How do you get marryied?
Asked in Relationships, Dating, Preteen Relationships
Is 9 to young to have a boyfriend?
Is it legal in Maryland for a 17-year-old and a 23-year-old to live together if they have a child together?
The state's legal age is 18, a pregnant minor or minor who already has a child is not considered emancipated. If the parents of the minor do not object to her moving in with the father of her child it is not likely that authorities would take any action against the adult male unless unusual circumstances applied. Although the state does not recognize common law marriage, it does recognize the intent of a couple living together to become marryied. Because the state allows minors who are pregnant or have a child to marry without parental consent, cohabitation of a minor female older than 16 with an adult is rarely challenged as long as the couple are self-supporting, and there are no mitigating circumstances.
