You might want to focus on your education first. In any event, I don't know of any state that allows an unemancipated minor to get married without permission from his/her parents or legal guardian. If you don't live with or talk to your parents, with whom do you live? Do you have a legal guardian other than your parents? If not, then you'll have to wait until you reach the age of majority (18 in all but a small handful of states) to get married.

I suggest you visit the Family Law Center and read Marriage Law as a good resource to learn more about this subject matter.
FindLaw's Legal Heads-Up! newsletter can provide you with the legal resources you need to make informed decisions when law touches aspects of your everyday life.
