Maybe 50 years later we'll be legalizing underage marriages then? A 40-year old will have a right to marry a 12-year old girl because come on "They love each other, so that's ok.". Everyone is becoming such a pussy in this society that it's not even funny. And don't say that BS like underage marriage isn't gonna happen because the same thing was said about same sex marriage decades ago... and look where we are now.
The line is CONSENTING ADULTS.
Gay people, trans people deserve equal rights, because they're both adults who are mentally capable of giving consent.
Underage marriage is not an equivalent situation - which is why, even though it was common in our barbaric past, it is largely frowned upon.
