Hey all....now plz, just don't ask why, it is a complicated situation, and trust me, I really hope it wont come to this. Not cause we don't love eachother, and not that we don't plan on getting married when we are older, it is just that we are young. The only reason for marraige would be for emancipation in minnesota, which can happen two ways, parental consent, or a legal marraige. I have been looking into this heavily, on ways to get "her" out of her house, and emancipation through marraige would be the absolute last resort. Now, researching, I have found that Minor marraige is legal without parental consent in Massechuesets. Only problem is.....

Under 18: If you are under 18 years old, you will need a court order from either a probate court or district court in the locale where you live in order to apply for a marriage license.

How would I do this then? if I would need a court order, how would I get this? what would I need? and keep in mind, my "Locale" is Pine City (Pine County) Minnesota. Got it? Plz do help me out here, and plz, PLZ! Do not question the morality of what I may have to do, seriously, it will most likely not come to this, it would be a last resort.

Btw, I know this is a gamer forum, but ya, some of you may know a thing or two about law, and I need help, so I turn to my people, haha.

If you're being serious about this, search the Internet for laws where you live, and what you would need to do for a court order, etc.

Please give this alotta thought about what the long tems consequense could be. I'll give you an example with one of my own mistakes in a similar situation..only I was 21 and didn't need permission. I marries a 15 yr. old who lived in HELL! I thought by getting her mom's permission and marrying her, I could at least give her a decent chance at a normal life. That marriage lasted 3 years. The reasons for the the divorce are not relavent to this, so I won't go into them. Point is I wanted to help her, and would up screwing thing up for BOTH of us. I know how much you want to help someone you care about...but this early in your life, you could unknowingly be making things worse down the road. The final decision will have to be your's though. EDIT: sorry bout spelling error, meant to say wound up screwing things up.

His intentions were good though. I see no problem with that as long as you treat her well and not use her as an in-house slave.

Eh, they marry 2 year olds aganist their will in some countires.

Why is it more and more I'm growing to come to agree with you outright...anyhow. I agree with Beef. What the hell are you thinking of? I think we should have to actually ask the morality of this. And remember all, look what happened to Romeo and Juliet when they tried to marry...tut tut.
