Dude, there’s no way that’s anything but a hoax/joke. Have you read the testamonials?

Alex has already posted a story on the front page—it’s under “Marry Our Daughter.”

By the way, the central premise is somewhat flawed anyway. In most states you can’t get married when you’re 13 even with parental consent. In the state I live in, for example, you can’t get married when you are younger than 16 unless you get the permission of a judge. Here’s a table from the Cornell School of Law summarizing the laws from state to state:

The exception, oddly enough, is New Hampshire. New Hampshire?

Ok… I “proposed” to “Kristin J”
(cute redhead on the first page - like you guys expected me to…)


What a bargain at $49,995 tongue wink

Don’t preach to me about age differences and such… she needs a good father figure.


Her darling parents…

What’s interesting is that a year after Alex did the first article…Tobester brings it up again…and then on another board I visit…someone THERE found it.  How strange is that…that it gets new interest at the “same time” 2 years in a row??  Hmmm…

Good luck on that, Joe.  Maybe you can even start a harem of red-heads.  Perhaps you could convince Carlotta to be the symbolic chief wife.  wink

I’m probably in a minority here in not seeing a problem with arranged marriages for girls of this age or even younger.  However, there is a considerable difference between the bride’s parents arranging a marriage with a long-established family friend, and the parents marrying off their child to some total stranger.  Which is why if anything like this website were to actually be real, I would be worried.
