Is it illegal if you are 18 and want to get married to someone who is 15 but your parents do not accept it so you do it without their permission?

The minor person must have parental permission. If you took her to another state, without the permission of her parents you could be charged with a Federal and/or state crime, even if she went willingly. There are state and federal statutes that protect minors, whether they wish to be protected or not. And whether her parents were agreeable or not. Tread carefully...very carefully. It's illegal if her parents disapprove, but not if yours do. An 18 year old does not require parental permission to get married.
