Judy Biggert Quote
No Congress ever has seen fit to amend the Constitution to address any issue related to marriage. No Constitutional Amendment was needed to ban polygamy or bigamy, nor was a Constitutional Amendment needed to set a uniform age of majority to ban child marriages.
If we had to earn our age by thinking for ourselves at least once a year, only a handful of people would reach adulthood.
