Age is just a number... except when it comes to marriage.I know, I'm absolutely shocked too. Because she couldn't stay married, NO ONE ELSE SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO GET MARRIED WHEN SHE DID!
Let's look at my stats:
Current age - 29
Divorced for - 8 months
Separated for - 1 year, 9 months
Age when I met my ex - 19
Age when I married - 24
Which brings me to my point: couples should not be allowed to get married before age 25.
Let's hope she doesn't get fat eating chocolate ice cream while she cries lonely tears or her next column will be called "Why I Believe Eating Chocolate Ice Cream Shouldn't Be Allowed After 29". Soon to be followed by "Why I Believe Making Cow Noises At Fat Women Shouldn't Be Allowed Because It Hurts Their Feelings" and "Why I Believe Restaurants Shouldn't Be Allowed To Serve Food That Tempts Me To Eat It."
Let's say that her numbers are correct. 60 percent of couples who marry between 20 and 25 are destined for divorce versus 50 percent of all couples. So, we're to conclude that avoiding 20 percent additional statistical risk is worth all of the social costs that will accrue from pushing the average age of marriage up even higher?
I am increasingly convinced that solipsism is a high-functioning form of insanity. I mean, it's less connected to objective reality than average homeless guy babbling about how the fish killed JFK.
