    My b-i-l did the same thing. He passed about 3 months after his daughters wedding.

    I just can't imagine not being able to see my little girl go through that next stage of her life with her own husband and children. I got a little misty eyed. You guys may have seen this already ... my wife showed it to me and I really like it.

    I'm the bad guy, I guess.

    IP It's just business.

    In that part of the country, that isn't a reason. Folks I went to high school were getting married any age from 18-24.

    I freely admit I find the thing kind of strange and self indulgent. I don't have a daughter though.

    I understand my shelf-life is about to expire, but I truly pity the people at home who get married at that age.

    Marriages that young aren't as common anymore, even "in this part of the country".

    I can fully understand. I would do it for mine at their age, but I get it for this young lady's age.

    Hell, it seems like only a few years ago that girls around here were almost always married by age 18-19. Usually one of the first things that happened after graduation from high school. Back in the first half of the 1900's it was not uncommon for a girl to be married around 15-16.

    We have plenty living the married life without the vows in order to continue to receive full government assistance.

    Lots of that going on here too.

    You can sigh away. I live here, I know what happens. It might be different where you're from.

    Your tax dollars at work, yet again.

    Here's the essentials of the process. They party down, get pregnant and get a check and all kinds of other various government handouts, including insurance.

    Then the government assistance goes to pay for alcohol, drugs, cigarettes and a car.

    While the baby usually ends up being raised by the grandparents, it the baby is that fortunate.

    Like the Bible lets us know, kids need two parents.
