Can a 16-year-old girl get married to a 17-year-old boy in Mississippi without parental consent?

The legal ages of consent for marriage (without parental consent) in Mississippi are 15 for females and 17 for males.

Mississippi requires a person to be *21* in order to get married without parental consent. The age to get married *with* parental consent is: girls 15, boys 17.

Now, I don't know how long that has been the law in Mississippi so maybe it was recently changed?? But I do know that it is the law as of today's date (02/11/05), because I called the county clerk's office and asked them :)
