Celebrating your tenth wedding anniversary at age 24.

Reading through my normal daily news stuff, I stumbled across this headline: Woman weds teen, spends honeymoon in jail. I knew that reading this was not going to be the best idea, but I couldn’t help but click on the link to read the story. Just like many of you either just did or will in a second. While reading this, two things popped into my head.

The first being, what is with this rash of older women sleeping with teenage boys? When I was a teenager, you never heard of stuff like this. Moreover, some of these women are actually good looking ladies. Can’t they find a man their age? What is the attraction of a teenage boy? It can’t be the financial security or their ability to provide. Think about it. They really have nothing to offer other then awkward teenage sex. Yet these women keep picking them up! Ladies, maybe you can help me understand the mentality there. If anyone has any clue as to why a woman would do this, please fill me in.

I’m not saying that when I was 15 I wouldn’t want some woman using me as her sex toy. I think that is every teenage boys dream. Stuff like this just never happened when I was a kid. This is a relatively new development in the last 10-15 years. If it did happen when I was younger, then the women where much better about keeping it concealed.

The second thing that stuck out to me was this little blurb:

”Under Georgia law, teenagers may marry as long as they are at least 16 and have the permission of a parent or guardian. Those restrictions are waived, however, when a female applicant is pregnant”

Okay… so if Bobby John 14 and Sally Mae 13 get it on and Sally is impregnated, they legally can marry in Georgia? That’s how I’m reading that. Is there a rash of teenage pregnancies in Georgia? I’m not saying that to be mean, I really want to know. When I was in Middle and High School, I remember girls and guys talking about getting married as soon as they turned 18. (You have to be 18 in Illinois). Some of these kids were really stupid; they were even talking about having babies.

In my mind, if this was the law in Illinois, I could see some of these couples talking it over and deciding they can’t wait until they where 16 to get married. They decide that since they want a baby anyway, they will have sex and get the girl pregnant. Some of you are probably thinking I’m exaggerating. No, trust me, I’m not. The four distinct couples I am thinking about I could see doing this. Why? In each case, the girl was pregnant by 15 because she wanted a baby!

If any of you are from Georgia and can answer the question on this law, I would appreciate it.

This kind of thing truly sickens me. Moreso because the female is an adult and should know better. Blech!

If I'm understanding the law correctly, yes. (

I'm from Georgia. Some of the girls I graduated high school with have kids in college; some of the girls are grandmothers. Not necessarily the same girls.

My oldest is only 6.

You think this is weird? You obviously missed the stories about the pastor of the church near Atlanta who, among other things, arranged marriages for females in his congregation when the girls were only 14 because that was the best way to prevent them from having sex out-of-wedlock. The marriages had to be performed in Alabama because even with parental consent, 14 is too young in Georgia - unless you're pregnant, which would defeat the whole "we want you to wait until you're married to have sex, but since we know you won't wait, we'll force you to get married really, really young. Whether you want to or not."

The older woman with the teenager... could be a couple of things. First - like men who are pedophiles - these women might be turned on by teens (maybe even boys - you never know about sick people's brains).

Or it could be a control issue - she can control a teen - especially a 14 year old who is looking at some regular s...e...x coming his way!

Hard to say. If this was a man - there would be people wanting to have him castrated... since it's a woman - she'll do her jail thing and then get back together with him.

I agree with Teresa - a control issue.
