Depends, age of emancipation in the state of Alabama is 19 years, if one has a job and is

independent then 18 years, if one joins the Marines at age 17 years with parental permission (like I did), if one gets married, then you will be considered an adult for most purposes, though full emancipation (drinking, voting, etc.) does not come till age 21. A simple rule would be that of the duck, if it walks like a duck, quakes like a duck, looks like a duck, and swims like a duck, it must be a DUCK.
