This guy is horrified by his 18-year-old friends walking down the aisle, but is there actually anything morally wrong with this? Does the Bible have anything to say about how old a couple should be before they get married? Check out Frank’s response to his question.Β

    Isn't it according to your religion Mary married Joseph when she was 12?

    What does this guy always say, β€œThey Say”? Does he not have an actual opinion himself? What’s the point taking questions if he’s going to answer with β€œThey Say”?

    marrying young is best.
    however , it doesn't work with a spoiled infantile non-christian people/culture.
    simple truth.

    Haha, the Robertson’s may take exception to this notion. But they are exceptional. So the stats didn’t apply to them.

    This is bad advice Frank. Sure, worldly councelors, and worldly statistics tell us to wait to get married. But our oversexed society and the hormones God gave us create an intolerable situation for many young people today. Like Paul said, "better to marry than to burn". God is with the innocent, and will bless their marriage and their lives together as they walk with Him. Parents, it's your duty to guide your children and vet their prospective mates, including their families!

    I personally don't agree and here is why if you read the word of God daily and you are young like me and I am 18 there is nothing wrong with it especially if you are young;However, you do need to wait 2 years to get to know that person first cause time is way to fast for 1 year and when you do get married and have intercourse with that person you need to make sure its the right one cause you dont wanna unite souls with someone who doesn't love you.

    "If you're homeschooled you can get married at 14" chuckles as a homeschooled 18 year old

    My wife and I were a "fresh 20" when we got married. Our pastor counseled us not to get married. His marriage didn't last and we are married 48 years now! But we were both the youngest in our families so we probably were mature for our age. We always identified better with older people!

    "Sin is the problem of failed marriages, not age." Let us remember how young Mary was when she married Joseph and had Jesus our Lord and Savior.

    Frank Turek is a smarter, less good looking, less mature, slightly more funny version of me. Which I respect, but I need to unsubscribe I think. Waste of time lol

    Together at 18, engaged at 19, married at 20. 30 years old now. 10 years in the game and more in love than ever. But those first seven years were really rough.

    I didn't quite understand what he was trying to say by "it is fine for a homeschooled 14 to get married".

    wife and I got married at 21 and 22 respectively. 6 years later and a 2 year old and things are not going well. I come from a very traumatic home. Im learning I am very controlling, and she doesn't see any hope of ever being happy with me, regardless of if I manage to change. she says she's endured too much pain and emotional damage.

    depends on personal maturity – it's written a man shall leave his father and mother, not a boy. some are very mature at 18, others are not at 30. both guys and girls.

    If you're not sexually mature you're too young to get married. If you're not mature enough to get married when you're sexually mature or soon after becoming sexually mature, there's something wrong with your education.

    I was 20 and my wife 21 when we got married. We celebrated our 21 year anniversary a week ago. I love her more then ever! If both serve God, why not?

    I think a person should get married when they are financially and emotionally stable enough to do so but life is imperfect. We are not always going to make wise decisions In the heat of the moment.

    We were 21/19. Wanted to be 20/18, but we were long distance. Comin on 9 very happy years. Her parents were 19/17. Comin on 40 years. Grandparents were 17/16. 75 years. My parents 22/18. About 35 years.

    This was a very American answer. Frank seems to only see the world through the lens of his country. Puberty is nature's sign that the body is ready for marriage. In different places of the world, mental maturity comes at different times. American minds mature around 40 years old, if ever. But in some superior cultures, past and present, maturity grows to marriage-ready as soon as early-teens.

    Again a weak answer not based on the Bible, but on what the society today demands and what Turek thinks is good.
    Of course he has a point and being that young, most people haven’t matured enough to understand who they are and what they want to do in life.
    But the Bible does say something about this.
    Β«But if any man thinks that he is not acting properly and honorably toward his virgin daughter, [by not permitting her to marry], if she is past her youth, and it must be so, let him do as he wishes, he does not sin; let her marry.Β»
    ‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭7:36‬ ‭AMP‬‬

    It says β€œpast her youth”. And actually looking up what that means, the amplified has a note, saying β€œreached her childbearing years”.
    Which probably means that people got married earlier than 18 in biblical times, with the father’s consent.

    There are no correct answer and every case has to be considered individually. In my opinion it’s important to be matured (mentally), and people mature differently. Some at 18, some at 25.
