Re: Engaged too young? - September 9th 2010, 08:24 PM

I do think people are getting engaged too young, but more than anything, too quickly.

I knew this couple in high school, they were 17, had been dating for like, a month, and he proposed to her. She said Yes, they got married right after finishing high school, and if I'm not mistaken, they divorced a year or two later.

Age isn't the biggest issue I'm seeing, but rather the hurry to rush into an engagement/marriage with someone. I mean, do you REALLY need to get engaged when you've only been dating a couple months? NO! However, if people who have been together for, say, 2 or 3 years, got together at 16, got engaged at 18 and married at 20, I don't see an issue with that.

Dare to be Different, to be Weird, to be a Freak.
Overall, Dare to be yourself.
