You will need your parents permission no matter what. I STRONGLY suggest you not get married just because you are pregnant and I even more strongly suggest NOT getting pregnant just so you can get married. Either one of these things shows a lack of maturity on both of your parts (you and the dad/husband-to-be).
If you are asking the age of consent, obviously this guy is older than you and if you are asking about permission to marry, you are obviously under 18. You are too young to be worried about babies and marriage. If the baby is already on it's way, WAIT AND SEE how your relationship goes once the baby is born before getting married. A baby changes your relationship in ways you would not believe and often stresses it to the breaking point. From a practical point of view, a baby makes things worse, not better and harder, not easier. If your relationship is not founded in a good, solid foundation it will not make it. Even good marriages are stressed by children because being a parent is hard. If you think it'll just be "Mommy, Daddy & Baby and happily ever after" you're wrong. People say they know that and they are ready but trust me, you're never ready. That goes for any age. Being younger only makes it harder and the relationship between a teenager mother and father almost never lasts. Mine did but it was the only one I know of.
Just slow down a little. Focus on the baby right now. And if there is no baby yet, for God's sake wait on that until later. A lot later.
3 kids, 10, 6 and almost-2. Had first child at 16 and know a lot of people who had children in their teens.
