Summary
Most people in the US likely associate the concept of the child bride with the mores and practices of the distant past. But Nicholas L. Syrett challenges this assumption in his sweeping and sometimes shocking history of youthful marriage in America. Syrett tracks the marital history of American minors from the colonial period to the present, chronicling the debates and moral panics related to these unions
