As I was browsing trough the Internet, I came across an old article that was posted regarding young marriage. Apparently, getting married before the age of twenty five is too young. According to the article, the Huffington Post had asked the government to forbid the practice of marriage for young people. They believe that couples should not be allowed to get married before the age of twenty five. However, Steven Crowder believes otherwise. He believes you can still marry young and live a long and happy life with your spouse. He uses a personal example and states that his fiancée and himself are getting married “young.” He also includes a list of his family members and friends who have been married young and don’t seem to have a problem. So, yeah it is possible to have a successful young marriage. He states:
“My parents were married “young” and have been so happily for twenty eight years.
The bride-to-be’s parents were married in their teens, and they’ve been celebrating their love for well over forty years.
The bride’s grandparents were married exceedingly young. They’ll be going on seventy years soon.
The pastor marrying us married his high school sweetheart. Over twenty years and going strong!
The best man (my brother) married just below your government-sanctioned cutoff… He’s still doing very well with his gorgeous, loyal, loving wife. (And, might I add, good for him, we didn’t think he’d do so well for himself.)
Two more of my remaining groomsmen married when either they or their wives were under the age of twenty-two.”
I have witnessed many couples marry young. Some of them are actually my friends. When one is ready to marry, whether young or old, it is their decision. It is not the government’s decision. I found this article interesting in that the next thing the government would be controlling is when someone would be allowed to marry.
