people are love and respecting (now).
Join the movement.
I am twenty-one years old and I have been with my boyfriend since high school. Everyone says we are great together and affirms our relationship. We’re in college and have no debt–but I keep hearing statistics that younger couples getting married is not a recipe for success.
Since you’re so much older, wiser, etc., what do you think? Should we not get married?
Now that I feel adequately like a geriatric…lets begin with my “older person” answer.
In all seriousness, I do agree with you… it’s usually not wise for sixteen or seventeen year olds to get married because of the obstacles that they may face, but those obstacles are usually due to maturity. However, based on how you asked the question, it seems like you are more mature, in community, and thinking broadly about the future and have taken wise steps to get where you are today.
Here’s the thing: what’s important when choosing marriage is maturity… not age.
So, relax and lets chat about this more with a wise little youngin’ who has some words for you!
From my heart,
Joy and Brynn (with a dash of Steph and Beck)
