If I have gay marriage with a minor with parental consent in Maryland, will she still be emancipated when we go back to Ohio?

Asked about 1 year ago - Ashtabula, OH

Getting married will automatically make the minor emancipated. I want to know if she will still be considered emancipated when we go back to Ohio because we would only travel to Maryland to get married. A right of emancipated minors is choosing where to live. But Ohio does not recognize same sex marriage. Will she still be emancipated?

    Answered . Since Ohio doesn't recognize same sex marriage or provide any of the benefits by law of marriage, I would say no. My recommendation would be that you go through the process of formally emancipating the minor here before you go to Maryland to get married. Or wait until the inevitable happens when Ohio finally begins to recognize / allow same sex marriages. Good luck to you.
