Question about marriageable age?
I am 22, my future wife-to-be is 14 years old, but we can’t marry yet because she haven’t reach marriagable age of 18(Malaysian marriageable age for male and female).
Both me and my wife to be are Malaysian.
We don’t want to wait for 4 years until she are 18. Can me and my wife-to-be legally married in foreign country?
