Void and voidable marriages.

A. All marriages that are prohibited by § 20-38.1 are void. B.

C. All marriages solemnized on or after July 1, 2016, when either or both of the parties were, at the time of the solemnization, under the age of 18 and have not been emancipated as required by § 20-48 shall be void from the time they shall be so declared by a decree of divorce or nullity.
