10 Benefits To Getting Married Young

10 Benefits To Getting Married Young

… (Previous page – 10 Benefits To Getting Married Young) live without roommates for the first time with each other, just like you get to see what it’s like to get promotions, or a much nicer place, or a new car together.

8. You share all your craziest memories

Most of the time, the wildest, most out there experiences you have come when you’re really young, full of excitement and energy and raring to meet the world.

And you get to share those with each other.

You don’t have to wait for one of his friends to let slip the time he got so drunk that he passed out in a field – because you were probably there.

And being part of each other’s craziest (and most embarrassing) memories only brings you closer together.

9 . You wind up happier than other people

This one surprised me too. However, a National Marriage Project report from 2013 found that of people who are between 20 and 28 years of age, the most satisfied group are those who are married.

Plus, out of everyone who said they were “very happy” in marriage, the vast majority were those between 24 and 26. Who knew?

10. You have your whole lives ahead of you

Let’s look at it this way:

Worst case scenario, you grow into different people who aren’t compatible with each other anymore, realize it early, and wind up splitting up your marriage. And then you realize – hey, we’re still in our 20’s! We’ve got plenty of time!

On the other side, if things really do work out and continue to get better and better, you’ve got your whole lives ahead of you. You don’t have to regret the years you didn’t spend with each other – because you spent them all together. And you have a lifetime of happiness in front of you.

    If you are a guy the best age to get married is…never. It’s great for women and kids but there is nothing in it for us guys.

  • Gift June 19, 2018, 7:02 am

    all this might be a good reason to marry young but the disadvantage is too much, married is from 25 and above.

  • Nwokoji Right-time January 4, 2017, 8:57 am

    The list is truly encouraging… A lot of young people are very scared of getting married early… But it is quite true it could turn out well if You marry the right person… The time should be considered but the person you are getting married to is a more important factor to be considered.

    Wow ,its really undestandable. Thats what is going on these days. Marry whenever you found the right one. Opportunity come’s once. And everybody has different fate and destiny. Some might be early and some late. Don’t ever imitate one’s life style and standard. We all have different destiny…….muah

  • Emily Schultz August 11, 2015, 9:35 am

    Great list. The benefits of being married in general are good. They are amplified when you do it at a younger age!

    • Maurice Adindu Chima June 22, 2018, 6:34 pm

      So True Emily

  • Rachel Jackson August 11, 2015, 9:25 am

    Great list, I am going to share this with my friend who is not sure if she is ready to be married at the age of 20.

  • Joanna Banks August 10, 2015, 7:41 pm

    Are these really benefits? I think they are more like an end result of getting married at a younger age and I do not look at that the same way.

  • Kayla Huff August 10, 2015, 7:32 pm

    Figuring out the tough stuff early is a great reason getting married young is a benefit. You might seem to be growing up faster than you want due to the experience, but it is for the better of both of you!

  • Shanell Yazzie   August 7, 2015, 9:32 pm

    These are great reasons, but I still there is more to it. It is not just about being young, but it should be more about what you both want and if you are ready.

  • Tawana Barga   August 6, 2015, 9:41 pm

    Getting married at a young age can go both ways. Of course, if you both truly love each other, it should be simple. If you are getting married because you are pregnant, that might not be the best scenario.

  • Shante   August 6, 2015, 9:31 pm

    My husband and I got married very young and we thought we knew what we were doing, but we couldn’t be further from reality. After a couple rough patches that we recovered from, it was only a matter of time before we went our separate ways. The best thing is that we were able to chalk it up as a “mistake” and move on from there.

  • Bell Millikin   August 5, 2015, 12:05 pm

    I like the fact that there is less baggage. Both of your have barely dated at this point and there is going to be less stress that usually comes with a combined family.

  • Shemeka Budge   August 1, 2015, 12:36 pm

    Young couples are getting a ton of benefits. This list is nice to read!

    • Azzie   August 5, 2015, 12:16 pm

      Yes it is. I agree. I would be a good one to share with young couples that are thinking about getting more serious.

  • Dorthea Ramsay   August 1, 2015, 12:25 pm

    Great list! I like the fact that we would truly grow old together for many, many years.

    • Bong Moriarty   August 3, 2015, 10:20 am

      I am pretty young and it scares me to get married, but this list is so nice to read and really puts a dream like future in my mind. Is that even possible?

      • Darby   August 3, 2015, 1:13 pm

        Well, yes it is possible. There is always a dream that every holds for their future. It just comes down to being able to stay on that same path. With so many variables, it is not that easy.

  • Sophie Lyman July 31, 2015, 12:21 pm

    I was thinking about this the other day. I am quite young and was not sure if there was any real good reason to be married now. This is a good list and one that I will consider.

  • Luz Boyd July 30, 2015, 1:37 pm

    I wouldn’t say that the wedding would be cheaper when you are younger. Many times the first wedding is when the families go all out and that can cost a pretty penny.

  • Alexandra Gibson July 30, 2015, 1:26 pm

    I like the possibility that we could make it to our 50th year anniversary and things like that for sure. That is usually only possible if you marry at a young age.

    • Diana Alsop August 7, 2015, 9:43 pm

      I like hearing about older couples that have been together many years. It is certain they had to be married at a young age, which is what you are talking about here.

  • Tracey Ellison July 29, 2015, 2:23 pm

    Most of the benefits are very good ones. There is also something to be said about waiting and learning. If you marry when you are 30, there is nothing wrong with that.

  • Samantha Lambert July 29, 2015, 2:11 pm

    As many of the others have said here, this is a list of great benefits.

    • Natosha Calvo   July 31, 2015, 12:34 pm

      Yes it is, but I am not sure they are ALL benefits, are they?

      • Shante   August 7, 2015, 8:21 am

        I guess it depends on how you look at it. Each benefit listed here is going to be taken a different way by each couple. Still, it is a good list!

  • Vanessa Pullman July 28, 2015, 11:15 am

    I always thought it was better to be married young as well. But then again, I made the mistake and as I look back, I wish I would have at least waited to make the call on my first marriage.

  • Amanda Piper July 25, 2015, 6:15 pm

    There are many benefits to getting married at a young age. The main thing is that you have talked about important things and agree on many of them. Today’s youth get married so quickly and never really benefit from being in a real relationship.

  • Joanne North July 25, 2015, 6:04 pm

    Having a cheap wedding is certainly a plus. Being married young allows you to look forward to anniversaries like 50, 60 and 70 years!

    • Nicola Berry July 28, 2015, 11:27 am

      I always like hearing about the 70 year anniversary that some couples get to celebrate. It is a true testament of love!

    • Tawana Barga   August 7, 2015, 8:32 am

      I also hope that I can live to accomplish this some day!

  • Madeleine Taylor July 25, 2015, 5:53 pm

    Being able to figure out all of the tough things together instead of learning them the hard way through marriage and divorce is a much better path to go down.

  • Virginia Hart July 25, 2015, 5:40 pm

    These all make very good sense!
