Interestingly enough, while Mr. Deeter makes a few good points on why he believes Christians should marry young he does eventually move on to Von Ohlman‘s reason for marrying young: keeping you from falling in/on someone you’re not married to’s vagina/penis. It really does always boil down to sex with the patriarchy crowd.
Christian parents, grandparents, and teachers should encourage younger Christians to consider marrying early. Marriage is an incredible gift given by God to our sanctification and our enjoyment. Yes, early marriage is not necessarily an easy road. You may be poor, have to work twice as hard to make it through college, and be thought of as weird by a anti-marriage culture. However, if two Christians love each other, and most importantly love the Lord Jesus Christ, early marriage should not be a thing that is tabooed, but encouraged and celebrated.
