New Jersey could become the first state in the nation to outlaw marriage for anyone under the age of 18.
A measure some have called the “ban child bride” bill is back and will likely face little resistance from lawmakers as it makes it way through the legislative process. That’s because they passed a similar bill last year with overwhelming bipartisan support.
