Governing Laws Narital Emancipation

To allow a minor to marry, the judge will determine whether the union is in the best interest of both parties. In some states, child laws regarding marriage are even stricter. For example, in the State of Nebraska, notarized parental consent is required for any individual under the age of nineteen who is applying for marriage. In Mississippi, child law sets the minimum age for marriage without parental consent at 21.

Though it was once a common practice, many people now believe that it is not a good idea for a child to be married. Many children under the age of majority are not ready to handle the responsibilities and the financial burden that comes with being emancipated.
