Is Getting Married Young For The Christian The Answer For Fornication???


Reader the below post is one I posted on this blog in 2011 and today think it's worth revisiting.  I find the topic of marriage and young people to be a very interesting topic. There are some among the Christian faith that are suggesting that getting married at a young age is the answer to fornication.


Dr. Al Mohler states that young Christians are waiting a long time to marry. Is this a good idea? What keeps young people who are committed to honoring the Lord, from marrying those they fall in love with? He also discusses the shift in culture from marrying your sweet-heart young, to a prolonged, single, long-term dating society.

The Church should be careful to encourage marriage as an example of Christ and His love for His people.  I have always viewed marriage as an institution that was put in place by God and it should and ought to be taken seriously. Getting married just so you can have sex ‘within God’s will’ is not a good reason for getting married.  

Marriage is and should be  base on a lifetime commitment to one person with a whole lot of responsibility coming with it.   Desiring to have sex is not reason enough to get married, and couples should be financially self-supporting before getting married. I understand that  today we are marrying older and older,but  we’re reaching sexual maturity younger and younger. I don't think Paul had today's marriage in mind when he suggested  we remain celibate until marriage. What's your thoughts? How would you describe to young for marriage?

    1. There's nothing in the world creepy about this picture. This is a picture of children taking part in a TOM THUMB wedding.

  2. No one should get married just to have LEGAL SEX nor to get out of your PARENTS HOUSE. Take it from someone that knows. It's the worse thing that you can do. You will be most miserable. I thought that I was in love but I wasn't. He turned out to be abusive mentally,physically and sexually. He was an alcoholic. It took me years of counseling . And I got SAVED and I forgave him before he died. The only good thing that came out that marriage was my three children. I will tell any woman or man to pray,Fast seen GOD and get good counseling before you decide to get married. And marriage isn't for everyone. Don't get jealous cause your friends are getting married. And yes everyone should stay celibate before they marry. I will also tell everyone before you get married to make sure that you have enjoyed life to the fullest. Make sure that you have accomplished the goals in life that you as a single person wanted to accomplish. When 2 people's marry it's to come together as 1 to accomplish together wonderful things together that the 2 of you will have a legacy.

  3. Folks needs to learn that sex isn't everything. Make sure that you love that person. What if she or he have a stroke ? And they can't do anything what are you going to do then ? Marry for true love and true love only . IJS
