You suck as a parent if you sign parental consent for a minor to marry.

As a person who married for the first time when I was 10 days past my 17th birthday (and not pregnant); I agree with you.

I have no idea what the hell my mother was thinking....I wanted to get out of the house and be on my own. 

After my mom passed away, I foudn a letter she had wrote to my dad saying she was going to let me get married so they could have some time to themselves and she was tired of raising kids...

That marriage lasted a whole 9 months (no kids thankfully).

I think signing for that marriage was my mother's biggest parenting fail

I will be sure to tell my mom that then. Since it was wither that or let me have a baby our of wedlock. And NO it was NOT her fault I got pregnant. I ran away at 16 TO get pregnant because I thought my life was sooooooooo horrible at home. You know since I had rules, and chores, and a cerfew. Yea I was just a bad kid.

I really don't think anyone should be getting married before they are 22, honestly..

Well, in Mississippi my parents had to sign for me and I was 20. We've been married 17 years, so I don't think they suck.

Yes please do tell your mother that.

I'm also sick of parents obligating marriage because of a pregnancy.
Marriage doesn't make teen pregnancy okay. You do not have to marry someone because they get you pregnant. That is such a ridiculous concept.

 Well if a minor is pregnant many parents feel it is best and actually force the marriage...

I wouldn't.

This, but I was 17. (We've been married 14 years, and together for 18.)

Lol. My parents signed for me to get married at 16 and they don't suck as parents.

P.s. I'm still married to the same man 17 years later.
