The court may require that each parent contribute to the support of the children in proportion to the relative financial ability of each. Child support terminates upon the emancipation of the child. Emancipation occurs when the child:
a) Attains the age of 21 years, or
b) Marries, or
c) Discontinues full-time enrollment in school and obtains full-time employment prior to attaining the age of 21 years, or
d) Voluntarily moves from the home of the custodial parent or guardian and establishes independent living arrangements and obtains full-time employment prior to attaining the age of 21 years.
