Child Marriage*

is legal in 37 states of the USA.
There are no federal laws against it,
so minors can marry, with parental consent,
before they can vote, drink, or buy lottery tickets
in most of the country.
Some states have a minimum marriage age
ranging from 15 to 18. 

Four states   California, New Mexico, Oklahoma,
and Mississippi – do not specify any minimum age at all.

* One or both parties entering a union while under the age of 18
