    Well that's not really for me to decide, but I was getting at the fact that if two people apply for asylum (with that age gap) in Denmark who are married, then the chances are it's a sham.
    It may be a sham. It may be non-consensual. It may be a cultural expectation.

    But those are different issues from whether the age of the parties renders the marriage void.

    Too imprecise and doesnt make sense if in Denmark a similar marriage would be legal. They will need to prove its a sham in a different way.

    That's just ****ed up, and you know it.
    And makes no logical sense, I understand you 'feel' a certain way about it but that doesn't justify not allowing it mate.
