When do you think people are to young to be married? I was married young, but I feel like I made the right choice. I know alot of people would be against how young I was. What do you think is to young?

Marriage is a state of life where great responsiblity is a must. If the couple is not yet ready to face responsibility to make a good family, I considered that couple as still young no matter of their age. Too young for me is that state of life where you are not yet sure of how to make life a happy and harmonious one. Marriage is like acting-like god, you pro-create another creature to live on this earth and molding, norturance and guidance are basic necessities in the formation of the behavior of such creatures who will dominate the earth after their parents.

young marriage could be facing an immature decision-making. Can involve emotion and ego inside the role. So, be wise. Learn more and ask from your older about your problems. Don't want to regret something you didn't want to.

I think if you're old enough to look after yourself then you're old enough to decide whether or not you can marry. I am not a big believer in marriage, i am a big believer in commitment, communication and love though. Marriage today; is a piece of paper. People can be married without a piece of paper and a ring. I think it's sad that in some countries; girls are forced into marriage. In Afghanistan girls as young as 7 are sold by their parents into marriage, it's heart breaking. I am 27 and feel too young to get married. When i meet a guy i can love, i will commit to him and love him, but i will only marry him if one of us or both of us are very wealthy.

I think there is nothing wrong with young age. I mean above than 18. But must understand the obligation in marriage life.

I've never really thought about it. I know friends are married now and I'm 23 and I haven't yet. I guess it just depends on if the person knows what they want. Age I don't think makes a difference or never really thought about it closely. Sometimes it works out and sometimes it doesn't. Me, when I get married, which I plan to do so, I'm looking for longterm and not just a short term and it's over type deal. I haven't quite figured out who I am going to marry but only time will tell. I don't think there's anything wrong with marrying young to be honest but that's my view.

I've been married to in a young age. And now we both know that we are wrong. Marriage is not just simply going to the altar, exchanging vows... then go. It is more of being one, being faithful and responsible with the vow that we gave to our beloved one. I think we should give it enough time... But for you, congratulations! Not all is as lucky as you.

Hello TripleS519, It doesn't matter if you get married at the young age but at least, you should know what will happen to your life after getting married. Life is no bed of roses. If you think that marriage life is just happy moments and wonderful memories, then you are wrong. Too many things and aspects to be considered before you take the decision to end your 'full of freedom' life. Sharing everything with your another half is not as easy as you see in those romantic movies *smiles*
