What is the youngest you can get married?

Just wondering it doesn't matter what state or country or anything like that just what is the youngest a person can get married. I've always wondered that. Anybody know?

Legally in the US WITH parental permission i think you can marry at fifteen or sixteen. On your own you have to be at least 18. In some other countries without child protection laws a man can technically 'marry' a girl of any age. In some cases girls are 'married' to adult men as young children but may or may not engage in marital relations until ten or twelve. In some cultures two families will pledge a son and daughter to each other as early as birth and theyll be expected to marry by age twelve or so, maybe a bit later.

In India, like 8 but here in the U.S you can be 15 but your parents have to sign for you.

It depends on if your parents are willing to let you do it, and likely the state. I know in Alabama you can legally get married at 16, but I think most every other state it's 18 without parental consent.

In the US, eighteen, but everyone is moving in with their spouses before marriage.

It depends on the state.

Without parental consent, most states require a person to be 18. WITH parental consent the states vary greatly. In New Hampshire a girl can get married as young as 13 and a boy at 14 with parental consent.
