Reaction is mixed across Pennsylvania to word that PA House members have passed a bill that would set a minimum age for getting married in the state at 18.

Currently 16- and 17-year olds can marry with parental consent.

Pennsylvania is one of 27 states that does not have a minimum age to marry. 

A companion bill has been introduced in the PA Senate where the future of the bill is less certain.
