All states require parental or guardian consent of anyone under the age of majority. The age of majority in all but four states is 18, in Alabama and Nebraska it is 19, in Mississippi and Pennsylvania it is 21. Georgia, Maryland and Florida have exceptions under special circumstances concerning the neccessity of parental or guardian consent.

Well that's true, but you can also pleed your case to a judge and get married with out parental consent. Google it.

In Nebraska you must be 19 to get married without permission. With parental permission you can get married at 17, but it requires parental consent. Under 17 is not allowed.

nope sorry dear, the legal age of marriage is 18 but still with parents consent. the age wherein you can get married without parents consent is above 21 years old.Well... the answer to your question depends on whether you have parental consent and your location so the above answer could be correct, you just need to refer to your local laws.If you are in the United States, go toand you can look up your state, see if it's legal for you to get married at 17 with parental consent in your state.

If you live in a place where same-sex marriage is legal you will be able to marry at the age of 18. To marry at a younger age requires parental consent and possibly judicial consent. If same-sex marriage is not legal where you live, you can travel to someplace where it is and marry there.

No. The minimum age requirement to become a Marine is 17 years of age, with a parent's or legal guardian's written conscent. Once an individual becomes 18, a parent's or legal guardian's permission is not required. There are other requirements, but this should answer your particular question.

Legal age for marriage is 18 but 16 and 17 year old can get married with written permission from both parents. If the 16-17 year old is pregnant a judge may grant permission without the consent of her parents with proof from a Dr.

Marriage laws in the United States vary by state, but in most states you must be at least 18 to marry. Some states allow marriage at the age of 16 or 17 if a parent is present and consents to the marriage. There is no limit to how old you can be - people of any age over 18 are free to marry.
