in some states No, the age of majority in most states is 18. In Alabama and Nebraska it is 19, in Mississippi and Pennsylvania it is 21. Both persons cited in the question are under the legal age of majority in any state. Some states offer the option for a person who is at least 16 years of age to apply for early emancipation status. This would not, however, indicate that an emancipation decree would be granted so the underaged couple could reside together w/o benefit of marriage.

No. The boyfriend could go to jail due to being with an underage girl.

Yes, she can move in with her boyfriend. She will have to have her father's permission.

Really so can a 16 year old girl live with her 18 year old boyfriend in the uk

Yes it is very wrong and it is also illegal for a 14 year old girl to stay with a boyfriend in another state. As the boyfriend will also be a minor , and if they have sex then it is a arrestable offence.

In most places she will be considered an adult. She can live where she wants to.

Ya but that's if you made the boyfriend then he would live with you! :/ Thanks peace! (:

Parents can give permission for a child to live with anyone they wish. However, as a parent, I wouldn't send a 16-year-old daughter to live with her boyfriend!

No she should still be living with here parents

With parental consent she can but for sex she has to be the age of consent in her state.

Go back home and live your young life with your family, then live with your boyfriend after you are married.

Do what you want to do but I think you have to be over 18 to do that

It is when they are dating and they live together.

Without parental consent? Absolutely not. With parental consent? Well, parents can give their child permission to live somewhere other than home if it

That would be the age of 18. If they have parental permission they may also mover out.

Yes, if she has the permission of her parents or a court order. Otherwise she will have to stay until she is 18.

If a child wants to live with the child's boyfriend, then the child needs to be 18.

well, where do you live
