Results of Teenage Marriage
How Stressed are Teens Really?
The average American teen is now the most stressed-out and frustrated age group according to a 2013 stress survey-
only 16% of teens think that their stress level has decreased in the last year
42% say they don't know if they are or that they don't know if they do enough to control their stress
Pressure to Marry
Teenage pregnancy rates have dropped since their peak in the 1990s, and in 2013, there were 26.6 births for every 1000 girls in the age range of between 15-19. However, this only leaves pregnant teenagers feeling more isolated, ashamed and alone. So they feel forced to choose marriage which mostly ends in divorce.
Between being a teen and a future mother, pregnant teenagers certainly have an excuse to stress out and worry.
The process of choosing a college is stressful enough, but balancing education and motherhood is a dangerous and extremely stressful combination. Now, adding the stress of a Wedding to the equation, girls feel overwhelmed and pushed past their limit.
Most states allow teenagers between the ages of thirteen and eighteen to be married with consent from both parents with additional court approval in some states.
If marriage is a solution to teenagers having sex, it’s quite short-term. Figures released from the National Center for Health Statistics found nearly half of marriages where the bride is eighteen or younger end in separation or divorce within ten years.(Teen Marriage on the Rise)
Studies show that today teenage marriages are two to three times more likely to end in divorce than are marriages between people 25 years of age and older.
The most comprehensive study on marriage and age that sociologists cite was published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2001, from 1995 data, and it found that 48 percent of those who marry before 18 are likely to divorce within 10 years, compared with 24 percent of those who marry after age 25.
Divorce is not only an emotionally trying experience, but it can be a financially devastating one, as well. According to the web site Maritalstatus.com, the average cost of a divorce in the United States now runs about $20,000.
Every day more than 37,000 girls get married, and if present trends continue, an estimated 15 million girls will become child brides every year beginning in 2021. When girls marry at a young age, they often leave their homes, stop attending school, and lose contact with family and friends.
Many married adolescents experience domestic and sexual violence.
Of the 16 million adolescent girls who give birth each year, 90% are married.
Early marriage is an egregious violation of human rights with severe consequences for girls' sexual and reproductive health.

Works Cited
Marriage requires a lot out of two people: a financially stabling job, an education, patience, and being able to live together peacefully under the same roof.

Teen Marriage-Teen marrriage is typically defined as the union of two adolescents, joined in marriage from the age range of 13-19 years old.
Only 12 percent of teen girls who get pregnant choose to marry
The odds against a teen marriage working are very strong
The circmstances of most young people in today's world just do not make marriage advisable
The Church's View
The church thinks that all marriage should be sacred and for those mature enough to make big life decisions. Also, the church believes that marriage should not be a result of an unplanned pregnancy, as they think sex should only be shared within marriage.
S-Socially, teenage marriage may separate you from your friends, family, and the people you see everyday
P-Physically, teenage marriage may end in physical, sexual, or emotional abuse, and may harm more than help bring a family together
I-Intellectually, marriage costs a great amount of money, and my leave a teenager with little or nothing to put towards a future education
E-Emotionally, any marriage can be extremely stressful. With the pressure of a child on the way, teenage marriage can be
S-Spiritually, teenage marriage can cut off peoples' relationships with God, and can allow them to almost forget about him completely.
In conclusion, teenage marriage can be a hazard emotionally, physically, and financially. A successful marriage is built on trust, love, and mutual understanding. Getting married as a teen can rush you into all that comes with marriage and make it more about staying together than about love.
