In the majority of states, no. In three states it is possible for a pregnant minor who is at least sixteen years of age to marry w/o parental consent. Those states are Florida, Maryland and Georgia. The minor must present a notarized document from a licensed physician confirming the pregnancy. In Maryland the minor's parent's will receive notification of the application for a marriage license. (06/13/09) Your child deserves an intact family, but how long will it remain intact? Do you want to gamble with the chances you will end alone with the child, or that you give the child to the father and leave? The chances of this are substantial. Over 85% of all divorces involve people who married or lived together prior to age 24.

Biologically, this is when females reach full mature on the physical, emotional, and hormonal levels. At this point, a woman is fully prepared to have and handle children, as well as a male that is still not fully mature.

Males don't reach full physical and hormonal maturity until age 30. This is also when they reach their peak emotional maturity, but not to the point of being fully independent. Half of the male emotional health comes from a woman. The biochemical frequency range of the male brain adjusts itself to match that of the female, developing an emotional symbiotic relationship.

Couples who begin cohabiting and/or get married prior to age 24 can find themselves drawing away from each other as each reaches full maturity. Their whole view of the world, and each other, changes. This doesn't happen to all couples, but clearly it is a factor in most relationship breakdowns. Cohabiting couples breakup three times more than married couples. Cohabiting couples that later marry have a 46% higher rate of divorce than those who did not cohabit prior to marriage. See Link Below

If you are under the age of 18, parental consent is necessary. You can get married at 16 with consent. You may be able to get a court order if the parents are not available.

I don't think that it matters whether you are pregnant or not. I think that you need parental consent or be age 18 or older.

No, she must be 18 to get married without parental consent. In some states, a court order can be obtained if the judge can be convinced it is the right thing to do.

Of course not! You must be 18 to get married without parental consent or a court order.

No. But you can get married at 18 without needing parental consent.
