Sadly there is no emancipation status in Texas, however I do believe that if the female is pregnant that she is then legally an adult and can do as she wishes. You may just have to tough it out and stay home until your 18, if you do need to stay there take advantage of the free rent, get a job and save every penny you make. This will make it easier for you when you do have the ability to leave home. Trust me living on your own really isn't easy. Before making such a huge step please make a list of monthly expenses, ask your boyfriend how much he pays for the rent / mortage, gas, electric, phone, cell phone, Internet access, car payement, car insurance, house insurance, food, clothes, household items, medicine, doctor bills and entertainment, and sadly emergency money - the car gets a flat tire, the dog gets sick etc... Please take all this into consideration I know sometimes you may feel that the situation your in seems hopeless however the more money you have when you do leave the better off you will be in leading the lifestyle you want! Texas does have a process called 'removal of disabilities of minority' which basically is minor emancipation. You

Yes most of them get married. But those who are extensively on chemical enhancements have trouble in getting a baby. But still everyone gets into the relationship of marriage and sex. But only getting a baby is a trouble for those on chemical enhancements.

You can have your first boyfriend whenever, just as long as your comfortable with it. And your parents should be as well, because if they're not, chances are you won't have a boyfriend without getting in trouble!

Yes. A father has no automatic right to their child (unfortunately) unless the parents are married.

Yes, marrying to get around a law and not for pure love is a mess. Officials can also investigate the legitimacy of your "marriage" and he could end up being deported anyways. Also, if your boyfriend is in jail, you should probably find a better boyfriend. And getting married when he is already in trouble legally may not prevent him from being deported. Then you would be stuck married to someone that you if you want to be with them you have to leave the country. And if you want to stay in the US, they may not want to deal with divorce and leave you stuck.

He would probably get in big trouble and never want to see you again but its a risk you will have to take

In Virginia you can get married at 16 with parental consent, 18 without parental consent. On a side note, you should be worrying about raising the baby, not getting married. If the boyfriend is going to be a genuine man and help you raise your child, then there is no need to rush a marriage.... Having a child does NOT equal having to get married.

Well if you are worried about getting in trouble, you obviously know your parent won't approve of going out with him, or don't even know about him. I think that you should just talk to your boyfriend in school and when you feel the time is right, tell you parents about him. They shouldn't overreact and ban all boyfriends when you are a teenager. It's natural and they should know that. If they do, they may have had an experience during your age that they regret and they are fearful. Either way, there really is no way to see your boyfriend outside of school without getting in trouble. Your parents were your age before, they know how you think.

What's your rush? If he's "the one", you'll be together forever, right? So why not just wait until you can legally get married. You could get yourself in a lot of trouble if your boyfriend (over 18) transports a minor (under 18) across state lines.

For most countries the legal male-female sex age is 16. Depending upon the country, check here: www.avert.org/age-of-consent.htm, there shouldn't be any chance of him getting in trouble.

If you are having trouble getting pregnant, you can visit a fertility doctor or your ob/gyn.
