The state has no laws nor process available for early emancipation, with the exception of judicial procedure pertaining to guardianship responsibilities. The age of majority is 18, but it is not "automatic" it can be subject to approval of the court depending upon specified circumstances.

Here's a link that provide some emancipation info for Massachusetts. http://www.clcm.org/minors_rights.htm It states (among many other things): "There is no formal procedure in Massachusetts for a child to become emancipated from his/her parents. Most judges will not grant a child emancipated status. However, a child may still file for emancipation in the Probate and Family Court of his or her county despite the lack of a formal procedure."

Yes, if the 17 year old is emancipated then they are considered an adult. They can make their own decisions and get married if they want. Parents can not stop an emancipated child from doing anything, the court considered an emancipated child to be 18 years old.
