So I've been watching this show again, I just can't help it! On today's show there is an 18 year old ex-beauty queen getting ready to marry a 22 year old. They have 2 kids already who look to be at least 2 and 1 years old meaning she had the kid at around 16. Ok, so kids aside, these two are way too immature to get married. She's so worried he's going to cheat on her at his bachelor party, even though he reminds her that her Uncle will be there. This should be a lesson for people of all ages. If you honestly can't trust your guy to be faithful at his bachelor party (or any other party) than you really shouldn't be marrying him! Same goes for guys worried about what their girlfriends might do at their bachelorette parties. I'm sure these two will go through with the wedding, only 9 mins in so I'm just guessing! What do you think about these 2 issues: 1) Should young and immature people get married just because they have kids? I had friends who did that, then got divorced shortly after. I think if you are so immature as these two are acting than they shouldn't get married and would be better off having other parents and adults around to help. However if they are getting married not just because of the kids but because they actually like each other, than that's a better reason. 2) If a friend is seriously worried about her/his fiance being faithful, would you think she/he shouldn't get married? I would probably ask my friend if she/he realllly thinks her/his fiance would do something like that, and if the answer was YES or even MAYBE, I would be against the wedding. I mean, why do some people think that as soon as they get married a cheater or untrustworthy person will suddenly turn into an honest person? It's not gonna happen. Thoughts/opinions?

I don't think that anyone should get married just because they have a child together. You might not really even know the father of your child the way you think you do. As far as worrying about her husband being faithful, I think that's a pretty natural suspicion to have when you are younger. All through high school I was convinced that my boyfriends would cheat on me, it's just from being immature and not confident.

That's true, they may think the guy is a certain way until they get married and then realize that while their boyfriend was sweet, their new husband isn't ready to be tied down. As for your answer to the faithfulness, that backs up my point about being too young and immature to get married. If you have no confidence that the guy won't cheat on you, it's not time to get married. Thanks for your response!
