its legal but a bit dodge ngl..... 18 and 26 are at v different stages in life and depending on how long you've been dating its Very dodgy- if you were a minor aged 16/17 dating a 24/25 year old it doesnt rly sit right idk

At 18 she can do whatever she wants.

although I would tell every 18 year old to go live a little before making such a commitment.

An 18 year old can marry anyone she likes so long as:

- 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.
Yes I agree with you that age is just an number.

Hey! Legally, yes. If this is an arranged marriage and you really don't want to do it, I think you should just talk to your parents, and try to get them to see reason. Talking to the guy might help too. Good luck <3

Yes, but why would you?

You haven't grown up yet, or experienced anything. At least wait until YOU are 26 before marrying.

Is this person asking the question asking for themselves? Cause these are more than enough answers telling them it’s legal ..

You can but it’s a bit dodgy cos boys that are so much older than you usually have bad intentions

OP, please consider everybody’s answers, not just the ones that agree with the position you want to take! A mature decision would be one in which each answer is considered and thought of before coming up with a balanced approach.
