Is it a thing to....

Get married right after high school? I graduated in 2016 and pretty much the majority of people who didn't enlist or go to college are either married or having babies or both. There are a few who got married and go to college and a good bit who enlisted and got married as well. Like is this a thing? You literally just started being an adult and now you wanna be tied down in something that will probably end with divorce? Like a lot of them work in restaurants or some crappy blue collar job and their probably never gonna leave the area they were born and grew up in. And why do their parents just let this happen with no objections? I mean I'd say probably around 75% of people I graduated with had divorced parents, that might be a tad high but I was definitely in the minority for parents that were still together. But honestly though is this a thing everywhere in the United States? If it then why? Why get married and have kids so early in life? These kids literally like 18,19, or 20.

You are right. Most of these marriages will end up in divorce and God helps all the little ones that happened to be the product of these marriages.
They were raised to do whatever makes them feel good without considering the consequences.

[@553891,BlondeLily] cuz most of them grew up spoiled as hell getting whatever they wanted and made to believe that there are no consequences to their actions.

not sure why they want to get married so fast. would think they would want to keep weightlifting. doing sports. party with friends. go on sight seeing trips with friends and watch movies and other stuff before getting married.

[@251081,Daniel1120] you enjoy sight seeing? been watching the Olympics? lift weights? do sports? you going into military? what branch? you worried? visit national parks? state capitol buildings? museums? watch a lot of movies??

[@487102,trackboy] didn't you comment on my other question and talked to me about the branch I'm joining? And asked me all those questions before?

Good to see I'm not the only one who feels this way I think it might be a growing trend. Majority of the people I graduated with are also already married or have kids I graduated in 2015. I think part of the reason is bad parenting. The problem is that none of them are taking the time to actually think this far ahead they're just doing what feels good in the moment.

[@251081,Daniel1120] It's frustrating, I think some of these cases bother me the most because I expected better from them. Some of these people were my friends we would talk about our struggles and about breaking our parents cycles. But it also reminds me of how fucked up our society is as a whole. I remind myself that people are only a product of their environment and not everyone is strong enough to break it. But man could I sit down and write you a long list of all the girls and guys I had known personally who had ended up pregnant and a good half handful of them turned out into single moms. I tried to reason with one and help her out she's only 19 but married but the relationship is bad and the guy severely mistreats her 🤷 waste of time cause as it turns out she thinks she can change him.

Where I am it is 😂😂

I honestly try not to pay it mind as getting married or having children does not always equal happiness. Some of the people I know that got married to the first person that came along are god damn miserable and have several children with the guy.
