Answering Preparing To Be A Help Meet – Is 17 Too Young?

Answering Preparing To Be A Help Meet – Is 17 Too Young? November 23, 2016

AnsweringAnother installment of giving better answers to the questions asked at Debi Pearl’s site message board for the book ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’. Many young ladies ask questions on all sorts of different subjects brought up by the book. There was just one big problem, many of the answers stray into either the outright bad and emotionally unhealthy to dangerous. Yes, typical Debi Pearl borderline abusive. Here’s what we’re going to be doing here at NLQ. Every week, once or twice a week, I’ll be posting up one of the questions from the message board and ask you, our readers, to answer that poor soul’s question in a way that is logical,  rational and the best possible solution, in other words 180 degree turn from Debi and friends answers. As always all spelling and grammar in the posting is unchanged from the original author.

Is 17 too young?

Hi, I’m Judy. I’m 17 years old and I’ve already gotten my BA in communications by CLEPing and online classes. I have been courting this guy (22 years old) for 9 months, I’ve prayed a lot and really feel this is God’s will for me. Both of my parents approve. We have been talking about the future and we think we are ready to get married. First though, we are seeking counsel. :) I would like to ask your opinion on the subject.

I have so many questions I’d like to ask this young lady before I answer. Most of the advice she was given was that 17 is not too young to get married and start having babies. No one seems to have a problem with this over at the board. What might you say?
