i am 16 years old and am looking into getting emancipated. i know that colorado does not have an actual process for doing so. my mother has already given full consent for me to do so. i wanted to make sure that my father does not also have to consent. he does not live in the state and does not have custody of me. my biggest concern is with my boyfriend. my mother (and his) approve of our relationship and i was wondering... if i am emancipated, does that apply to our relationship as well or would it still be considered illegal? what i don't understand (if the answer is no) is how it is legal for parents to consent to marriage, making our relationship legal, but emancipation not making it legal... any information you can give me would be much appreciated. thanks.
