    Wom

    Not exactly generalizing, well yes, maybe I am....I just think 16 is way too young in this day and age. Again, not that I am condemning them for doing wrong. Just think that life still has a lot to offer kids of that age today. And education is so much more important today than it was a century ago. But I do wish them happiness and hope it does last.

    But who's to say she can't get her education or won't? Marriage does not prevent one from travelling, experiencing life, or getting an education.

    I know plenty of married couples who decided to further their education after they were married.

    Who is to say that if she hadn't married him that she would have went to college or even finished highschool.




    R.I.P my dear Sweet Teddy. You will be missed forever. We love you.

    Its been almost 2 months since they got married.I wonder how the marriage is going.I just dont see them lasting a year cause shes still a adolesent 16 yr old girl no matter how mature she & her husband think she is.It was actually quite common in the 1800,s for young teen girls ( some as young as 13 ) to marry & have children for much older men.Especially in the wild wild west.I do hope the best for them though.

    This makes me feel sick. She is a 16 year old GIRL, and I am shocked that you would make this statement.

    Also from the article - it wasn't just the parents trying to stop this:

    Wuchae resigned from his job as teacher and coach for Brunswick County Schools on June 18, the same day he married Windy. After also dealing with its own share of negative publicity, the county school system revealed it had given Wuchae a choice to resign or be fired after he disobeyed a directive to stay away from Windy.

    What, besides the following, could the parents have done? I am interested in this because several posters have said the parents didn't do enough.

    “We have tried everything. We have contacted every agency – the Oak Island police department, the sheriff’s department, the school system. We couldn’t get a temporary restraining order against him. The school board wasn’t going to help or wasn’t going to tell us anything,” Betty said. “This man was not going to stay away from our child and she wasn’t going to stay away from him.”
