Why do people look down on 20 something moms??

 I can kind of see why they'd have an issue with teen unwed moms, but what's the issue with young 20 somethings who are married? Why is age such a problem?

I never really cared what others thought if me. My family loves me that's all that matters. I do.t let negative people who think they know it all in our life.
I was 20 when I got preggers 21 when I had him. He's now 8. & we now have a 1 yr old.
So & I have been together 10 yrs come this June & are not married. It works for us.

I've never had any issues in my 20's.  I'm now 29, but I had my oldest at 19.

I am hoping no one looks down on me, I will be 25 when the baby is born...

What is the deal with people and age? It doesn't matter how old you are, it matters how mature and responsible you are.

It was weird when I got married at 23 a lot of people would say I was too young to get married and I would respond that my mother got married when she was 21 and my grandmother got married when she was 18, so y'all need to stop judging.

I don't think it matters whether or not she's married. Age doesn't define a good mom.
For the record, I was married at 19 and had my Son five days before I turned 21.

Haha, I desperately need my vacation. My brain is fried. I meant to say that I'll be 29 next month.
