    yes you are it's none of my business but why would you get married at the age of 16? Let me tell you something one of my old friends got married at the age of 16 just like you and on her 18th birthday She divorced the guy and found out she was pregnant and when she found this out she went to the guy and told him he said i don't care. So she went home and killed her self so don't make mistakes like she did.

    These laws are really hard to work with... Right now I'm trying to figure out how to get around the whole parent-shooting-down thing. My girlfriend needs out of her house, and badly, but her parents won't let her move out. I just started researching, but I could really use any advice on the subject....

    I am 16 and I want to get emancipated. I don't know if iI have a good enough reason or not. I have health issues, I have seizures.I become incoherent and pass out. My mom will not take me to the doctor, because we dont have insurance. She is also an acholic. I have a job and a place to live is that a good enough reason?
