Petition Raise the age of sexual consent and marriage to 25
I think that 16 far is too young for people to have sexual intercourse, especially if a pregnancy commences as a result. I believe that young people are too young for that sort of thing, and also too young to get married (even if parental permission). I suggest that the age of sexual consent and marriage to be raised to 25 at the youngest.
