In the wide-ranging interview, Rodriguez asked, “After all this, can you see why society looks upon you and says, ‘A girl who's younger than 18 shouldn't be married and having sex?’ Has this forced you to reconsider?”
I am not even sure what she is saying. Many states allow marriages between parties younger than 18, as long as there is parental consent. Or is her point that marriage between the older men, in their 30's, for example, and the 18 year old girls is wrong? Because, frankly, up until 80 years ago or so, it was fairly normal for older men to marry young women.
