Quick Overview of Governing Laws Marital Emancipation

To allow a
minor to marry, the judge will determine whether the union is in the best
interest of both parties. In some states, child laws regarding marriage are
even stricter. For example, in the State of Nebraska, notarized parental
consent is required for any individual under the age of nineteen who is
applying for marriage. In Mississippi, child law sets the minimum age for
marriage without parental consent at 21.

Though it
was once a common practice, many people now believe that it is not a good idea
for a child to be married. Many children under the age of majority are not
ready to handle the responsibilities and the financial burden that comes with
being emancipated.
