HARRISBURG, Pa. (KDKA) — Governor Tom Wolf signed House Bill 360 into law, setting the minimum age for obtaining a marriage license to 18 years old.

“Setting the minimum age to obtain a marriage license will help prevent child exploitation,” said Governor Wolf in a press release.

“Marriage is a sacred and serious commitment that should be undertaken with love by two adults, not by children being exploited by unscrupulous adults,” said Wolf.

The bill was signed on Friday.
