A special meeting between the Attorney General and 17 Religious Leaders yesterday yielded positive results according to those in attendance.
There was an agreement to amend the legal age of marriage to 18.
In an interview this morning, the Right Reverend Claude Berkley Bishop of the Anglican Church who attended the meeting yesterday stated that the leaders also agreed that an exceptions clause should be maintained, allowing for those under the age of 18 to be married, in special circumstances.
Bishop Berkley also gave insight into how Anglican young people regard and enter into the marriage relationship.
When asked for his thoughts on recent harsh remarks coming from the General Secretary of the Sanatan Dharma Maha Saba Sat Maharaj, he had this to say.
