  • if the parents agree it is. but if even one parent listed on the girls birth certificate objects then she will have to wait.

  • According to this site, all she'd need would be her parents' consent.  If she was under 16, she'd need her parents' and a judge's consent.

  • Texas is no more hick country than any other state in the south. LOL! I love how people think Texas is so "hick".

  • http://www.coolnurse.com/marriage_laws.htm
    Texas: The age is 18 without from a parent or your legal guardian. If under the age of 16, the law requires that the couple receives a court order before being allowed to marry.

    most of them are similar. even NY and CA - so much for the hick theory @@
    btw better a hick than a dumbass

  • I find it funny when most people think of NY and it being all city like... we have FAR more country than we do cities... although our taxes suck. I would no more say Texas was hick than I would call all of NY state a city..
