Ok listen up. I think I found "the one" as in the only one.
We want to tie the knot but I am getting concerned about something.
She is of legal age to marry in the country she is from and where we plan on getting married but the country where I plan on teaching next she is not of legal age (for consent or marriage).
Would this pose a problem or would they say that since we are legally married then everything is cool?

Because I have absolutely nothing to do today, and based on previous information he's given (and using this), I'm guessing she's an 18 or 19 year old from the Philippines who he plans on taking to either China or Papua New Guinea.

If you legally marry someone who has "reached of the age of majority in" and has been "legally married in" the country they are a "citizen/resident of" then the marriage is legal everywhere.

KEY words there are "AGE OF MAJORITY".

This implies that she is under 18, and you're going either to a West Coast state in the US or the Philippines (maybe). It would help if you at least stated which country you're planning on going to, but I not sure if anyone here could help.
