Wife in boy rape case.
Summer Strickland, 21, was arrested in Atlanta, Georgia, and charged with rape after the birth of the child last month.
Strickland married the now 14-year-old father of the baby three weeks ago.
Although the couple was allowed under Georgia law to marry because they are parents, it was illegal for them to have sex in the first place.
Strickland, who was released on bail, said the arrest shocked her family.
She said: "He's my husband, I just don't understand."
