  • I think it's 16 with parents permission only, and that would be anywhere. No one can legally get married without permission until they are 18 or an emancipated minor.

  • Yup, as a matter of fact my baby sister just got married a couple of months ago. As long as the parent or legal guardian consents to it, it's perfectly legal....
