A guide to marriages and civil partnerships

You can get married or enter into a civil partnership in the UK if you’re:

  • age 16 or over
  • free to marry, or form a civil partnership (single, divorced or widowed)
  • not closely related to your partner

You need permission from your parents or guardians if you’re under age 18.
