  • If you have parental consent sure its legal. why not? if she tried to do it w/out consent it would not be. my sister got married when she was 16. my mom signed consent for her.

  • Actual TX Law:



    The age is 18 without fconsent 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.



    Yes, your niece is 16yrs old and can get married with parental consent.

  • If her parents sign the consent as soon as she is 16 she can be married

  • I am not sure but I believe if the parents says it is ok I don't see why not this can not happen.
    They are blinded right now, I pray it works out for them they are still young.
    Young people are going to do what they want nothing will stop them and then they find out by themselves of the ups and downs of life.GL
