There are two states that may waive the requirement of parental consent in special circumstances, however such action is at the discretion of the licensing authority. The two states are Maryland and Georgia, the circumstance that applies is best researched by the persons seeking the information.

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.

Where can minors marry without parents consent?

Pretty much nowhere in the US. Offhand I can't think of any state that allows those under the age of 18 to marry without parental consent, with two notable exceptions: In some states minors are allowed to marry despite not having parental consent if the female half of the couple is pregnant, and in some states a judge is allowed to give consent in lieu of parental consent (though in practice this tends to boil down to essentially the same thing, as a judge is unlikely to override parental authority without an extremely compelling reason, such as pregnancy).
