Only if both Are 21 can the License be issued immediately upon application. Six couples who applied the first two Days had to wait for their licenses. Written consent of Parent or guardian is required for issuance of a marriage License to a Man not less than 18 but less than 2 and a woman not less than 16 but under 18. If the male is under 18 and the female is under 16, a probate court order is required for issuance of a marriage License. Parental consent also is required. Before the court can Issue its order some interested party must petition the court that each minor is physically and mentally qualified to assume full mar tial and parental duties or that it is in the Best interest of society that the marriage be Pef mixed. The Profitte judge must order an examination of the minor by the county physician and Hole a hearing on the petition. The physician must testify at the hearing. Only then can the pro Bate judge decide whether a boy under 18 and a girl under 1 should be issued a marriage Cense. Under the old Law a couple could be issued a marriage License without parental Consen or a waiting period if both were 18 or Over. Probate court review was required Only if they Wen under 15. The new Law is aimed at eliminating quickie marriages 0 juveniles in Idaho.
