    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    Most teenagers do not get married nowadays because they need to complete an education which takes time. It's all technology induced.

    Because we raised the age of marriage in order to allow people to become better educated. They were still married at younger ages and therefore also pregnant at younger ages. They also lived fewer years, so they had to start earlier having children. That is no longer necessary. It goes along with the "things change". And with that comes changes in how we deal with issues such as teen pregnancy (whether those teens are married or not, since very few people in this day and age want teenagers in high school getting married, so it is stupid to separate teen pregnancies between those who are married and those who aren't in the US).

    No it's not. That's morality.

    I don't know if the numbers are exactly correct today, but that doesn't bolster your claim at all. Plus, it seems like we're more likely to get accurate statistics if we're more open about sex.

    It's like some people are like, NO sex education for kids, NO condom program for kids. We want to go back to the old days when teenagers were married off at the oldest 17 years old and start making babies immediately, with no thought or consideration whatsoever about how life has changed since then. Some people are SO blinded by their ideologies that it seems as though they can't think clearly. It's not like we can go backwards in time and ignore technology and how it has changed our lives quite drastically since some of these old folks were young.

    Again, morality is subjective. And whether people are getting married at younger ages has nothing to do with morality and everything to do with changes in society. People live longer, get more education, and have figured out that younger people tend to not make the best choices about relationships.
