In the UK, you can legally get married at the age of 16, but only with parental consent.

In the US, different states have different laws about the age one can get married legally. Most of them allow marriage with parental consent, and sometimes a court order and birth certificate. In some circumstances, there are states that allow marriage at the age of 16 without parental consent if the bride is pregnant.

To see a full list of the laws and specific requirements for marriage in each state, see the "Marriage Laws by State" in the related links.
