In jurisprudence, normally the federals set the minimum standards to protect the rights of citizens and the state may exceed them. The feds telling state's to restrict rights? Well, several states are calling bullshit on it legally.

Really, for a moment I thought when passing DOMA would rescind any laws imposing minimum age of marriage. Apparently it is just another useless law thay forcibly enforces male-female marriage only.

Same-sex marriage is not widespread enough to cause some major damage to the morality of society or survival of human species, why the need for such laws anyway?

Since the Big Religion that was fostering and pushing this through the legal system, shouldn't they, with their business acumen shown being able to milk millions from thier followers, sweeten the deal and make marriage as tradtional as possible, complete with marriage sacks, bethrohals and bride buying regardless of age?

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.
