Marry Our Daughter is an introduction service assisting families to arrange marriages for their daughters. Kyra A, a 14 year-old who hails from the southeast and loves the outdoors, comes with a bride price of USD 27, 995.
The site has gotten 20 million page views in the last two weeks and gets around a thousand (mostly angry) emails a day. The site's creator (and active nudist), John Ordover, has revealed that the site is indeed a prank.
Mr. Ordover quickly conceded the page was a parody aimed at drawing attention to inconsistencies in state marriage laws. States consider it a crime for adults to have sex with minors, but they allow kids as young as 12 to get married with parental and sometime judicial permission.
