It's legal since there are no laws for dating, just for sex. For sex the minor must have reached the age of consent in the state.

Okay so im 14 and my boyfriend is 17 6months to 18 we are being married in 1 month can i move in with him right after our wedding without parental consent or what has to be done?

I don't know what state you live in and so far I have not seen one state where you are allowed to marry with parental consent if you are not 15 but you maybe are in 1 month. Without parental consent you can not marry as a minor. If you are married as a minor you will be emancipated so you can live where ever you want.
