South Dakota County becoming "Las Vegas" for underage marriages

Yikes! We're still the frontier in many ways.

Sioux Falls was once a quicky divorce mill for rich Easterners, until the first Episcopal Bishop, William Hobart Hare, led a movement to stop the practice.

Now, Union County is attracting minors who want quick access to legal marriage - and adults who want to marry minors.

Union sits in the SE corner of SD, affording quick access to couples from Nebraska and Iowa.
