Yes, they do. Consent in this sense is equated with the notion of individual freedom. It’s odd that conservatives would oppose that. And the notion of “age of consent” is a relatively recent idea when compared to the idea of marriage which goes back to the beginnings of society. It is one of the many ways in which marriage has been redefined throughout its long history.
