Quoting Back to Noob Status:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Raptor Jesus:</b>" This, 100%. Saying that will probably get ... [snip!] ... by twenty-five years old...like 25 is old, lol. I also think it is weird seeing people have three kids in their teens. "
Earlier on TV there was a story about a local Marine whose baby was the first 2013 baby in a local hospital and this couple couldn't have been older than 18. I'm happy for them and all that jazz but every time I see it I can't help but feel kind of sorry at the same time. I get that a lot of these people say they're happy and that's great--I genuinely
hope that's the case and I also wish them the best--but part of me believes a lot of them are going to end up realizing that maybe it wasn't such a good idea to make such life-altering decisions at such a young age.
People are so impressionable in their teens. They're impulsive. They're even irrational (I know I was). Making huge decisions at that point often doesn't work out in the long run. (For example, I wish I hadn't gotten four tattoos and all kinds of piercings during my teens... That smurf is ugly as sin and it hurts like hell to have it removed, not to mention it's expensive. If I could go back in time and slap my 17/18 year old self I totally would. I can't even begin to imagine playing adult by getting married and having children at that age. I couldn't even make good decisions about my body, let alone decisions concerning someone else's life or whether or not I should be legally tied to someone else.)
