Due to the increase in the marriages of young people, there is a controversial debate whether young people should getting married at early age. While some people believe this has a number of negative effects on our lives, the others disagree.(This is my suggested introduction.) 

There are a lot of advantages for marriage at early age, which is considered between 19 years old and 22 years old. The greatest advantage of getting married at a young age is [font#0000FF]that people can have more time to have children, especially those who want a big family. That is because young people at a very early age are more likely tobe able to produce more offspring than old people . Another benefit is that young people can get as much emotional support as they need from their partners and their woes and difficulties can also be shared between them. In fact, some people believe that they are at more ease to reveal their concern to their spouses than to other people. Occasionally, when the difficulties arise, advice and suggestions can be sought from the partners as well as the encouraging words. Moreover, people are able to learn to shoulder responsibilities at an early age. For instance, they have to stop relying on their parents and learn to depend on themselves and bear the responsibility of managing their own affairs.

On the other hand, getting married at young age has many disadvantages too, particularly those who are from 10 years old to 18 years old. The main disadvantage is thatthey miss out  the fun of teenage life. It will deprive them of their youth. Thus, they cannot live their life as a normal child as the others who are at the same age. In addition, bringing up children may be difficult for  young parents, because their knowledge of child care and attention to children may not be enough. Therefore, they will not be able to provide the appropriate care for their child. Another demerit side is that early pregnancy and childbirth can affect the mother's health. Young mothers are generally exposed to severe health problems such as miscarriage and the difficulty of delivering the baby. In addition, early pregnancy and childbirth can have a negative impact on mother's health at young age.(This sentence is repeated.

In conclusion, there are both positive and negative impacts on young couples. In my opinion, I believe that the most suitable married gap age is between 19 to 22 years old because at that stage people can obtain more advantages than the drawbacks from their marriage.

You should avoid using repeating words and try to use synonyms instead. Also, you have to give your opinion in the conclusion. I cannot provide the band score for you because I am not IELTS examiner. Good luck for your IELTS! Age is just a number... except when it comes to marriage.

Let's look at my stats:
Current age - 29
Divorced for - 8 months
Separated for - 1 year, 9 months
Age when I met my ex - 19
Age when I married - 24
Which brings me to my point: couples should not be allowed to get married before age 25. While I know that this statement is going to make me very unpopular with readers, I do believe that it would be for the best -- better both for the institution of marriage and the individuals getting married -- if we could change the law to prevent couples from getting married before the age of 25. In my experience, marriage before 25 was not the smartest idea. I met my ex at the tender young age of 19 (just a few months after my birthday). I was enjoying the freedom of drinking and partying legally for the first time (I live in Canada where the drinking age is 19). I had yet to figure out who I was or what I wanted in my life. I was naïve and impressionable, and when I met my much older ex, I was perfectly happy to let him take control of my life, creating a relationship dynamic that continued for the nine years we were together. We decided to get married when I was 24. It seemed like the right thing to do at the time because...
