    Default Can a 17 Year Old Get Married to a 19 Year Old Without Parental Consent

    My question involves marriage law for the State of: West Virginia
    My girlfriend and I are wishing to get married but her parents aren't likely to give consent and she wants to move out and for us to get married with a place of our own. She is graduated and has a job same as I do. Is this possible?

    Default Re: Can a 17 Year Old Get Married to a 19 Year Old Without Parental Consent

    Pursuant to West Virginia Code, Sec. 48-2-301, she will either need parental consent or she will have to wait until she's a legal adult (age 18) to marry ("The clerk of the county commission may issue a marriage license to an applicant who is under the age of eighteen but sixteen years of age or older if the clerk obtains a valid written consent from the applicant's parents or legal guardian.").
