‘Green Mile’ Actor, 51, Marries 16YO

In the annals of May-December romances -- heck, early April-late December romances -- we have this: a 16-year-old beauty queen from Ocean Shores has married an actor older than her father. Internet entertainment sites are all abuzz over the nuptuals of Courtney Alexis Stodden, who is trying to put together a singing career, and Doug Hutchison, best known for playing prison guard Percy Wetmore in "The Green Mile." As an actor, Hutchison specializes in creepy, underhanded types. He's 51/Seattle PI. More here.

DFO: I had 2 aunts who were 14-15 YO when they married 30ish men in the late 1920s. And my wife has female relatives who married as young as 15 way back when.

Question: Did you or any of your relatives marry under age 18?
