Article 21. Capacity of a citizen.
1. The ability of a citizen to acquire and exercise civil rights by his actions, to create civic duties for himself and to fulfill them (civil capacity) arises in full with the coming of age, that is, upon reaching the age of eighteen. 2. In the case when the law permits entry into marriage before attaining eighteen years of age, a citizen who has not attained eighteen years of age acquires full legal capacity from the time of entry into marriage. The legal capacity acquired as a result of marriage is preserved in full in the event of the dissolution of the marriage before attaining eighteen years of age. If the marriage is recognized as invalid, the court may decide on the loss of full legal capacity by the minor spouse from the time determined by the court.
