Jeeze, is it just me or is everyone getting married younger and younger. Its kinda funny. Back in the "old days" people would be getting married at 18 & 19. And then it started to get later and later now its coming back and getting younger again. Do you know anyone young that just got married or engaged. Its so weird seeing your friends getting married!!

I was in my 32 when I got married. I know people who are younger who get married. I think that there are too many people married at a young age. I think it depends on finacial situations and if they are emotionally ready. I know when I was not ready to get married at the age of 18.

Well, women got married young because they had no other options. Women wee wives and mothers and nothing more. They were not expected and sometimes even not allowed to further their education or pursue a career. There were very few options available for women and most of which were menial and low-paying. This is also why divorce was so uncommon. Women could not support themselves so they were trapped by needing their husband to support them. Socially, it had nothing to do with people being "more mature" or "falling in love" or being able to "work it out" better. There simply were no other options. Kids are getting married younger now partly because they're not being pushed or inspired to further their education, partly because they don't have any sound voice of reason when they "fall totally totally in love" and end up pregnant or something. They try to act older than their are, think they know everything and try to use "they did it in the old days!" as some kind of validation. However it almost never works and they end up divorced by 25.

Hmm.. I started noticing that when I was in my early 20's but now that I'm quite older, I notice that most of my friends are getting married late. I am still not married and honestly their wedding photos make me smile at the same time makes me feel that I may never be able to post wedding photos of myself because I would not get married.
