you should look up the state laws

Look up the laws in the US; most states have provisions that allow for persons to marry under age 18, and you are generally considered a non-adult, i.e., child, until you are 18. The only point I am making is that you cannot really make simple assumptions about laws, especially in the US where every state is doing something different.
