HiCustomer Thank you for asking your question on Just Answer.
It started in 1753 in England and Wales and it was named the Marriage Act of 1753 or Lord Hardwicke's Marriage Act and it called for the couple to be at least 21 years old and if they weren't then they needed the consent of the parent. Before this law the couple could be as young as seven years old and get married scary but true. They also had to get married in a church or the marriage wouldn't be legal.
Thank you again for trusting us with your problem.
