Statement from Governor Andrew M. Cuomo on Passage of Legislation to End Child Marriage in New York

TOP Statement from Governor Andrew M. Cuomo on...

"It’s shocking current law allows for children as young as 14 to be married off. This administration championed ending this intolerable practice and I commend the Assembly and the Senate for passing legislation that puts an end to child marriage in New York once and for all. This is a major step forward that will protect children, prevent forced marriages, and create a safer, more just, New York for all."
