Is there a minimum age for marriage in Israel?


Yes – 18 –the age of maturity, but a male or female minor, who has reached the age of 16 at least, can obtain permission to marry earlier, if there are special reasons justifying this. The family court will not decide on an application for permission to marry early unless it has received a report from a social worker if the potential bride or groom is between 16-17 years old.
