In what states can a 16-year-old mother get married to the 18-year-old father of her baby?
A minor must have consent of the sole custodial parent or both
parents if they share joint custody in order to marry. Some states
allow pregnant minors to be married without parental consent but
with the permission of the court. A minor pregnant or already
having had a child may not leave the resident state in order to
marry in a state that has such laws, the marriage would not be
allowed. Marriages that are obtained by the use of fraudlent
documents are not legal. The one exception to the above are minors
who are residents of the State of Wisconsin.
