No. The AOC for the state is 17. Therefore the adult male can be charged with numerous criminal offenses if authorities choose to do so. The pregnancy issue is irrelevant other than evidence that the relationship was sexual. The minor would need parental consent and also approval from the court before she would be allowed to marry. Authorities reserve the right to arrest, charge and prosecute any adult who violates existing laws pertaining to adult and minor relationships, without the co-operation of the minor or the minor's parents or legal guardian.

No. Pregnant or not, you have to have parental consent if you are under the age of 18.
