Again if the parents instill in them about not having sex and kids at a young age it would make them think twice. But yes, parents can not control everything.

Yep, education is key. I will not tell my daughter "DON'T HAVE SEX" or "DON'T GET MARRIED" until this age or that age but I will educate the hell out of her..so she can make an informed decision for herself when it comes to this natural bodily function... O0

my take on this ordeal of getting married young (under the adulthood maturity)....

marrying below, what society calls it "adulthood", just force additional dependencies and liabilities on both the young married couple and the in-laws... much-less the social services system - AFDC. And of course, increase the divorce rate at a later date/time, which results in painful headaches, wasting lots of money, separating children - eventually, forces jail time at some point, on welfare, adoption, joining gangs, blah blah blah....

at least at the age of 18, the couple would have a better judgement and hopefully get some kind of stability in jobs first.

I'm just BS-ing .. carry on folks.
