No. I was in the same situation, and I live in Florida. You either have to be 18 years old, or you need to be "legally emancipated". To be legally emancipated, you need to be at least 16, and you have to fight your parents in court, which will be very costly, and time consuming. Maybe if you have a talk with your parents, and let them know that if they won't consent to you getting married, then THEY are going to have to be the ones responsible for supporting you and your newborn child until you turn 18.

Actually, Florida's laws state that you CAN get a marriage license from a county court judge if you are pregnant without parental consent. "If a person is under the age of 16, the marriage license has to be issued by a county judge, with or without parental permission. A minor who swears that they have a child or are expecting a baby, can apply for a license if the pregnancy has been verified by a written statement from a licensed physician" please note that the County court judge can decide to deny the marriage license.

So you have to take it to your county court, bring in all your documents (Birth certificate, social security card, ect), swear that you are pregnant, bring in proof from a physician, and it would probably help if you have some way of supporting yourself and the child financially. The judge will review your case and either decide to grant or deny you a marriage license. (Also please note this will cost money, like previous answer said. )

Also as the previous answer stated, it might be easier if you talk to your parents about it.
