A new law raising the marriage age in New Hampshire was a victory for one incoming state representative before she even considered running for office.

Starting Tuesday, the state’s minimum marriage age will be 16, up from 13 for girls and 14 for boys. The bill was championed by Cassie Levesque, who was a senior in high school in 2017 when she began her push to raise the marriage age as part of a Girl Scouts project.
