The consent of at least one parent or guardian isrequired for a person aged 16 or 17 to get married.Males at the time of marriage must be at least 18 years ofage, while females aged 16–17 can marry withthe consent of at least one parent or guardian.
Similarly, can you be engaged at 16? There is no minimum age to get engaged, so thisis legal. I'm wondering if anyone else, like your family andfriends know about your engagement. It's important to have supportaround you. You said that your boyfriend has saidthat once you turn 16 you're going to getmarried and start your own family.
