I dont know about that, I remember talking to alot of older people and alot of the men had married much younger girls, usually the girls were around 15-17, and the guys would be around 16-21, and nearly all of them had great marriages and were still together after 50 years.
My grand parents were like this, My grandfather was 19 when he married my grandmother, who was, I believe 14, and they had the best marriage anyone could want, they died years ago, but were married for over 60 years!!! Strangely though, in todays world, my grandfather would be viewed as a criminal!! Truly strange times we live in.
This was a different generation though, but still, if you look back thru history, it was generally common to girl be married by the age of 18 (up until very recent times), and this went on for 1000s of years, its only today that many people look down upon this…it does make one wonder why this is, especially since thru out history, its been commonplace?
Seems to me, like some group or groups want to influence how the public feels about various topics.??
