I'm 15 i have been sleeping with a 25 year old who thinks I'm 17, now I'm pregnant. Can we go to another state to get married? We may possibly have parental consent also... Not sure. Please no negativity!
No. Also, parental consent won't matter. Also, GA no longer has the "pregnancy exemption" which, years ago, would have allowed the marriage.
You need to understand that the law and the lawyers here and society look upon this man as a pedophile. A person who gets sexual pleasure by touching, etc children. He is not normal in our society. Marrying this person will not be successful for you. Please speak with a school counselor or church friend. Finally, understand that if your parents allow this relationship to continue, they run the risk of being arrested too. Please speak with an adult that you can trust to protect you.

By "no negativity" do you mean no reality? The reality is that he is a felony criminal. Having sex with someone under age 16 is a crime, and it does not matter that you lied to him about your age or just let him believe you were older. You cannot get married in GA without parental consent. As to other states, you may have to ask lawyers there. You really need to slow down with this idea of marriage. You have already changed your life dramatically by getting pregnant at such a young age. I suppose if you were 25 and he was 35, the age difference might not be such a dramatic thing, but one should wonder, you should wonder, why is the 25 year old man interested in a relationship with a 15 year old child?
