What age can I get married?

I know some people who are very young, but they are married. Is there any limit to what age you have to be to get married?


The marriageable age, as it’s called, is eighteen in many countries, however it does vary from country to country. You can check the internet for your specific country. It often also depends on whether the parents agree to the marriage or not, this is called ‘parental consent’.

In Norway, for example, people can get married at eighteen, but if their parents and a district official allow them, they can marry at sixteen.
