Age-Based Legal Rights


Getting Married

People 19 years old or older can get married without permission. Young people between 16 and 19 can marry if their parents agree. Young people under 16 usually can’t get married unless they go to court and get permission to marry from a judge. The judge will only agree if he or she thinks this is good for them.
