Who can get married in Vermont?

Two people who are at least 18 years old can obtain a civil marriage in Vermont. If you are at least 16, but under 18, you will need consent of a parent or guardian. Your parent or guardian should go with you to the town clerk’s office to sign an affidavit giving you permission to marry. (The affidavit is on the back of the marriage license application and is a legal part of the license.) By Vermont law, no one under the age of 16 may marry in Vermont.
