Hi Yvette

 

Have a look at this page from The Guardian newspaper, up to date information, April this year. Seems they are only now changing the minimum age from 14

Until quite recently in Spain the age for marriage, of course with parental consent, was 12 for a girl and 13 for a boy.

Of course, with parential consent,  marriage at the age of 16 is permitted in UK

 I don't think that ex-pats would necessarily know the causes and conditions as they are probably historic. Spain has just got around to bringing the law into the 21st century.

There is no rhyme or reason can be found but this is Spain, so probally sat in goverment thought about it govermant voted all done and dusted, as this law has only just been changed in 11 years living here never heard any talk about it it just happens. Try the Goverment or a high ranking church person, Bishop etc, as GB45 said ex-pats probally don´t know, we are guests of this country and just follow thier laws, a small number of people (ex pats) arnt going to change the laws of Spain

Maybe the law was made to accomodate the gitanos and related groups in whose culture very young (and often arranged) marriages are the norm.

I was told by a Spanish Guardia Civil friend that was why when about 25 years ago the Spanish government tried to change the age of marriage (and sexual consent) from 12 for a girl,  13 for a boy, to 13 and 14 respectively,  it was defeated.

 

At that time, in the town where I lived, an English girl of 13 (pregnant) had married her Spanish boyfriend.
