"In 2016, Germany eased the prosecution of rape by changing the definition of rape. Since then, verbal or nonverbal resistance is enough. Before, victims had to proof that they physically resisted (verbally was not enough) or that they were unable to do so (because some gave you drugs for example – being in a state of shock was not enough). In this new law, threatening people to have sex is now also a criminal offense as well as sexual harassment that takes the form of physical contact. Both could not be prosecuted before" (Para 3-4).

"'Religious or cultural justifications obscure the simple fact that older, perverse men are abusing young girls,' said Rainer Wendt, head of the German police union. Monika Michell of Terre des Femmes, a women's rights group that campaigns against child marriage, said: 'A husband cannot be the legal guardian of a child bride because he is involved in a sexual relationship with her — a very obvious conflict of interest.' The Justice Minister of Hesse, Eva Kühne-Hörmann, asked: 'If underage persons — quite rightly — are not allowed to buy a beer, why should the lawmakers allow children to make such profound decisions related to marriage?'

Germany does not recognize marriages contracted abroad if a partner is under 14, but German family courts have discretion to determine the validity of marriages concluded abroad by minors who are 14 or older" (para 5). "In May, an appeals court in Bamberg recognized the marriage of a 15-year-old Syrian girl to her 21-year-old cousin.
