Would you be okay with never dating anybody until you were old enough to get married?

  • Dating and marriage has never been an interest or desire of mine.

  • I didn't date till I was 16. That was the "Parental Rule". But I didn't date a lot, once I started. I was a bookworm. My grades always came before my social life. I married at 22 & I've been happily married for 32 years. I have a friend who had her first date, when she was a sophomore in college. Another didn't go on her first date, till the summer following her high school graduation. It's just not that big of a deal. You date because you have something in common with an individual. The older you are, you become wiser about selecting who you date. It is a learning process.

  • i'm 15 and have been single my whole life.... if i had a choice i would chose to date, but i could go single until i'm old enough to marry if i had to

  • Legal definitions aside... We should not marry until we are mature enough to handle it, we do not develop the right kind of emotional maturity without dating people, therefore if we can't date until we're (by our own standard) old enough to marry, we can never date or marry.

I assume you mean legally?

Yes. By old enough to get married, I mean able to support a family with maturity. Sorry for the confusion.

That really depends on the individual doesn't it? For example, an 18 year old can marry but that doesn't mean they are able to support a family. Most of us aren't financially independent or finished college yet but we can legally get married.

If my parents had not divorced they'd be married for almost 32 years now! Isn't that something Sweet Tea?

Haroush ... This day in age, it is a huge victory to get to the 10th anniversary. My cousin & his wife just celebrated their 25th, yesterday. How long have your folks been divorced?

My parents have been married 26 years.
