Is 15 & 16 to young to get engaged?

"Immature" is not synonymous with "foolish" or something, it just means you haven't yet gotten close to your peak, your potential, your true, matured self. I'm nineteen, and I have changed tremendously from the time I was 15, in a multitude of ways. In fact, even over the last six months, I've felt myself change for the better a ton, which is really remarkable. The older I get, the more previous ages are put into perspective for me. Sure, I may have been mature for my age at 8, or 14, or 17, but I still had so much growing to do--mentally, spiritually, physically, emotionally. In a couple of years, I'm sure I'll stumble upon this and be like, "Oh, sweet nineteen. I thought I had it all figured out!" or something, but that's just how life goes, eh?
Anyway, marriage is an extremely important, mature decision--and coming to truly understand its weight and significants takes a lot of time, reflection, and experience, as well. Marriage, thankfully, is so much more than 20k dropped on a fairy tale perfect day, or a magic fix for your relationship, or more than a sign of loving someone, or more than having a regular sex partner, or having babies, and so forth. I'm sure you realize this all, but it takes a while to "get" it. Unfortunately, many people seem to rush into marriage without ever really getting it--and I don't want you all to be among them. :)0
