the age of consent in North Carolina is 16. you can get married

if your parents sign for it. otherwise you still have one more year

girl.

A minor under the age of 15 pregnant or not, must have

permission from the parents or legal guardian and from the superior

court.

The age of sexual consent is, as stated 16. The 19-year-old is a

legal adult and is subject to criminal prosecution if authorities

choose to pursue the action.

Authorities in all states reserve the right to prosecute any

adult involved with a minor that violates existing state laws

without the co-operation of the minor or the minor's parents or

guardian.
