An Act To Ban Child Marriage
Sec. 1. 19-A MRSA §652, sub-§8, as amended by PL 1997, c. 683, Pt. E, §5 and affected by §6, is further amended to read:
Under current law, a marriage license may be issued to parties who are under 16 years of age with the written consent of their parents, guardians or legal custodians and the consent of the probate judge in the county where each minor resides. This bill amends the law to prohibit the issuance of a marriage license to a person under 16 years of age.
