is exempt when he does not have to use force because his wife is most vulnerable (e.g., she is mentally or physically impaired, unconscious, asleep, etc.) and is unable to consent. Women who are raped by their husbands are likely to be raped many times, often 20 or more times. They experience not only vaginal rape, but also oral and anal rape. Researchers generally categorize marital rape into three types; force-only rape, battering rape and sadistic."

For some it is, but not for most. Why this war against biology?
The pre-frontal cortex is not fully developed for females until about 24 yrs old and for males about 27 yrs old.

Spoiler

And for uber conservatives - it never seems to develop at all. *grin*

The Internet is a wonderful thing....a person can look up all kinds of "information" to suit their agenda.

Identities are hidden to some extent so Scared Little men With Tiny Weinie Syndrome can promote their hatred (FEAR) of women to their hearts content and their family and friends may never know what hatred burns in their shriveled hearts.

They can't come right out and say, "I hate and fear women , I must crush them so I feel better about my loser self!"....so they hide it, shivering in fear and nip away like those little yappy dogs ....
