I donít understand. Why are so many high school age kids so eager to be engaged or get married in high school? Can someone give me the reason or reasons that younger adults are so eager to hook up with someone in a relationship that is supposed to last for the rest of their life. Iím confused.

alot of my friends parnets got married young like 18 19. whats it matter? love is love and if u can find someone willing to settle down with u and help u in life then thats great. mostly its 18 year olds. and some that are getting married have a great guy behind them and would go as far as planning if they wasnt a real man and care. teens can get engaged and plan house all they want but 9 out of 10 times the guy just does that to get in ur pants. many ppl engaged dont end up getting married there is very few that do. so i thin its a good thing why judge them? when their parnets got married young to and most the time they last. not all marriages will but its their life not urs.

Pregnancy is the biggest reason they get married.

I like totally agree with you. Hell with all the shacking up kids do today why do the so called right thing and get married. I have lived with three guys already. Course I guess I would get married if I could get a guy to ask me lol. My mom is still hung up on the if you can get the milk for free stuff. Well mom it is a little too late for this one. Most of my high school girl friends were hooking up in grade school. Committment is a total waste of time in this day and time.

When I graduated back in the day. Not that long ago really. There were 3 couples and only one got married right out of high school. The other two couple lived together and broke up and lived together and broke up. Super strange the ocuple that got married made it. Course they were just a little different anyway. At our ten year reunion last year there they were still together. How boring to be with the same person for that long. I would be bored out of my mind. Variety is the spice of life and hey our society has accepted the shacking up stuff. Go for it kids. Maybe when I am a little older I might finally settle down. Still to young to do that.

Only an idiot would get pregnant these days by accident. Pills are given out everywhere. And there is always a place as close as Knoxville that will take care of things. Most of my girl friends have visited Knoxville several times. May sound heartless but our society says thats okay to. Girls you don't have to live like the stone age these days. Get with the rest of us. Any good girls are made fun of now.

Lovin this thread! Only to young to marry but not to go all the way! Shack up, love um and leave um, nobody cares about being good today. Have a blast. I can't stand goody 2 shoes girls. Everybody and I mean everybody is living together. Need to try that thing out. If girls had to go back to the stone age nobody would be having sex. Girls just like the guys are not going to wait now to have some fun. Whats good for one is good for the other.

the sad thing is two girls i know have got married. they WAS NOT LIVING TOGETHER before they got married. so there was no milk being gave away alot for one there men are in the army and marines. thats love right there if u can stick there with someone through everything. they was not pregnant and still not thinking about babies. if u have sex and get pregnant i think u should be a women and have that baby. u may not have the right home for it to live it. but there is so many ppl in this world that are waiting everyday for someone to give away their baby. i think if u open ur legs for a man and get knocked up u should grow up and do the RIGHT THING and not take the easy way out. we all know what sex is for and its not just mm let me fuck u then leave no! stop being wh*res! anyways back to the marriage. half the time ppl do not know the whole story and i hate this site because all ppl do is be narrow minded. some ppl do get married for wrong reasons and if ppl are getting married im pretty sure they are past the living together. most teens dont even move out till they are indeed married so why sit there and act like everyone is living together when talking about teens moving out has nothing to do with marriage! stop being all mad because ur man didnt marry u and think teens are making the same mistake. pretty sure if they was only wanting the milk as u say they would not have got married. the end!

I am the mother of two girls. My oldest who dated a very decent boy in high school wanted to get married to her high school sweetheart. We were totally against it. She had scholarships waiting for her and nobody gets married before a college degree. At least not these days. She ended up listening to us. Away to college she went with our blessings. She got into partying with guys that were anything but decent. She partied more than she studied. She ended up marrying a total loser and divorcing him shortly. Our other daughter wanted no part of college and married one of the sweetest boys on earth when she was only 20. They saw hard times financially but they truly love each other and went on to get their college educations. What I am saying is that one size does not fit all. For me I wish I had listened to my older daughter. The things she told us about what goes on in college was disgusting at best. I think we have allowed our thinking to be warped. The only reason kids don't get married now at an earlier age is because the kids are having sex, living together or staying in motels or at a friend's house. They brag about it. They seem to have no shame and some parents even encourage this behavior. A sense of right over wrong does not exist and maybe that is why America and the world is being punished. Yes punished for all the disgusting things people are doing in the name of being cool. I see no end to the downfall of the world.

You gave the proper advice to your older daughter. While you may look at it as "one size fits all", it still was sound advice-if one looks at the odds for success.

I would counsel any young person to wait until after getting an education before getting married.

This is ridiculous. What the hell does it matter? It's just a number. I'm only 19 and I've had my share of partying and all that shit. And I'm now happily engaged and absolutely love my fiancee and no matter what age I always will. I want to spend my life with him and I plan to. All this nonsense about being bored after so many years, you've obviously never experienced true love. Because if you have you'd know there is never a dull moment with the one you love more than anything. I'm sure you're all thinking I'm full of shit, but 10 years down the road I'm sure i'll still preach the same thing about the same amazing guy I've loved for so many years. I really do pitty you that you don't have someone so amazing in you're life! As for you other young people who are in love. Fķck what anyone has to say about it! If you love someone and want to spend your life ttogether... do it! No one knows how you feel about someone, except you. And if you know he/she is the one, who cares what anyone else thinks. They're just jealous that they dont have what you do!

I muswt have missed this earlier. Are you like totally kidding me? Babe we are way past the shot gun wedding days lol. If anything having a baby on board is a sure fire way of sending the guy running. Remember abortion is legal now days sweetie. Besides the way girls and guys sleep around about the only way you can even get a guy to pay some kind of child support is by havingn to have some kind of test to prove who the daddy is. Young old or somewhere in between marriage is a lame idea. I can't name one couple living together or married who are true to each other. Not one.

Darlin there is no such thing as true love. Sorry to burst your little bubble. Even folks who stay married aren't faithful to each other. They just stay together for the kids or so they don't have to give away their stuff. But I once dreamed of true love. The years just amke you hard.
