However, in some circumstances, a marriage license can be obtained earlier by a court decision. In particular, it is possible at the age of 16, if it is in the interests of the person. In special cases, the court may allow marriage from the age of 14. These include: pregnancy; birth of a child; de facto marital relationship. Read also: Conjugal duty or rape?
