Yes, Texas and many, many other states and countries allow a 17 year-old to consent to sex regardless of their partners age ( so I'm sure that marriage (a sacred and honorable union before God) is allowable. This is something you would really want to sit down and discuss with both sets of parents. I'm sure that if everyone is for the marriage then age would not be an obstacle. My advice, wait! Everyone thinks they're in love when they're young, it hardly ever lasts. Look at the divorce statistics. And considering that you want to marry young, you are pretty much guaranteed to end in divorce and financial and spiritual ruin. You have one chance to make the right choice. The male brain isn't fully formed and primed for best judgment until age 30 (human development). Wait until you know yourself better and what you need to be happy in a long-term relationship, then marry a young filipina, their culture makes them wonderful wives and mothers from what I hear and read. Good luck!
