A judge of probate, issuing a license for the marriage of a minor contrary to the provisions of this chapter, forfeits $200 to the parent or to the guardian of such minor for the use of his ward, for which the parent or guardian may sue.  If it be shown that the parent or guardian consented to the marriage, or that at the time of the issuance of the license an affidavit was made by such minor, or some other credible person claiming to know the fact, that such minor was of age required by law, the penalty given by this section is not recoverable.
