Yes. But girls and boys sounds like teen marriage. I don't think teens should marry, for their education and career's sake.
Mature men and women should be free to decide who they wish to marry, when to marry and whether or not to marry. It is one of the most basic rights of humanity.
However, some cultures will not agree with it so readily.
If you come from those cultures, you should be...Careful...
Lest you become a victim of honor...
This is because we only have one life and we need to cherish this life. Wouldnt it be sad when you are on your deathbed and you realized that you married to someone you dont love and you realized that this one and only life you gonna get but u wasted it away. Marriage is a broad topic and this reaquire more critical think. But for now, just realize and acknowledge that this is the only life so enjoy it.
Boys and girls, however mature they may be, but I seriously disagree with the fact that they should be free to marry the person of their choice, since parents aren't those who will think bad about you.
Every decision they take is regarding the concern of their child.
Yes, I agree that it is not them who will spend their life, but rather you, So, its not that you will be totally dependent on their choice. You also have the right to make a choice and decide the person you want to spend your life with.
