Can a 18 year old girl can marry a 26 year old manWatch
although I would tell every 18 year old to go live a little before making such a commitment.
- neither of them are already married
- the other person is not a sibling, parent, child, uncle or aunt, niece or nephew
- they are not the child/parent of an ex. If you want to marry your ex-husband's child or parent, you have to be 21, and there's something about someone having to be dead, but I don't quite remember that bit.
Families have no say or should have no say in this. My only concern for the 18 year old is whether they really understand what it means to be married, it requires a lot of sacrifices and effort. But tbh 26 year olds, 36 year olds, 46 year olds get into marriages without knowing what it actually requires of them to work. So age is irrelevant in the end, just make sure you realise what you're getting into. Both for the 18 year old and the 26 year old. Age really is just a number.
