Teenagers dating parental consent

In England and Wales people cannot marry if they are aged 16 or 17 and do not have parental consent.(In the UK, the age of sexual consent for women is 16).In Scotland both parties must be at least 16 years of age (parental consent is not required).A few years ago changes in the law allowed couples to get married in all sorts of places (known as a civil Wedding Ceremony).Most weddings take place on Saturday afternoons, this is very much the “peak period” in any week for getting married.
