No. If the marriage was legally conducted and the license legally obtained, the other parent can't change it. The key word being "if" a legal marriage occurred. When parents share joint legal custody it means that both parents have the right to make or contest decisions concerning the minor child's welfare. Under such circumstances, a minor child could not be legally married without both parents giving consent to the marriage. If a marriage did occur under such circumstances the non consenting parent would have grounds to contest the act.
