Supreme Court overturns non-EU young spouses ban

The UK Supreme Court has ruled that it is unlawful for the government to ban non-EU foreign spouses under the age of 21 from coming to the UK.

I’ve not yet read the decision, and while this seems like a no brainer, presumably, this means that if it’s legal to marry at aged 14 in your home jurisdiction, then you can come and join your spouse here? I’m not sure that would go over too well.
