Young Love

By  |  0 Comments

Getting married young seems to be the topic of discussion that usually ends in a split decision. When they were young, it was the norm for the now-older generation to get married in their early 20’s, but now, they advise young couples to wait. Our view is simple–love doesn’t  have an age. If you have found “the one” then go for it!

Thanks to our friends at POPSUGAR who have listed the “perks” of marrying young:

“15 Perks of Getting Married in Your Early 20s”

  1. While you’re young you can enjoy the complete life adventure with your closest friend.
  2. You and your spouse are not set in your ways quite yet. You can mold and shape each other as time goes on.
  3. You learn to compromise as you approach some of life’s biggest decisions hand in hand.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. If you’re looking to start a family, reproductively your body is better equipped to have babies at a younger age.
  7. You’re used to making someone else your first priority.
  8. You celebrate many events and milestones together that people who marry later in life may not get the opportunity to.
  9. You grow up together.
  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. You learn most everything together, both literally and metaphorically, and can help enhance each other’s education.
  12. You’ll both have more energy, whether that’s to work together, play together, or to chase after your kids together.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. Marriage at a young age makes you both more accountable, to each other and to your individual goals.

Ahh… young love!
