Is there any state or any country where you can get married at age 16 to a 19-year-old without parental consent?

There are no states that would allow such a union w/o the consent of the parents or legal guardian. The reference to another country is irrelevant for the most part. For instance if the couple believed they could go to Canada or Mexico get married and return, they would not need documentation to enter but they need a passport to return to the U.S. In regards to a minor they would not only need a passport but other documentation. For example when traveling with only one parent, that parent would have to show proof of custody or a notarized statement of permission from the absent parent. In other words, it can't be done. If somehow the couple managed to negotiate governmental regulation, the marriage would not be recognized as valid in the U.S., because it was obtained using fraudulent means. In case you are considering obtaining a passport, a minor needs their parent(s) or legal guardian accompanying them when applying.
