Before a couple can be legally married in the United States, they must apply for a marriage license at the county courthouse and meet certain requirements. These requirements can vary by state to state, but if one of these is not met, it could provide a loophole that makes divorce easy--because you were never legally married! You Have To Be Of Age In many U.S. states, 18 is the age at which you are considered an adult, and the age you must be to apply for a marriage license.
Hello, I'm Christina Miller. Have you ever been fascinated with why the law works the way it does? Ever since I was in junior high, I had an intense interest in anything related to our legal system, whether it be a crime drama on television, a judge show or a legal case covered on the news. I followed it all. As time progressed, I began learning about how the actual legal system worked and not just the fictionalized version of our legal system. This has lead me to start writing my own blog posts about law that I hope will help others.
