Hello! As you all know, my name is Elizabeth. I am very new here! To start you off, I hear you have to be 16 with parent's consent to get married in NY. Now gay marriage is legal in NY. Do you have to be 16 to get married both ways (gay and straight)? Is there a different age limit regarding of same sex marriage?

To my understanding, in all the areas where marriage equality has been achieved, the age limits -- and all other kinds of legal limits and issues with legal marriage -- remain the same.
