Miley Cyrus is Engaged at 19 — Which Other Stars Have Married Young?
It seems that the biggest story of the last two days has been Miley Cyrus’s engagement to Liam Hemsworth — not only because we all love a good celebrity engagement, but also because both are so young. Miley, after all, is still underage at just 19 years old.
While celebrity marriages have a reputation for being short-lived in general, that fact in combination with the stars’ youth has led many to speculate on how long the marriage will last. It seems that lots of folks have doubts about ability of young people to build a marriage that stands the test of time.
Not that that’s stopped plenty of celebrity couples to tie the knot at a young age. Let’s take a look at a few celebrities who said ‘I do’ before they were 25.
In my opinion, age is not the most important factor in a marriage’s longevity. There are plenty of other elements to consider, including communication styles, maturity, shared values, willingness to persevere through hard times, and timing. Perhaps I’m biased, though, seeing as my own parents are high school sweethearts who are still going strong.
That being said, I am a little skeptical about Miley and Liam’s union – they’re young stars who haven’t come in to their own yet, and neither seems fully matured. Only time will tell.
What do you think? Will Miley and Liam’s marriage last? Is it a bad idea to get married in your early 20′s? Sound off in the comments!
