Do you think people that get married when they are young are doomed? I got married at19.
Maturity, and the willingness to commit to being a family and team forever depend on the people involved and not soley an age. We married a few weeks after our 21st birthdays, and are still enjoying our marriage almost 14 years later.
no its all about maturity, not age. me and my husband got married when he was 19 and I was 22. 10 yrs later we still going strong.
Not necessarily... My Il's got married young and they will celebrate 43 years of marriage in February... Dh and I got married at 20 after dating for 4 years and we will celebrate 17 years next month.. my brother and his wife got married in their early 20's and they will celebrate 25 years in June.. my BIL and his wife just celebrated 16 years this past August and they got married when they were 18...
I think it depends on the couple, how they view marriage, and the effort they put into their marriage.

It depends what you consider "success". Any marriage can fail. If you stay together but aren't happy, if your marriage is more like an endurance competition where you feel that you have to outlast your spouse, that's definitely a failed marriage. Marriage shouldn't be about how long you're together. If you jump into it at a young age, not knowing much about yourself, yes, you probably won't be happy in the long run.
Still, I don't think it's about being young as much as it is misconceptions about what marriage and partnership should be.
If you learn how to communicate and make an effort to grow together and not apart, you'll be happier staying together. Quality, not quantity is the goal.
And orgasms. Lots and lots of orgasms.
Quoting Anonymous:Statistically yes. Because most young people are immature. I knew this post would be full of "I got married at _____teen years and we're still married" comments.
