FL Passes Bill To End Most Child Marraiges

Florida lawmakers have approved a bill that would end most child marriages. 

In an overwhelming vote on Friday, the House voted 109-1 for the bill, which would prohibit anyone under the age of 17 from getting married. 

The measure emerged after a compromise with the Senate, which originally voted to ban marriages of anyone under 18. 

The final bill states that anyone marrying a 17-year-old can't be more than two years older, and minors need parental consent.
