Marriage is usually crested by a wedding ceremony. Most cultures in the world usually acknowledge heterosexual marriage. However, some communities allow same sex marriages. According to Professor Lukenbill’s lecture, she says, “Today, there has been a notable change in the gender roles especially at young age which later affects marriage” (15 March 2012). This article looks at marriage as an urgent social problem especially the issue of young marriage against older marriage. I have chosen young marriage against older marriage since I feel that the issue of marriage has been a continuing social issue in our society and needs to be addressed. Recent data and research findings have shown that the issue of marriage remains to be the most incumbent in American society for a long time. I feel that the issue of young and older marriage needs to be addressed and proper guidance and counseling be administered to children as well as their parents in order to curb the rising cases of divorce and family issues caused by stress and depression due to lack of proper planning of marriages. The social scientists have noted frequently that the issue of early or young marriage is the main cause of divorce in America. They argue that the young graduates from universities have a $23,000 debt from their universities.
