What is the minimum age for consenting to a marriage in South Dakota?

In South Dakota, any unmarried person who is eighteen years old or older, and who is not otherwise disqualified, is capable of consenting to a marriage. However, if either person is between the age of sixteen and eighteen, he or she must provide the county register of deeds with a notarized statement of consent to marry from one parent or legal guardian.
