How is parental consent obtained in California if a 15 year old needs to marry her 17 year old boyfriend to get away from her parents?

Hi Jonna

The other poster said it in a nutshell.

I know you aren't going to like what I am going to say next, but I do hope to take my thoughts into consideration.

Marrying your boyfriend just to get away from your parents is not the solution. It will only make matters worse. You need a good education to get on well in this world and both of you are so young.

I have no idea what your situation is at home, but if you are not abused sexually, physically or mentally, then I'd say you have it pretty good. If your parents argue and it's a high stress level then I suggest you try living with either your grandparents or another relative. Just don't race off and get married! You have a whole life ahead of you.

If you should be pregnant, then you have no alternative but to work with your parents on a solution or give the baby up for adoption. I know this sounds cruel, but a 15 year old and a 17 year old with a new babe on the way just can't make it and the stress is incredible.

Please think about what I have said very carefully.

Good luck Marcy
