Default Can a 14 year old get married?

My 14 year old daughter wants to marry her 21 year old boyfriend. I know she is young but she is very mature for her age and they are a real couple. They live together with me and sleep in the same bed. Her boyfriend has a job and buys things for her. Me and my daughter have a good relationship and I am involved in her life. My daughter is responsible and has been sexually active for nearly two years, she don't get pregnant. Will they make an exception for my daughter to get married if I provide parental consent and tell them how mature she is?

Thank you for your advice.

you do realize that you are a party to something that is considered rape by the majority of states and countries of the world?

AGE OF CONSENT CHART FOR THE U.S.


her boyfriend was 19 when she was 12 and having sex- that's flat out illegal in every state and considered statutory rape

even now it's illegal at age 14

bottom line is that a 12 or 14 year old girl cannot legally consent to sex, she isn't physically or mentally capable of making such decisions

and I truly hope and pray that you are a troll and making this all up because you are allowing your daughter to be abused otherwise

My oldest daughter is 17 and I still do not encourage dating. Right now education is most important in her life. Socializing comes second.

We did not allow any sort of dating until this year. My daughter has been on one date. We met the guy and his parents before she went out. I do realize my hubby and I are on the stricter side, but letting a 14 year old date and allowing sexual relations is a bit much.

wow... Your daughter isn't your best friend, she is your child.

ok, why can't she wait to get married till she is of legal age then? Make her wait, if she is "mature" she will understand.

You are aiding and abetting a SERIOUS felony!

wow. just frikkin WOW. what kind of mother ARE YOU??

Someone seriously needs to report you and the goings on in your home.

I hope to god you are a troll and this is a false post. No mother worth the title "mother" would ever allow this abuse under her own roof..and would move heaven and earth to stop a man this age abusing her child. He is a PEDOPHILE..you are an accomplice.

you deserve to be in jail.

I also hope this is a troll because if it isn't there is a seriously ****ed up mother somewhere out there. Holy freaking crap.

Recently found out that my daughter was friends with a guy who was once in this situation. She ended the friendship. He has a felony record that will prevent him from having a real life. Depending on who looks at this, a sexual relationship can be viewed as aggravated assault of a minor.

Thank you for your advice.
Are you serious?

Statutory rape. You made yourself part of this.


Let's hope when daughter gets older, and hopefully wiser, she does not curse and report you for letting her get abused.

I was not allowed to date until the day I turned 18. My parents knew I met a sweet young man when I was 17, but they forbade me to see him. Even though I still saw him on the sly, I never lost my virginity to him until I was 18.

Education is extremely important. Being too strict and hovering may cause other problems, but it sounds like you are not too harsh. I was much too naive for my age until I was 21.

I don't think people should date until they are at least 16. That young man proposed to me that sultry summer and I would have married him at 18, like a ninny. Thank God I listened to my mother, when she told me I was waaay too young to be a wife.

As for the OP, her story is hopefully a disgusting lie.
