People who marry at an early age usually have unhappy marriages. The truth can be said for the above statement. The results are sometimes disastrous and painful for some; others seem to never heal emotionally from their experiences.
In the community about fifty years ago arranged marriages were acceptable, usually the girls were around twelve to thirteen, some were luckier than others and were kept home until they were sixteen to eighteen. Even today a lot of societies still practice this arrangement. However this does not make the situation right. Some of those marriages have lasted even until this day, but so to some has not.
