It looks like Phil Robertson may have controversial views on more than just homosexuality — new video footage of the Duck Dynasty star reveals that believes 15 is the perfect age for girls to get married as long as they're good in the kitchen and carry a Bible.

During a Sportsmen Ministry talk in Georgia from 2009, Robertson addresses the crowd with dating advice, and RadarOnline.com has the video clip.

"I'm going to give you some river rat counseling here," he says of a talk he had with a young man that had just began dating a young girl.

"Make sure that she can cook a meal, you need to eat some meals that she cooks, check that out. Make sure she carries her Bible. That’ll save you a lot of trouble down the road. And if she picks your ducks, now, that’s a woman."

But it's what he says about the age young men should marry women that's sure to fuel the fire already surrounding the Duck Dynasty patriarch.

“They got to where they’re getting hard to find. Mainly because these boys are waiting until they get to be about 20-years-old before they marry ‘em," he said.

"Look, you wait until they get to be 20-years-old, the only picking that’s going to take place is your pocket. You got to marry these girls when they are about 15 or 16, they’ll pick your ducks. You need to check with mom and dad about that of course."

Of course, Robertson isn't all talk — he's speaking from experience.

Robertson, 67, began dating his wife of 47 years, Miss Kay, when she was just 14-years-old and married her just two years later in 1966.

Now back on the hit A&E show, Robertson was suspended for a short time earlier this month after he stunned the world by likening homosexuality to bestiality and dismissed civil rights issues as exaggerated in an interview with GQ.
