Oh, we went and got married 4 months after I graduated high school. Pretty sure it was the 2nd stupidest decision I've ever made but it was also one of the best.

I got married at 18 almost 19, after dating for 5 months.

I got married at 20. To me, that wasn't too young, but I wouldn't have wanted to be any younger, either. And it lasted for almost 5 years, so I think we did pretty good!



And I did get to drink at my own wedding. :D

I think anything younger than 18 is too young. I don't know, that's when you're legally an adult right, that's when you should be able to make your own adult decisions. I guess it sounds stupid but that's because I'm not putting much thought to it. :? I don't even think marriage is taken all that serious now a days. People go into marriages thinking, "Well, if it doesn't work out. We can always get divorced."



Before some bitch decided they want to jump down my throat. I'm well aware not all marriages are like that, but I'm pretty sure a lot of them are. Sue me if you disagree. :wink:

exactly! i believe if you're getting married, you're in it for the long haul. anything short of cheating or abuse can more than likely be worked out.

I dunno.
If you get married at 18 and suddenly realize at 28 that you're no longer compatible with each other, divorce is a viable option. We're serial monogamists for the most part but serial means that we continually enter into long term partnerships; not always lifelong ones.

i can somewhat agree, but i think it should get to an extreme and you try every possible option to work on it before calling it quits.

I agree, except for the cheating part. Talking from experience, I don't think cheating is all that bad. At least not to throw a whole relationship, commitment off the rocks. Specially if it's the first time it happens. If the partner cheats again then absolutely. I don't really judge, to each it's own but it does shock me to see how many BG would give up. Whenever someone posts about their husbands being alcoholics, or not helping around the house, etc. everyone is so quick to jump on the whole, "leave him, divorce him" card. Instead of advising counseling or anything that can possibly be done to save the marriage and leave happily ever after.

i agree with the getting him help. however, i don't on the cheating. i think it's different to cheat when dating as apposed to cheat while married, esp with a child involved.
