    51 year old marries 16 year old, good or bad?

    What do you think? Gross marrying such a young girl or good on him for snagging something that will stay bonable for ages?

    51 YEAR-OLD ACTOR MARRIES 16-YEAR-OLD
    June 21, 2011,

    He's a B-grade American actor, having starred alongside Tom Hanks in 'The Green Mile,' and she's a former beauty pageant queen who is now aspiring to be a country singer.

    Sounds like a pretty stereotypical Hollywood couple, except he is 51, and she is 16.
    Doug Hutchison married Courtney Stodden in Las Vegas – how fitting - last month, with the teenager now working to position herself as a potential Nashville star after running for Miss Teen Washington USA last year.

    How is this legal you ask?

    In the United States the 'age of majority' – or age when minors become legally independent form their parents – is 18. Some states are even more stringent, holding the legal age of adulthood as 19 or even 21.

    However, this age can be lowered in situations where for example the teen graduates from high school early or has permission from parents. And this is this case for Courtney Stodden.

    A spokeswoman for the couple did not respond to questions; however Courtney's mother, Krista Stodden, explained that she signed a consent form so that her daughter could marry Hutchison.

    Krista told Radar: "They are very much in love and we are so supportive of this."

    The documentation is important for the marriage, as without it the union would not be legal.

    Family law specialist and Nachshin & Langlois partner, Joe Langlois, said: "If there was a valid parental consent, then they're now legally married in every way.

    "There are no magic words involved, just, essentially, 'I, the parent, give consent,'" Langlois confirmed.

    The only possibly legal glitch that the couple may face is that Courtney Stodden's father did not sign the legal consent form. If he is her legal guardian, it is possible that the marriage can be nullified.

    While time will tell how long this marriage lasts, the newlyweds have stood up against the storm of controversy that they have ignited.

    "We're aware that our vast age difference is extremely controversial," the couple said through their spokeswoman.

    "But we're very much in love and want to get the message out there that true love can be ageless."

    If they make it to their 50th wedding anniversary, we wonder if Hutchison will be able to dance the 'funky chicken' at age 101.

    Here in Australian we call it child molestation when it is that young.

    IMO Fling him in jail until she's 21.

    Yes, but do you actually punish people for that in your godless prison colony?

    True, but a lot of things were normal in the past but frowned upon now. Blood feuds, for example.

    Aside from antisocial nerds, bible-thumpers, and the truly fugly, most 16 year olds are already boning. Who cares about this one?

    I think you're just jealous that an ugly middle aged dude is nailing a sexy ass teen.

    Acting like she's underage is ridiculous. Biologically she's ready to get ****ed. Her mom gave permission so it's all good and legal. Why does everybody suddenly become all prudish about **** like this? It's like Ecofarm took over your brains or something.

    Felch, I already pointed out that she would still be young when he dies, and she'll have bucks. It could be worse.

    I guess what disturbs me the most about this, is that the mother signed a consent form. Whoring out yourself is one thing. Whoring out your daughter is just sad.
    I know in a lot of cultures, 16 is old for women, but if some 51 year old clown had come to ask for my daughter when she was a sophomore in High School, I would have gone out and bought a gun.

    I can certainly agree with this sentiment. I simply cannot envision having enough in common with a 16 year old to sustain a solid relationship fi you are 51.

    Now . .. if I were single and seeking a hookup, I could see the attraction of a much younger woman but even then I would probably feel it was a bit creepy if she was less than mid 20s

    51 year old marries 16 year old, good or bad?
    for the 51 year old, certainly good.

    Wanting to **** hot 17 or 16 year olds =/= paedophile. Any man who claims he dosen't feel sexual attraction is a liar or a homoesexual. Pedophiles are sick in the head because they want to have sex with children, not teens.
