State senators in West Virginia have rejected a bill that would have banned underage marriage in all circumstances. The measure in question was voted down 9-8 this week by the state Judiciary Committee. Minors in West Virginia as young as 16 can tie the knot with parental permission. Any younger and a waiver from a judge is required. The state House has already overwhelmingly passed the bill that would no longer allow those under 18 to get married.
