No, but there's absolutely nothing "wrong" with it at all.
On the other hand, it's probably not very advantageous to think of marriage in terms of what is "normal". A normal marriage is usually nothing more than a license to treat someone else poorly and take them for granted, and then treat their misery like its a joke when talking about it to other people.
It's ironic that most of the people who will tell you "Oh, you're too young!" and go into hysterics about you even dating are the very people who practice the type of "normal" marriage that I described for you.
Date, get married, fall in love - but be bold about it. There are no mistakes, only experiences. Your only obstacle is fear - and of course, sad, jealous adults.
Nope...but if your religious oppression is forcing you to...RUN!
nothing is normal
Normal no. Wrong, also no. Do what you feel like, not what's normal.
You can't be serious....
silly.. marriage is for much older people... wait, don't ever ever rush into marriage or having kids!
16 is a normal age to be a teen. 16 is a normal age to drive a car. 16 is a normal age for a lot of things but not marriage.
why the rush?
Not in this century
Getting married that young sounds like a bad idea.
If you are so in love you want to commit forever why do you need a piece of paper?
Why? So you can be divorced with 4 kids by the time you're 21?
nothing in my opinion is right or wrong when it comes to love. love doesnt know color,age,income, or looks. just make sure you truly love that person. rule of thumb, if you have doubts dont do it.
way to young how do you know what love is if you have not even started life
thing will change as you get older feeling interests and understanding will change
Only if your father picked the man you're going to marry, cause he is from a rich family.
NO WAY, but i'll explain why. In ten years you'll both be two completly different people than who your are now. You may find (and most do) that you have nothing in common any longer or that you just simply don't like each other anymore. Love isn't enough. that's the truth.
i got married at 16. my husband was 17. i had my 5th and last) baby at 25. we're in our 40th year of a strong, happy marriage. BUT IT WAS IDIOTIC!! DON'T DO IT!! you will lose your childhood and your young adulthood. there will be years of maturity that you won't have because you'll lack growing experiences, and you'll never catch up. the odds of a successful marraige are statistically extremely low. maybe 1 in 100. those are not good odds. and when your love dies before you're 20 due to immaturity and inability to handle adult problems, you'll have 2 or 3 kids, with no way to support them for either of you. your life will suck.
get your education first. allow yourself freedom to play a while longer. i would never advise anyone to do what i did. i have been incredibly lucky, because my husband and i were as foolish as anyone else our age...only married.
good luck with your decision.
no, abnormal. Kids getting married don't even have a clue.
Not a good idea.
Unless you want to be miserable and have the rest of your life ruined by a stupid decision... Then, it's a FANTASTIC idea!
it's not the "normal" age to get married. you can though with your parents permission. i got married at 16. im 17 now. but i had 2 kids with the guy first. give yourself a chance to live life and experience things tho before you decide to do it. trust me. even tho i wouldnt change what i did but i think my situation is a litle different than yours. who knows maybe not.
Biologically, its the best time to have children when you're in you're teens / late teens; but emotional, intellectual and experiential maturity happens much later in life - thirties to forties at least.
This is why its the ideal situation where the youngsters have the babies and enjoy life for a while, and the grandparents raise the children. In tribal, extended family societies, that is more the norm. In Western society where the nuclear (standing alone) family is the usual, its better to marry and have children when you're at least mid twenties.
