US Marriage Authorisation #usa


Herbert Lazerow
 

   In the U.S., each state regulates its marriages and the forms required. I only know of one situation where authorisation would be required. Where a party to a marriage is younger than the age required to consent to it (these are contracts after all), a parent or guardian must consent. The age of consent has varied from state to state and, within each state, from time to time. Around 1900 in Pennsylvania, the age of consent seems to have been 21.
