idea of young people marrying "early" is not as arcane as it seems. Obviously, a young person today has to :know more" than the young people at the turn ofthe twentieth century, and even into the first few decades. The concept of "teenager" didn't exist, and none of the high school foolishness existed becasuse high schools were mostly for children whose parents could affort tuition. Most young people left school at thriteen or fourteen, started working. Young men were considered adults at eighteen and nineteen, ready to pick out a young woman of sixteen or seventeen, get married and start a family. Heck, young women of fourteen attended Seminar Levinisky, and were out teaching in the Moshavot at seventeen and eighteen! Look at the pictures, guys. Let's not start with foolish statements that turn us into people who have no understding of the past. Extremeism, of course, but the early marriage is a matter of what people did then, and what exigencies of our age.
