CASPER, Wyo. — Under current Wyoming law, people can get married or enter civil unions if they are at least 16 years of age.
The Wyoming Legislature will consider a “child marriage restriction” bill that would raise the minimum age to 18. Both parties entering into marriages or unions would need to be 18.
The proposal would also modify the powers of parents and guardians when it comes to consenting to marriages or civil unions involving their children.
