    Default Can an Adult Under Guardianship Get Married

    My mother is the ward and I don't necessarily mind her dating, but I feel like a marriage could complicate the guardianship. I live in Ohio, is it against the law for her to marry? What would happen if she did? Related question, should I let her date? I'm all about free will and doing what makes you happy so I don't mind she does, but my siblings feel opposite. They feel if she is capable of dating, she does not need a guardian and that a mentally disabled person basically just shouldn't date. In experience, what works best?

    What is her disability? Depending on what it is it may not be safe for her to date.
