Marriage between an 18 and 48 years old, really?

I was watching one of my favourite television court shows today and a situation caught my attention. A married couple’s dispute was being discussed. The female is 18 years old and the male is 48 years old. They were having some relationship problems. While listening, I could not help but think, “what did you expect was going to happen?”


Young and pretty, but how ready for marriage is she?
First of all there is a huge agedifference between them; that alone in itself brings about its own problems. That is fine for persons who are mature enough and sufficiently prepared to take those challenges on. However, my problem is not really the age disparity problems. My contention is the fact that the girl is barely an adult. Does she have enough experience to first of all deal with all the rigors of a long term relationship, in addition to the challenges of a huge age difference relationship? That is way too hefty for her.


At that stage of life we tend to want to explore and have fun. We tend to be a littlee silly and make stupid decisions. Mind you, everybody matures at different rates; I mean, you probably were more mature than I was at that age. But the fact of the matter is, she should take some time to develop herself, marriage is not running away. The more self secure one is, the more they have to bring to the table in a relationship.


As for the man, well I do not know what he was thinking. She is 18, he should not be surprised if she behaves like the child that she is.

 I would really like your opinion on this one. What do you think?


  1. My family members every time say that I am wasting my time here at net, except I know I am getting experience all the time by reading such good posts.

  2. Amazing blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I'm planning to start my own website soon but
    I'm a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for
    a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm
    totally confused .. Any suggestions? Many thanks!

    1. Thanks for your comment. Believe me, I myself am a rookie who is in desperate need of some help or direction lol. Which I search online most people say it is best to pay for a website than to choose a free platform like blogger. However, blogger works for me right now so I'm working with it. Let me know if you learn anything.


Hey there, please leave your thoughts and comments here. I would really like to hear what you think.
