If you get married in the UK its 16 with parent consent 18 without. It depends on where you get married.
In most states, the youngest you can get married is 16, with parental consent, and 18, without parental consent.
The legal age for marriage in the United States is 18 years of age. You can get married before this but you must have your parent or guardian's permission.

There is no such thing as a dating age. There is an age of marriage and an age of consent, though.

There is no legal age limit for proposals of marriage. In some countries that have arranged marriage, those arrangements are made soon after the child is born.

If the marriage was legal in every other way then the answer is yes. However, it would help to know your wife's current age and how long you have been married. In some states the marriage may be voidable if one of the spouses challenges it. If you have questions about the validity of your marriage you should consult with an attorney who specializes in family law.

In consideration that the marriage never was actually legal, no matter how long you live apart, it is still not legal in Philippines. They won't void the marriage, but the marriage is available for annulment.
