Mental Capacity

In most states for marriage to be legal, both parties must possess sufficient mental capacity at the time of the marriage ceremony.

What is sufficient mental capacity? This is just simply the capacity to comprehend the nature of the marriage contract, resulting duties as well as responsibilities. If a person has been judged mentally incompetent, insane, or is mentally retarded to the extent that they cannot make decisions on their own, in most ststes they will be judged not capable of contracting in marriage .
