The minimum legal age of majority in most states is 18, in Alabama and Nebraska it is 19 and in Missississippi and Pennsylvania it is 21. Not all states have emancipation laws for minors, those that do have specific requirements that have to be met. It is highly unlikely that a court in any state would grant emancipation to an underaged person with the purpose of allowing said person to "move in" with their boyfriend who is also a minor.

NO, unless she is emancipated, her boyfriend can be charged with statutory rape or lewd acts with a minor......

At 16, you need parental permission anyways just to be emancipated. But with parental permission, I think she can live with her boyfriend. The only problem would be that she's a minor and he's not, but I think she is much less a minor when emancipated.

Legally no. Unless you have parental consent or you have been emancipated by the court system where you live

Technically, not until she is 18. Unless she has parental permission, is married to him or is emancipated.

No, because in order to be emancipated, or freed, one must first be a slave. And since Arkansas is in the USA, where slavery is illegal, a 16 year old girl cannot be emancipated in Arkansas.

When you are 18 and emancipated.

You both are minors, so only if you both are emancipated. Unlikely that that'll happen though

I would confront the girl or warn your boyfriend

any girl automatically becomes emancipated when pregnant. it is a little known law. hidden to try to stop girls getting pregnant just to become emancipated

Yes, an emancipated minor is, for all legal purposes, an adult and can thereby do whatever they want within the boundaries of the law. It would be perfectly legal for you to move in wherever you wanted.

Mostly a girl gets a boyfriend at the age 13 or 15

First of all, a 16 year old girl is never at the age of consent unless she is an emancipated minor. Second, I still believe the rape laws apply to even emancipated minors.

The laws depend on your state. In general, if you got married you could be emancipated, or if you joined the military. Getting emancipated with parental consent is easiest.

Im only 16 but i do live in Maryland and Im thinking the answer is no.This girl i know was going through all the stuff to get emancipated and she was not pregnant.

User Avatar

I'm about the same height as my boyfriend, but yes, the girl can be taller.

User Avatar

Wait until the girl and her boyfriend break up to tell her how you feel.

User Avatar

No. As long as you are a minor you are not allowed to move without their consent or being emancipated.

User Avatar

If a girl keep on talking about her ex-boyfriend to you that means she still loves him!

User Avatar

If he wants to marry another girl he's not your boyfriend.

User Avatar

That she isn't ready to have a boyfriend yet or she is to busy for a boyfriend.

18 without being emancipated. Each state has different laws for how to be emancipated and how early it can be done and under what circumstances.
