Is there anybody else who wishes that teenagers could get married and have a baby?

That's just ridiculous. You have your entire life to have children and responsibilities; enjoy your freedom while you have it. All too soon you will be saddled with a mortgage or rent, utility bills, car repairs,insurance, etc., etc., etc... Adulthood lasts the rest of your life. Don't rush it along.

Teenagers need to enjoy their teen years before jumping into adulthood. Not trying to burst your bubble, but I feel many teens are in such a rush to grow up that they miss out on some morale carefree years.

Heck no! Teens don't have the mental capacity to be married or to be parents, even 18 and 19 is still too young, enjoy your freedom, you don't wanna waste it away baby sitting when you should be out having fun. Besides, what job can you do to support a baby if you're a minor? Do you make enough money to rent an apartment? Or do you expect mommy and daddy to let you live with them? Be patient, be smart, the younger you are when you get married the better chance you have of getting divorced, and being a single mom is no picnic.

What????..NO NO NO!!!!!
What?? why the rush, is this a competition of having babies or what?
They have a long life ahead of them!!!
They have to focus on their studies!
Now that the world is in crisis, jobs is very hard to come by, and if teenagers, have to drop out of school just to work for their baby, what would become of the adults?, there would be no jobs for them that are MORE important...
So no!!!!

At least she's 22. I'm 14, and I could never ever be pregnant, I have enough stress of my own, not to mention that I would never ever sleep with someone until wayyyyyy later. The fact that there are stories of girls who get pregnant at 14, makes me really wonder what is going on in their minds.

It's amazing that what should be seen as a beautiful act between two consenting adults has been "dumbed down" to a biological imperative and recreation.

I agree. People should only sleep together if they are in love.

Teens who think its glamorous to be married and have babies should help single teen moms with theirs. Take it all on for a week and see how awesome it all is.

You really need to listen and respect 90% of these answers. The world is a wonderful and glorious place, and it's so cool to find the right guy/girl and travel together or live together and have FUN; to attend a higher learning institution and develop pride in your accomplishments which lasts a lifetime; join the military and see awesome places while being paid and well-taken care of...... no, a baby will wrap itself up around your heart and tie you down; you will always worry about it's welfare which will keep you tied to it, and they're a bitch of a responsibility mentally, spiritually, and legally. Best to wait well into your 20's.

People change when they are stressed out. If you think the person you love is great, imagine yourselves broke, irritable with no sleep, maybe no job, and maybe no place to live. Once you have a kid, you can't send them back. If you really blow it, you could scar them for life. Plus you may look back on that person and say "what was I thinking!" As a teenager you are just discovering yourself. I wanted so bad to be older. I've changed so much as I got older. I've gone to college, met people and traveled many cool and exotic places. One day you will get married. You might not be ready even then. Life has a lot to be lived! Don't limit yourself!

Hummm so would these teens finish high school or spend the rest of their adult lives at dead end jobs, getting government assistance and having more babies?
Get serious; plan your life.

No. Despite the fact that most teenage girls have ha their period, and it is possible for them to get pregnant, it does not mean they are fully mature. In the past, when women got married and had kids right after they started menstruating, is the reason why they died early, or during birth. It is very dangerous for a young girl to be pregnant, an give birth. Also because teens' brains are not fully mature until about 18, they wouldn't be able to fully process and understand taxes, full time job, and raising kids, it would cause extreme stress, or depression, which could lead to other mental problems. This is why it is advised not to drop out of school, or get pregnant. It will screw with your brain, and body.

WHAT have you been smoking?! Nothing, I hope! HELL NO! Boys "should be" keeping it in there pants unless they're peeing! Girls "should be" making sure boys don't get even close with that "naughty thing"! Children have absolutely no business having children!! Get a great education! Stay out of trouble! Avoid drugs (including alcohol), tobacco, and people who might lead you to them! Get a job! Learn how to manage money!!! Love your family!!! Practice your faith!!! Volunteer! And never tell ME you are bored.. Get off your @$$ and help someone. P.S. and sell about 90% of your goofy video games and donate the million dollars to your favorite charity! And when you take a shower..USE SOAP!...

Are you kidding I'm 54 . I work 6 and 7 days a week to buy food and pay for my house and buy the things my wife needs. It would be almost hopeless to work for minimum wage as a drop out and pay for a kid and wife or girlfriend. You need to rethink your thoughts on this. What you don't realize as a teenager your in the best time of your life. When you get out of school it all changes it doesn't get any better.
