Does our culture hate marriage? There is a couple at my church that is now engaged. They are both in their early 20's (22 and 23 I believe). After they announced their plans I overheard someone at church telling them to wait a few more years to get married because they still had school and other things to tend to. I remember hearing the same things when my wife and I were engaged. I was 23 and she was 20 when we got married. My wifes uncle said he would give me $2000 as a wedding gift if I could wait till his niece finished college. I told him I would rather have his niece. She was worth more than 2 grand to me. After comtemplating these attitudes I have to ask.... Is this a scriptural attitude? I understand that in the freedom of Christ a person can be married whenever they want...we can't be legalistic and say, "at such and such an age you must be married." But is this attitude that school, or debt, or jobs come first marriage second a biblical attitude? I open this up for your thoughts.
