I agree...make sure that you are financially able to take care of yourself and emotionally stable enough to be by yourself before you marry. Do not go from your parents home to your married home. Create your own home first.

it has nothing to do with age really or for that matter money -- that being said -- in my opinion it is better to have a good education and/or job and most especially to have some life experiences. i agree that one should not go from living with their parents to being married as i have told both of my college aged children many times. You need to have a time in your life that you are not responsible to and not responsible for anyone other than yourself -- marriage is not easy and it doesnt matter at what age you do it but the younger you are when you do the more you will wonder if you "missed out" on something and the less equipped you will be to deal with issues that come up in ANY marriage. I married at 20 and have been with my husband for over 25 years through lots of ups and downs but my hope is my children will wait longer and be more settled in their choice of career. OH -- and most importantly no matter when you marry be sure you know how your partner feels about his parents, money and children

I got married just out of High School and I can say from experience that is was hard. My husband and I have had some really bad arguments. Ones that would have caused divorce for many young couples.
I would never tell anyone to get married just out of High School. I was fortunate enough to marry a man who could take care of me. But, what if it would not have worked out between us. I would have been left with no education and 2 children to raise.
Now, 16 years later, I look back with NO regrets just a better knowledge of the steps I should have taken. I now have a college degree and know that if anything ever happened to him that I could care for my family.
My recommendations is to get out of High School, experience life which includes going to college and furthering your education. Take care of yourself before you have to take care of others.
I would not trade the last 16 years for anything. I love my life, my husband, and my children. However, I can say this, Not everyone can do that!

The younger your age the more likely the marriage will end in divorce. Just remember these statistics: Half of all marriages end in divorce. For christians, that number increases to about 55% of marriages that end in divorce.(They say its because Christians really believe in the sanctity of marriage and when the marriage is bad, they allow themselves the right to find a partner who provides the beautiful matrimony they believe in so dearly.) Of those who remain married, close to half of them when asked say that are unhappily married.

So, I'm married now for 13 yrs and it was horrible for many years, but now its beautiful. Most wouldn't have stuck it out long enough to get to the good part. We only did because of the kids.

Take your time, when you think you know someone wait another year. If during your relationship you have any doubts, do not get married! Marriage can be great, but you have to take your time and get to know yourself and the other person really good first

My Dad told me once, "Y'know, once maybe twice it was the guys' fault, but after a while you kinda have to start looking at the common denominator found in the relationships." He was right.

I married at 23 after living on my own, college and started to establish a career. I have been married for over 16 years and I while I think that I experienced alot before marriage there are still so many things I wish I had done, like traveling more. My advice: go see all the things you want to see, if you are truly in love, he/she will be willing to wait for you. Once you have kids, the priorities shift to them and your spouse. If I had to do over, I'd have waited till atleast 28. I really feel like I came into my own around that age. Only YOU know what is right for you. I agree with the post on being able to take care of yourself. I see so many young women get married with the thought of " oh I know I will finish school" but life gets in the way and it so easy to say " I'll take a year off and then go back" then you have a baby and it gets even harder to go back. Just take it slow. Don't get in a rush. You can have a completely fulfilling life and not get married too young.

You have to follow your heart. I married my highschool sweetheart 2 weeks after I turned 18. we have now been married for 12 years and have a wonderful relationship. The key to any good marriage is communication, compassion and comprimise. I do not advise anyone to just rush in to marriage reguardless of age. You must know the person, what you love and what you don't. you will know when the time is right.Also, if the word divorce is mentioned before the I do, don't marry.
BTW - I dated my husband for 4 years before we married. We went through everything a couple could go through before we married but we always worked it out and we have never split up.
