There’s a famous saying that goes something like this: “Love makes you do crazy things.” To be more precise, I am talking about a problem that many young adults pitfall into, getting hitched too young.

Early marriages may suffer from multiple problems, such as lack of maturity, low income, and potentially an early halt to career and or schooling potential. Due to these three major points, early marriage should be reconsidered and avoided if possible.

Maturity is a by-product of aging. The older we get, the more we learn about ourselves and ultimately what makes us happy. Most young people truly are unaware of what they really want out of a lifetime partner. If a woman is not mature enough for wife or motherhood, she will most definitely find marriage difficult. Coping with any sort of marital disputes or raising children will be a burden and may become depressed too soon in life. By marrying older closer to your thirties, you will have a better grasp on life itself and how to handle certain situations.

Money does not necessarily make you happy, however most people will agree it sure is nice to have. By marrying later in life, you and your significant other should have been putting money aside for bigger and better things to come. Similarly, by having money you develop a sense of where it came from, value it more and are more mature about handling it. Most young people these days have the luxuries of being spoiled by parents who lend vehicles, cook food, clean homes, among other things. Once you’re married, the onus is now on you and your significant other to cover the costs of supporting yourselves. It’s possible, I don’t argue that, but younger married couples will have more difficulties with simple tasks such as these if they are not financially prepared or have good money management skills....
