A minor in the US needs parental permission to marry. Even if the parents of the minor allowed her to marry and she would then be considered emancipated it is unlikely she would be able to apply for a spousal visa for her husband until she is of legal age. If the minor marries outside the US the marriage would be legal. A minor cannot legally leave the US without parental permission and in most cases being accompanied by an adult. A minor who left the US by illegal means and married in a foreign country would not be considered legally married in the US.
