Hi,
I’m hoping to get married in England but I’m 17. And mum and dad are divorced and I don’t speak to my dad. Can I get married with one parents consent?

You’ll have to get permission from both of your parents if they are married, or if they were married when you were born. If they aren’t, you’ll just need permission from whoever has parental responsibility for you. If your parents say you can’t get married you may be able to get permission from a court.

If they were married when I was born I need both parents permission?

I’ve also looked into getting married in Scotland. But the steps for doing that are so complicated to me. Do you know anything about that?

This is just UK site and not Scotland
