So I graduated high school last year and today I found out that some girl in my class is already married. WTF? Does anybody else think that is completely retarded? She has no job, he's in the marines and they don't come from money so their parents won't be supporting them. I don't see the ending well for her.

So? Friends of mine are in that same situation, and they're doing well.

There were like 3 chicks in my class in HS who were married and had a baby while still in HS. And tons of other who were pregnant or already had a baby.

You don't think they should have waited until they were financially stable? They have almost no income. Doesn't seem well thought out to me.

I don't know anyone who got married that young, but I know people that age who have kids. Some had them at like 16/17. So I guess it's not that unusual.

Nobody in my high school got pregnant over the 4 years I was there. The ones who get married from 18-21 are usually Christian or otherwise religious, though.
#9
My parents got married when they were both 18. They're still married after 35 years. I guess it works sometimes.

Not that unusual? Who the hell would get married when you're barely out of high school? Kids these days are messed.

I have friends that got married right out of high school and seem to be doing well. One girl is going to college at the same place I am while her husband does...I have no idea actually. Her dad probably helps out, though. He runs the vocational school around here.

I agree.

I know people who got pregnant at 15, I know people that do heroin and I know alcoholics. I don't judge them or question their choices because I'm not an asshole.

Sure it's stupid and probably won't work, but it's their lives and their decisions. You don't think it's a good idea, which is why you aren't married right now. But they do, and they aren't hurting you by doing so, so let them give it a go. They'll either learn or it'll work and you'll look stupid for condemning it, but either way, it's not your choice.

A military job should be enough to support the two of them if they live a modest life for now.


If she's happy then I guess that's all that really matters right?

I think that they probably could have waited until they had a stable income for the foreseeable future. You can still love someone and live together just the same and not be married until your finances are planned for.
#25
I know someone who got engaged right out of high school but is waiting until college is done to get married. I really don't care, i feel people can do whatever they want if they seriously feel it's the right idea. Their business not mine.

I also hate how people say "It's not my business but..." and "I don't really care but...". If you really wanted to leave it to them, you would not be passing judgement.

My mom was 17 when she had me and was subsequently married and my parents are still together.

It's not impossible to make work, even if you have limited finances as mine did. If the parents are willing to sacrifice and "grow up" it can be done. Takes maturity though.

It's what my parents did. Out of high school, have a kid, marry, both 18. So basically, considering my brother and I are still alive, I don't see a problem here.

Maybe they really love each other and their parents accepted and supported it and would try to help in any way they can, maybe not financially, but just supporting them goes a long way.


I dunno. It's their lives, not for me to judge.

Personally, I would not get married, ever, since I am a lonely bastard.

Marines basically support them themselves. Depending on whether you live on base you either get a housing allowence or a free home. Huge tax breaks. You basically get all necessities paid for and then income on top of that.

My ex's sister got married straight out of high school. Their family was kind of crazy religious though, and the married sister was a legit nymphomaniac. I guess they all thought that marriage was the best way to get that controlled.

My dad was born when his parents were 17 and 18 , they struggled but everything worked out. They stayed married until my dad's dad passed away in a plane crash. For some people it works out, for others it does not.

On a related note: A guy in my mum's work was married for 40 years and just found out his wife's been cheating on him. How ****ed is that?
