I am 17 and I am pregnant. I have lived with him for about 6 months now. My mom has never had a problem with it until now. We have been thinking about marriage very hard here lately because that is what we both want. If my doctor signs a paper stating that i am pregnant , would their be any way that we could become married without parental consent if we already have a preacher to do so.
Nope. You can't get married without parental consent until you are 18.
Getting pregnant doesn't give you any more rights. It's just more responsibility.
There is a judicial bypass procedure to get married without parental consent, but you're going to have to demonstrate maturity and financial independence to the court before it's likely to be granted. Why not just wait a few months until you turn 18?
