The town in which you live is irrelevant, as age requirements for such issues as marriage are established by the state. In Missouri the age of majority is 18, as is the age in which a person(s) may marry without parental permisson. In this state there is some confusion concerning the age of majority, as some believe it to be 17 rather than the actual legal age of 18. The statute that refers to someone being an "adult" at the age of 17, pertains to juvenile court procedures only, it stipulates when someone who is at least 17 can be adjudciated under the adult court process.

No, if you are emancipated, you do not need parental permission to marry. But it might be easier just to get their permission, in that marriage emancipates a minor.
