  • if it is parental consent and there is a baby then you have legally binding marriage and no one goes to jail for being married.

  • I think consenting age in most states is 16, some are even 14 as long as the father isn't over like 20. Laws in each state vary, but I don't see a big difference in this situation.

  • Yes, in most states, 17 is considered legal age now. Which is kind of weird to me.

  • the "boy" is a man and was a man when get got a girl pregnant at 16 (if the child is one)
    so, no one made a stink when girl got pregnant, so not in jail
    but he could be if the parents of girl had an issue
    IMO
    better married than the MAN in jail- if he is a descent man and father to child

  • I think 17yrs is the legal age to get married without parental consent in most states....... Just a thought. With or Without a baby, 17yrs is way too young to get married. He has had more time to enjoy his youth. And he can legally go places she can not. Proceed with caution!!
