    Age is just a number, a measure of time if you will, not a measure of how grown up somebody is. They'll both get what they're after, don't take other people's business on your head.

    You're at least half right - he's getting what he's after, that's for sure.

    Age is a number, sure...

    It is also a measure of ones maturity (yes, I disagree with you). These two have grown up in entirely different eras, at entirely different points in their lives, and entirely different experiences. I have a hard time seeing how they have anything, except the superficials (oh you like music...ME TOO!! type of stuff lol), in common

    Sorry if I don't approve. This guy could very, very easily be her father.

    If he can't get women his own age, or somewhat close to it, something is wrong.

    I am willing to bet he just saw a HPOA and a girl who got all dreamy eyed to marry an actor

    Just my thoughts

    I agree. I'm not conservative by any means...but if my 16 year old daughter wanted to marry a 51 year old man there is no way in h*** that I would be signing off on anything. I would tell her to wait 2-3 years and then see what happens. If it's meant to be, then it will be meant to be when she is older (in age and maturity). But 51 & 16? Any bets on how long this lasts?

    Neither one of them look their age but I would have to say this marriage won't last long. This is a big age gap. Her parents are just looking at dollar signs because I just don't see any parent letting their 16 year old daughter marry a 51 year old man.

    most parents wouldn't be exactly thrilled about her video as well (a 'friday' competitor, i'd say :eek:).
    what is the age limit for marriage, even wit the parents consent? although she certainly is a very mature-looking girl.
    in any case, good luck to them.

    I am a little curious about how they met. Did he attend one of her high school volleyball matches?

    I find absolutely nothing attractive about her. In almost every single picture I have found, she is doing the same "look at my gigantic rack" pose. Yeah, she's got the big boobs, and the tight waist...but she just looks like a complete doof...and that alone is enough for me to not find her attractive.

    My opinion: he's psyched because gets to sleep with a teenage girl less than 1/3 his age, and she and her family are psyched because there is some sort of monetary benefit.

    I don't know anything about either of these two (never heard of either of them before this), but I would bet any amount of money that this is over within a year. The novelty of banging a 16 year old will be overshadowed by the whining of a 17 year old.

    Getting married does not signify happiness, especially at age 16. She should first grow up and find out what she wants out of life before throwing it into the hands of a guy who's old enough to be her father.

    Sanctity of marriage, my ass. :rolleyes:

    Ask Hugh Hefner. He's well into his 80's and is still banging 20-year-olds.

    Our friend CaoCao, who is a staunch opponent of homosexual marriage, was trying feebly to make a point.

    And in that vein, isn't it amazing that our country allows a 16 year old to marry someone 3 times her age, but gay people still can't get married? We just want to make the same idiotic decisions that the straights do! ;)

    It says she used to do pageants. Have you ever seen pageant girls? She has probably had plastic surgery as well.

    Who are you to prevent gay people from being happy? How are they hurting you?

    It's a joke, chill

    IMO a partner should never be more than 75% older (preferably 50%)


    Everyone here who supports gay marriage, but opposes this should **** because they are being hypocrites, at least I'm consistently opposed to both

    Glad we're on the same page here...?

    There's a rule of thumb: Half your age + 7

    So, according to the acceptable western standard, the youngest his new wife "should" be is 32, that's twice her age right now. o_O

    We're not against her getting married to him but she shouldn't be doing it while underage (16).

    Just the fact that in some states and countries the age of consent is only 18 makes this sound more hypocritical than anything regarding same-sex marriage.

    I disapprove of it only because it's clear she's in it just for the money.
