This is more so when one party has a strong desire for the other and spare no expense when attempting to win their heart.
With all this in mind, there are many aspects of society that encourage marriage over common law relationships. Ethically and morally speaking, this seems fine, however, most people develop an understanding of life and themselves much later on and many find themselves making decisions early that they regret when they become a little wiser. Here are some angles from which one can approach the issue of the effects of early marriage: Societal pressure.
Young couples who are married and still studying will find it difficult to focus on their studies. They will not be able to cope with their studies and their marriage because they will not have enough time to balance between them.
University needs someone who is really capable of devoting a lot of their time and energy, which is why it best that people get married after graduating. Marriage in early adulthood is clearly patterned by race. Among men, Blacks were also the least likely to marry prior to Hispanic men were the most likely to marry early: Nearly one quarter were married before age Other demographic and family characteristics also played an important role in the marital timing of young adults.
As our geography hypothesis predicted, early marriage was more common for those who grew up in the South and in rural areas. Young men from the South also had higher rates of early marriage, though rural men were not statistically more or less likely to marry early than their counterparts. Parental socioeconomic status was also an important factor for marrying young in the United States. Rates of early marriage did not differ, however, by family income level.
Parents appear to have transmitted marriage norms intergenerationally. Moreover, parents' marital timing was also a significant predictor of young marriage: For both women and men, those whose parent married before age 21 were more likely than their counterparts to be married themselves prior to age Marriage in early adulthood varied widely by religious affiliation.
These women were more likely to marry early than Black Protestant, mainline Protestant, Catholic, Jewish, and religiously unaffiliated women. Jewish, Black Protestant, and Catholic women, on the other hand, were among the least likely women to marry before age The pattern of men's early marriage rates by their religious tradition during adolescence was similar to that for women, though there were fewer statistical differences among these groups.
Thus far, we have found significant variations in the prevalence of early marriage by demographic and family characteristics. The same cannot be said, however, for variations by personal characteristics. Indeed, the only significant difference in marriage rates by personal characteristics was among those with differing educational aspirations.
Both women and men who wanted very much to attend college reported a lower prevalence of marriage prior to age 23 than their counterparts. He added that in Malaysia, a few steps have been taken by the government in order to reduce the problem. Under Malaysian Law, youngsters who want to get married must be at least 18 years old for male and likewise 16 years old for female and both of them must have permission from the court. Also, for Muslim, Malaysian government will provide them with courses regarding marriage, before and after marriage.
This is to enhance the relationship between those who had married so that divorcement can be somewhat prevented. But from his point of view, some Muslim scholars had agreed that it is permissible to the teenagers to masturbate, only after he or she had tried to control himself or herself but still cannot put their sexual desire on hold.
But still, by doing this, it is far much better than getting married and then put a hole on the family institution, hence leads to social deterioration. There are a lot of organizations for married women such as organizations for mothers, organization for wives and many others. So, based on his explanations, the statement is not quite true. First, a girl is more susceptible to diseases and complications when sex intercourse takes place between the spouses occur at an early age.
Early pregnancies followed by childbearing can also bring harm to the girl by increasing the risks of dying and complications during delivery. The loss of mobility and social life due to the early marriage will result in lack of self esteem and great emotional stress.
In addition, limited education is obvious among those who marry early. The findings, which is the interview and survey that had been conducted has a contradict results with my hypothesis. Most of the respondents as well as the person that I had interviewed disagree with early marriage.
This is maybe because of the background of my respondents. Majority of them were Chinese so they may have different way in viewing this matter.
Parenting skills may have a great impact to the children in seeing the world. There are also some possibilities that the place where my respondents grew up affect the result. The value from urban area might be different with the value from rural area. Nonetheless, the results of my findings are in the same line with results from other research which is scholarly.
Therefore, the practice of early marriage is proven to hinder personal development and should be reduced among young adolescents especially in developing countries with high incidence of young marriage. Early Marriage and Childbearing: Risks and Consequences. Accessed 25th January Judith K.

This is not the disadvantaged American typically addressed in sociological and demographic research, but these persons are nevertheless a significant minority of the United States population. However, Geronimus and Korenman , using sister fixed effects, and Hotz, McElroy, and Sanders and Hotz, McElroy, and Sanders and Hotz, Mullin, and Sanders , using random miscarriages as an instrument, found little evidence of a negative effect. Furthermore, as reported by Mathur in her report, they emphasized that gender roles is one of the main causes of the occurrence of early matrimony. Many of the respondents believed that marriage is a big responsibility and youngsters just do not have the capability to bear it yet. Moreover, parents' marital timing was also a significant predictor of young marriage: For both women and men, those whose parent married before age 21 were more likely than their counterparts to be married themselves prior to age
Early marriage is beneficial because desire and energy from young couples produce healthy offspring. In modern years families have comprehended that immature marriages are not fine for children. Researchers and policymakers around the turn of the twentieth century recognized that teens may be especially ill-prepared to assume the familial responsibilities and financial pressures associated with marriage. To my knowledge, no previous research has studied the causal effect of early marriage. Mathur, S, et al A study conducted shows that in major culture of the developing countries, the transition age of a girl from children to adulthood are not meant for them to find their own personality.

Early marriage comes with its own set of difficulties, however, and if understanding and supporting all marriages — be they early, normative, or late — is a goal of scholarship and policy, this population should garner more attention from both researchers and policymakers. However, even if the individual is optimizing, society might still be concerned about the effects of poverty on her children and the costs associated with transfer programs. Because the surveys ask retrospective questions about age at first marriage and women are different ages when the survey is administered, a large data set with time-varying information can be created from the cross sections. One day, they might regret their decision to get married early.
