  • Is it illegal?

    I am 19 year old female living in Mississippi, so I am not a legal adult in my home state; however, I want to get married and because I live so close to Arkansas, where I am considered a legal adult, I can drive 30 minutes and me and my boyfriend of 3 years can get married. But once the papers are finalized and everything, can I move in with my husband? Can I move out of my parents house without their permission if I'm not a legal adult in my home state? Can they legally make me live with them, not my husband because I'm underage?

    Hey there,

    You seem to have some legal questions about what is allowed once you and your boyfriend are married. Those are some great questions that you have! We can't say what is allowed for you to do, especially since the laws are different in each city and state. It may be helpful to ask a legal expert in your town where you live in order to be sure. They would know more about laws regarding marriage for minors and should be able to give you more information.

    Best of luck to you,
