Would marriage between a 16 year old and 19 year old be the only for them to have a Sexually and Happily relationship if the parents don't agree with the relationship , and could the parents stop the wedding ?
In Florida, the law contains provisions that allow a 16 or 17 year old to consent to sex with someone 18 to 23. To get married the couple would have to have the minor's parents consent. I don't know what Ohio law says on the subject, but whether the law allows it or not, you should proceed cautiously. Introducing sex into a relationship changes things. A lot. You should give yourself time to be certain that you are emotionally ready to do that, and when and if you do make that choice, be absolutely certain that the one you intend to have sex with cares about you as a person and not just as someone they get to have sex with. The last part of my answer is my free advice on life. It has nothing to do with the law and you can consider it or ignore it at your pleasure. Hopefully an Ohio attorney will clarify what the law is in your state.
Yes, but only with parental consent from the parents of the minor girl.

Yes, but only with the parents consent. The 19 year old could face criminal charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor if the parents do not want him around the 16 year old. This is a non-expungeable charge and can be very bad for the 19 year old. I would recommend the 19 year old stay away.
