HARRISBURG, Pa.-- Governor Tom Wolf signed into law House Bill 360, which sets 18 as the minimum age to obtain a marriage license in Pennsylvania.

“Setting the minimum age to obtain a marriage license will help prevent child exploitation,” said Gov. Wolf. “Marriage is a sacred and serious commitment that should be undertaken with love by two adults, not by children being exploited by unscrupulous adults.”

Pennsylvania is the third state to fully outlaw marriage for people under the age of 18.
