In NC a pregnant 15-year-old can ask for court approval to marry. A judge may approve the marriage if they find that 'the underage party is capable of assuming the responsibilities of marriage and the marriage will serve the best interest of the underage party'. However, be aware that there is a presumption that 'the marriage will not serve the best interest of the underage party when all living parents of the underage party oppose the marriage. The fact that the female is pregnant, or has given birth to a child, alone does not establish that the best interest of the underage party will be served by the marriage'. So if Mom and Dad oppose the marriage...

Does underage marriage happen in Islam?

Yes. Underage marriage usually comes out of local cultural traditions that predominate in Africa and the Indian Subcontinent. Hindus also engage in underage marriage and Jews and Christians in the Islamic World used to do this as well. Unfortunately, since Muhammad married Aïsha at such a young age, this has precedential value to more traditional leaders who wish to continue the practice of child brides. Muslims who are appalled by the idea of child brides try to "re-age" Aïsha in order to invalidate this precedent and push for minimum marriage ages above 14 or 16.
