To be honest, I was also interested in this issue. But my opinion is that 16 years - it is a very early age to start a family. That man knows how to in 16 years, if he had not seen the world, and the experience is not. As a 16 year old girl can become a mother, if she is still a child at heart? In 16 years, you need to still go out with friends, have fun, to travel, to receive higher education, rather than stay at home, take care of children, laundry and cleaning. If a man marries a 20 - nothing terrible will happen, but the time lost childhood gone forever. So most childhood and not in a hurry to become adults, is that you do have time to always.

Yeah i do, but i wont subscribe to them getting married @ 16, until they are old enough to woman-up to their duties as a wife, and YES!, that includes wiping clean so their husbands can appreciate them better.
