She want to marry her boyfriend but she is wondering is she can because she is 16 and her boyfriend 21. She know that she need parent approval and she has it but would there be any problems or anything like that ?
A person must be 18 in Texas to marry or obtain a court order to marry under the age of 18. Texas Family Code has been amended to do away with parental consent without a court order to obtain a marriage license.
