What Is The Marrying Age For Texas

How to get married in texas? ?

You have received some totally stupid answers. Sorry......

Here are the facts from the county website.

Scroll down the page to find the information about marriage license. Tarrant County & Dallas County both charge $71 (cash) for the license. And it looks like $31 for a "informal marriage." I would assume that means in the court house, but I don't know that for sure. If you take the marriage class, you only have to pay $11 for the license.

The website says you have to have a picture driver's license, state ID or passport.

Texas Drinking laws with marriage license?

The law states that in order for you to be able to drink that you must be 21. If the establishment is caught serving you alcohol they could loose their liquor licenses, even if you bring your marriage licenses it doesn't not indicate that your 21 and able to drink. It just states that you got married and that is all.

Even though your fiance worked where they allowed this to happen, they were doing some thing that was illegal for them to do. Since the legal drinking age was 21, they could have gotten into a lot of trouble.

Hey, congratulations on your marriage to be. I wish you both all the happiness in the world that life can bring to two people.

1930s Texas Marriage - what was age with and without paremtal consent?

I'm tracing a 16 year old's Texas marrige in 1934-35 and it would really help if I knew whether she needed parental consent. Or how clesely they checked age if the girl looked quite adult. I can find the CURRENT laws, which is no help. What was it in 1930s?

In Texas can i a married legal age spouse buy alcohol for my minor husband at bars and licensed premises?

Yes you can at most places. I'm a Texan. My husband is a year younger than me, and last year when he was 20 and I was 21, we brought our marriage license and drivers licenses into a bar and he was able to drink(wow how desperate for alcohol). The only thing is they have to be in the same room with you at all times, just in case someone from the TABC comes in and checks ID's(the minor can't be without the older spouse 'supervising' them). Some corporate restauraunts(ex. olive garden,red lobster) wont allow it though just so they wont get stuck in the situation that I described and lose their liquor license...but most private owned restaraunts and bars will allow it!
