    I'm always shocked when i think about how young people are, even these days, when most of them decide to get married. We live in an age where almost everyone spends some time in college at a young age, both men and women are working and ppl have less and less time to get to really know their boyfriend or girlfriend and yet still tons of ppl are getting married way too young.

    I've always thought in today's age that about 30 years old is the right age to get married. Sure individual cases are different, but the 5 year range between 27 and 32, so you can date around and once you've found the right person date him/her long enough to know that's the one you want to marry.

    Half of marriages end in divorce, and as you see so many of these are from ppl who marry young.

    No. They end in divorce because people arent taught that marriage is work and then at the first sign of trouble, these immature people run away rather than deal with their issues.

    The younger you are the more likely you're going to be immature.


    I think for people with post high school education and careers, getting married a few years later makes sense. When you actually have a little bit of time to focus and spend time with your significant other before getting married and the stats back me up.

    Marriage is a prison.

    I was married for 5 years, never again. I don't believe marriage is compatible with todays society imo. Your stats say half of marriages end in divorce, well the rest of them are mostly people who are used to being miserable and are content to wallow in it for the rest of their lives, not me.

    You are lucky, most prisoners are lucky to get any attention from the warden once a month.

    You got any kids?

    I kinda agree that marriage seems like an extremely hard thing to be successful and happy with for a full lifetime, but then again i want kids and marriage seems to be the best scenario for child raising.

    I agree with this general statement that divorce is, a lot of times, the result of marrying to young and/or rushing into marriage.
