Sound advice

Traditional Marriage has no more ardent a supporter than Sister Nancy Beth, so I was fascinated to read Focus on Family's top reasons for divorce (curiously absent from the list: radical homosexual activists -- hmm, somebody's slipping...). As a public service to my 'tween 12 and 20 readers, I would like to pass along this tawny iridescent pearl of Godly Wisdom:
Getting married too young: Girls who marry between 14 and 17 years of age are more than twice as likely to divorce as those who marry at 18 or 19 years of age. Those who marry at 18 or 19 are 1.5 times as likely to divorce as those who marry in their 20s. The pressures of adolescence and the stresses of early married life do not mix well. Finish the first before taking on the second.
Ladies, I can't stress this enough: Despite the obvious temptation to be the envy of your junior high classmates, hold out until you're at least 18 before you get married. This way, your parents will have to buy you both a graduation gift and a wedding gift. Praise Him!

    What sound advice. It's also a Biblical fact that one gains profound wisdom and insight upon the 18th birthday that make it possible to form successful lifelong unions. Some hormone or another is triggered, and if one smokes fewer than two packs of legally obtained cigarettes a day, the biological nugget of holy wisdom is preserved.

    These facts are also part of creation science, but because of the anti-c.s. lobby have been suppressed.

    I am sorry I forgot to check spelling. It's late and my focus is off. I'm a hairdresser in Twisp Washington. I've been in the business for over 35 years. I am in the process of opening my new salon in town and wanted to share anything I can out there. I also agree with you on the marriage idea. My younger son is not married yet he's 24 and I am glad he hasn't found the one. Growing up and getting your life on a path is what will make others stand up and take notice.
