Isn't that funny? Whenever a couple lives together, sharing property, responsibilities, and even children, but are not married, then there is a good reason why they aren't married. A friend of mine is a divorce lawyer (I know, I know) and she told me once that people get married for trivial reasons, but they never get divorced for trivial reasons. She is so smart.
Arranged marriages also have a higher success rate than marriages "for love". I think it's because the couple in the arranged marriage don't expect their spouses to make them happy, so they aren't as disappointed when their spouses aren't perfect.

Probably right. I imagine part of it is also the outside pressure to make an arranged marriage work. If it's their parents arranging it, it's pretty easy to accept that it's the right thing without overthinking it, too.

There are some advantages to parents selecting careers and spouses for their children, but the more romantic notion is for everyone to find their own path.

Marriage (monogamy) isn't a natural human behavior in the first place.


Marriage doesn't me monogamy, there are plenty of couples who expand their horizons after marriage.

I got married at 27, that was good for me.it varies for each person.

I am 29, My wife and partner is 20. I asked her to be with me after two years of being together. I agree to some that an arranged marrige can last longer as the decision is made by persons with a very mature mind set (the parents/grand parents) this leads to a better outcome than the average 18yo couple who dive in after knowing each other of only 6months. I personally waited to find a partner that I could live with, that I could trust and see myself growing old with. If it doesnt work out then I was wrong, if it does I will have gained a life long companion. My sister married at 22 and is on her second husband at 32, life moves on.

As for divorce rate? if you take religion out of the statistics and process you will find that marrige rates are going up, and divorce rates are following. Our marrige system needs some tweeking, but goverments are afraid to change it as most of the citizenry feels thats like having the government in the bedroom.

to better answer your question: there is not a too young, but there is a too immature. your maturity is guaged against society norms and your peers. If the couple in question are of sound mature minds, knowing fully what they intend to get themselves into. I say let them wed. If one or both can not be said to have enough maturity, then they shouldn't.

Marrying at a young age has a higher chance of divorce so I think late 20s is best in my opinion.

Below 21 regardless of anything imo. After that, if love finds you then it finds you but I think actively looking for marriage/"the one" under age 25 is too soon. Really, I think 30. You should be well out of school and established yourself as a fully functioning adult before trying to combine your life with another or being in a situation where it's expected that you create and raise a child.
