MCLS § 551.51reads:
“Sec. 1. A marriage in this state shall not be contracted by a person who is under 16 years of age, and the marriage, if entered into, shall be void.”In the given instance, as you are below the age of 16 years, if you get married to your boyfriend, your marriage may be held void.
