Do you think people that get married when they are young are doomed? I got married at19.
and really happy, probably the most lovey-dovey, I've ever seen an older couple, especially since they've been together since MIL was 15.
We married at 18/20. Still married 34 1/2 yrs later.
No, of course not. Many young couples stay married their whole lives. Generations ago, before divorce became acceptable, it was the norm. It depends on the people, how much they want the marriage to work or whether they give up easily. I think a lot of people now give up at the first sign of trouble. Some couples get divorced over the craziest thing or after only trying for a few months.It is a lot easier to divorce now, also. People don't look down on divorcee' like they use to. I truly believe any couple can make a marriage work if they both work together and respect one another. No marriage is doomed, if it was a true marriage in the beginning, regardless of age.
These days, I think marrying young is almost guaranteed not to last. Times are certainly different in terms of marriage. My parents married at 18 and 21 and still ended up divorced 20 years later. These days though, 20 years would qualify for a trophy.
my parents were 18 and 19 together since 14 they are still married dh and I moved in together when I was 18 married at 20 and almost 24 just celebrated 16 years :) dh grandparents got married at 18 and 17 (he lied about his age had no birth cert to be able to work ect she knew he was pretending to be 20) they were married till he died at 89 (real age took some work but it was figured out homebirth and before records was hard but preaty sure 89 was the age) dh parents got married days after his mom turned 18 dad was already 18 they are still married...
We started dating when I was 15, found out I was pregnant when I was 19, got married. Been married 11 years, together 15. I do not see a divorce in our near future.
