Common Law Marriage:

Under 18:Applicants under 18 years of age but over 16 need to have parental or court consent. The consent form must be signed before an Alberta marriage licence issuer, the clergy performing the ceremony or any person authorized to take affidavits. A male minor, under the age of 16 years, may not get married under any circumstances. The law does state that in some situations, a judge may say that parental consent is not necessary. It might be possible to marry under the age of 16 if you get a letter from a medical doctor saying that you are the mother of a living child or you are pregnant.
