How Can A Person Get Citizenship in the United States Other Than Through Marriage?
It is lawful for two people who are both 18 years of age to be married in New York.
Please see the following NY statute:
§ 15-a. Marriages of minors under fourteen years of age. Any marriage
in which either party is under the age of fourteen years is hereby
prohibited. Any town or city clerk who shall knowingly issue a marriage
license to any persons, one or both of whom shall be at the time of
their contemplated marriage actually under the age of fourteen years,
shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and on conviction thereof shall be
fined in the sum of one hundred dollars.
