I for one don't feel like I missed anything. I had dated plenty before getting married at 18. My husband who was 25 had already dated and experienced things too. We've been married almost 30 years and never once felt the need to separate.

I believe most marriages that young Absolutely fail, or require a separation at some point during the marriage since there will most likely be a time where one person feels as if they "missed out" on adult single/dating life.



However, screw real life factual statistics. This is cafemom, where everyone here is the exception so I'm pretty sure I'm going to get quoted about how they've been married since 18 and everyone is all honkey dorey...

I got married at 19 and we've been together for 11.5 years. I think that some work and some don't. It depends on the people involved.

I got married at 19, have been married for 14yrs. No I don't think all are doomed to fail. Many yes because so many are willing to walk out rather then stay and work things out.

Any marriage can be doomed regardless of age.

Doomed? No...not doomed....i forget the exact percentage....but, people who do marry young tend to have harder times in their marriage and odds are against them.

but, i would not say doomed...i know plenty of folks who have been together since highschool and are still going strong.
