Benefits of getting Married Early

Have in mind that  getting married in your early 20s is a norm.
Now it seems like tying the knot young is a social faux pas that everyone is
shying away from. First you go to school, then you graduate, establish a career,
gain financial security, and then settle down with your SO. So where are the
few who are defying the status quo? I searched them out, and I've found that
there are actually many women in my life — whether they are friends from
college, women I've worked with, neighbours or family members — who married
young and have no regrets. So what is it about getting married young that has
women saying "I do" before they even graduate college? I asked women
who married between the ages of 18 and 23 to share what they believe to be the

benefits of getting married at a young age and gathered their responses below:

  1. You're unavoidably poor when you're young, which
    helps you learn and gain financial stability together. When you start out
    with nothing, you learn to be grateful for anything.
  2. If you're looking to start a family, re-productively
    your body is better equipped to have babies at a younger age.
  3. You're used to making someone else your first
  4. You celebrate many events and milestones together
    that people who marry later in life may not get the opportunity to.
  5. You grow up together.
  6. While you're young you can enjoy the complete life
    adventure with your closest friend.
  7. You and your spouse are not set in your ways quite
    yet. You can mold and shape each other as time goes on.
  8. You learn to compromise as you approach some of
    life's biggest decisions hand in hand.
  9. Support. When you're starting your career or in
    school or moving every couple years, it's so nice to have a cheerleader
    all the time.
  10. You let go of selfish habits before you develop
    them. It's not always about where you want to go or what you want to see,
    and you learn to involve another person.
  11. Marriage at a young age makes you both more
    accountable, to each other and to your individual goals.
  12. Making plans for the future (for example, where you
    are going to live in the next few years, how many children you want, what
    kind of house you will buy, etc.) is easier because you've made the
    ultimate commitment and so you work as a unit.
  13. Your ambition and dreams don't stop just because
    you're married. You both get creative on how to achieve your personal and
    mutual goals.
  14. You learn most everything together, both literally
    and metaphorically, and can help enhance each other's education.
  15. You'll both have more energy, whether that's to work
    together, play together, or to chase after your kids together.

The responses vary, but the
consensus is the same: it truly doesn't matter what age you marry at, young or
old, if you've found the person you love and you're ready to completely share
your life with them.
