A 23 year old man in my story gets into a relationship with a 17 year old. (17 is illegal in the country. He marries him at 19.
In my novelette, a 19 year old man marries a 29 year old man. Do you think a man marrying at 19 is too young?

Pseudomarital abomination unions are not marriage. So it's a trick question. That being said... you've already established that the older one is an impulsive predator. A sicko. And that the younger one is vulnerable, impressionable prey. No actual love there, just a power dynamic of a demented variety.
So why should the younger man's age make any difference? The older one is a proven menace to society. He goes to jail, period. The younger one gains his self-confidence back, rises from the older one's shadow, and finds a wife. One who won't hold his crooked past against him. The older one breaks out, and bangs the first five year-old boy he sees. And gets run over with a tank. Justice served. The end.0
