Georgia is one of three states that allow a pregnant minor who is at least 16 to marry w/o parental permission. Minor's under that age can usually receive a waiver from the court granting permission to marry. The minor must present the licensing official with a notarized statement from a licensed physician validating the pregnancy. If the other person is also a minor he must receive permission to marry and the parent(s) or legal guardian must be present at the time of the license application. Other documentation will be required from all parties, contacting the clerk of vital records in the county of residency will help obtain the needed information. (06/13/09) Your child deserves an intact family, but how long will it remain intact? Do you want to gamble with the chances you will end alone with the child, or that you give the child to the father and leave? The chances of this are substantial. Over 85% of all divorces involve people who married or lived together prior to age 24.

Biologically, this is when females reach full mature on the physical, emotional, and hormonal levels. At this point, a woman is fully prepared to have and handle children, as well as a male that is still not fully mature.

Males don't reach full physical and hormonal maturity until age 30. This is also when they reach their peak emotional maturity, but not to the point of being fully independent. Half of the male emotional health comes from a woman. The biochemical frequency range of the male brain adjusts itself to match that of the female, developing an emotional symbiotic relationship.

Couples who begin cohabiting and/or get married prior to age 24 can find themselves drawing away from each other as each reaches full maturity. Their whole view of the world, and each other, changes. This doesn't happen to all couples, but clearly it is a factor in most relationship breakdowns. Cohabiting couples breakup three times more than married couples. Cohabiting couples that later marry have a 46% higher rate of divorce than those who did not cohabit prior to marriage. See Link Below

Not without a court order. And she will require parental permission to get married.

You must be 18 in order to leave home without parental consent unless you have been emancipated in some manner. Being pregnant/giving birth does *not* emancipate a minor. If you go to the doctor, get a note saying you are pregnant with the doc's signature you can get married, and that will emancipate you. ***NOTE*** You can no longer move out, and/or get married just because you are pregnant. The was a case of a 40-something year old women and a 15 year old male getting pregnant and getting married, after that Georgia revoked this law.

Of course not! You must be 18 to get married without parental consent or a court order.

Georgia: If you are 16 or 17 years old, you may apply if accompanied by both parents who have given written consent. If the bride is pregnant, no parental consent is required if you submit a statement from a licensed physician certifying that the bride is pregnant.

No. At 17 you are a minor, pregnant or not, and if you leave the state without your parents permission that makes you a run away.

User Avatar

after you have your period, you are able to have a kid. but under country law, if you are under 15 besides in the state of Georgia, you can't get married without parental consent. (in Georgia, if you are pregnant at 15, you are allowed to).

User Avatar

No. There are plenty of other places you could be a resident and still get married at 16.

Yes, you have parental consent to get married.AnswerNo, Georgia is one of three states that allow a pregnant minor who is at least 16-years old to be married without the consent of the parent(s) or legal guardian. At the time the application for the marriage license is made the minor must present a notarized document from a physician licensed in the state of Georgia attesting to the validity of the pregnancy.
