Should the age of majority be at the end of puberty?

Asked by: Fanny
  • It's God's design. If God believe age of Maturity is 18, why would he make the age of Puberty at 11-12 ?

    The puberty age for any boy or girl is at 10-12 years old, and not at 18 or 21 years old. That means that the reproductive functions start at 10-12 for both boys and girls, and there is NOTHING wrong in using those functions at that young age. Even Medical-wise, Children 12 years and older are considered Adults. Read the dose on any Over-The-Counter medication box, you will see the same dose for 12+ and adults. At 12-17 years old, persons are considered medically and naturally " Adult ", and 100% responsible for their actions and decisions.

  • That's God's design, and He is never wrong. Puberty at 11-12 years old means it's a tool God wants us to use at that age.

  • No, the age of majority should not be at the end of puberty.

    The end of puberty is variable and for most people, it happens much too young to be rational to consider them as an adult who is able to make more informed decisions. Puberty typically happens between the ages of 10 and 15 and I don't believe a person of that age should be expected to make choices like marriage, voting, driving, or owning property.

  • Puberty doesn't Signal Maturity

    Currently, the age of majority is 18 or 21, depending on the legal circumstance. While people must be 18 to sign legal contracts, they have to be 21 to drink or inherit property. This is still far too young because too many accidents occur as a result of errors of judgment during this age. The age of majority should be raised, not lowered.
