And if that sounds judgmental and presumptuous, you're right. I was judgmental and presumptuous about college girls wearing engagement rings, or people making life-long commitments before their 25th birthdays. I think my exact opinion was "Pssssshh" with a somewhat disgusted look, probably rolling my eyes.

And that's a majority opinion in his country, in this decade. While it used to be normal and expected for young women to settle down and get married before the ink dried on their high school diplomas (and in some subcultures, that's still the case), mainstream society has taken a major shift.

Young wives are widely assumed to be old-fashioned, anti-feminist, super-religious, ignorantly inexperienced, destined for divorce — usually all of the above. This new societal stereotype is everywhere from whispery gossip to TV plots. A "smart and educated young lady" knows better.

Yet as life happened, I willingly signed a marriage certificate in 2008, with an 8-month-pregnant belly between us. I was 22 years old.

Six years later, I've had more than just my perspective shifted. I've grown and matured in so many ways, mostly because of things in and around my marriage.

The Shortest Flight in America Is Only 16 Minutes Long

  The Shortest Flight in America Is Only 16 Minutes Long There’s actually a flight so short that you end up spending more time on the taxiway (taking off, landing, and driving on the runway) than you do in the air.&nbsp;The total route is 62 miles long and in total takes about 45 minutes (that includes the time spent on the ground in the plane as well). If you were to drive from San Francisco to Santa Rosa it would take you about an hour and ten minutes with no traffic, so flying definitely has its perks.

Yes, marriage is challenging and getting married at a young age sets us up for unique obstacles, but there are also little-known perks to entering marriage and adulthood roughly at the same time. 10 . We’ve got nothin’ but time.

Young marriage , just like young motherhood, has a unique set of challenges as well as advantages. However most of the conversation concerning young marriage is negative, and the few who do advocate for young marriage aren’t really laying out any romantic reasons.

It's not all bad decisions and dead ends. Here are a few perks of tying the knot at such a young age.

1. We grew up together.

My husband is 30 years old, but I remember him at 18. I remember him living with roommates and delivering pizzas, fresh out of high school.

We've been together through college classes, internships, big moves, small moves, graying hair, changing bodies. We've watched each other launch careers and tackle goals that we once dreamed up on thrift-store furniture, in what feels like former lives.

We grew up together, but also because of each other. I'm proud of the man he's grown into, and I know he feels the same pride and respect toward me. We've come a long way, and it's nice to have someone witness the progress.

2. There's less baggage.

We both have separate pasts. We didn't "save ourselves" for marriage or have a high school sweetheart storyline. But in a way, we did. He's my first and only adult relationship, so all of that grown-up intimacy — the shared apartments and pets and memorable traveling adventures — is something I've only shared with him.

Yes, marriage is challenging and getting married at a young age sets us up for unique obstacles, but there are also little-known perks to entering marriage and adulthood roughly at the same time. It's not all bad decisions and dead ends.

I didn't spend a bulk of my life with someone else; how could I? I was off the market by 20 years old. All of our baggage is checked together.

3. It's relatively easy to combine lives.

In a lot of ways, it was pretty easy to join our lives together. We didn't have deeply established adult lives, habits, and patterns to change. Instead, we developed a system and rhythm as we went.

I started my career with a new last name. He didn't have a set-in-his-ways lifestyle to uproot. No prenups, no complications. There's something to be said for building a life on a single foundation, rather than figuring out how to merge two separate structures.

4. We learned the hard lessons sooner rather than later.

Getting hitched at the beginning of adulthood helped me chop away the delusions of Happily Ever After or a rom-com plotline long before resentment or bitterness settled in my heart. Marriage also provides real-world lessons on things like sacrifice, commitment, companionship, compromise, and unconditional love.

It's hard to change and grow with another person, no matter how old we are, but the effort and struggle teaches us a lot. It can make us better versions of ourselves, giving us opportunities to understand faith, endurance, forgiveness, and patience. It tests our limits, breaks us down, and helps us develop more mature perspectives than the typical dating pool allows. Young marriage isn't easy, but the important things rarely are.

If You’re Not Flying These Seven Major Airlines, You’re Missing These Awesome Perks

  If You’re Not Flying These Seven Major Airlines, You’re Missing These Awesome Perks The amenities of early commercial flying are peanuts in comparison to modern travel.

Lifehacker compiled a list of the little things that you can expect from some of the big names in the travel business, from blindfolds to bellinis, all the way from A (Alaska) to V (Virgin).

So what is it about getting married young that has women saying "I do" before they even graduate college? 10 Ways to Get Through the Holidays as a Single Woman Without a Meltdown. by Emily Cappiello 20 hours ago.

Early marriage has become taboo for millennials, but there are some serious perks to getting married in your early 20s. If you’re not done sowing your wild oats, no pressure, but there are some serious perks to marrying young .

5. We didn't waste money (because we didn't have any).

Our "wedding" cost less than $100. And that was totally acceptable and understood.

6. We had very low expectations.

I didn't wait a decade for "The One," or for a magical time when my stars aligned. If I spent years planning and dreaming up the perfect wedding and marriage and husband and life, I would have been severely disappointed. Instead, I went along with life, choosing to be — and stay — in love.

7. We've shared every milestone and achievement.

We've gone from mouse-infested apartments and empty bank accounts to a comfortable adult life and everything in between. Everything we've accomplished — separately or together — has been met with a familiar high-five.

8. Crazy, wild memories? We've got 'em.

The fact that my husband has first-person memories of me at 19 years old and all of the ridiculous, passion-fueled memories that come with a young romance is something I'll be quite grateful for as I hit middle age.

9. We're happier, apparently.

According to the National Marriage Project's 2013 report, "Knot Yet," the most satisfied 20-somethings (between 20 and 28 years old) are married, as opposed to being single or cohabitating. In fact, those who reported their marriage as "very happy" were largely between 24 and 26 years old.

Another study showed that those married between 22 and 25 years old have the greatest likelihood of having an intact marriage. And more research shows clear benefits to getting married in our 20s.

10. We've got nothin' but time.

Even if my marriage implodes and we change and grow in opposite directions, we'll still have plenty of time in our lives to move on to new experiences. We'll have learned important lessons from our marriage, matured in ways we needed to, and we'll take that growth with us.

On the flip side, my young marriage can give me that much more time with the one person who's stuck by my side through every stage and evolution — and loved me through them all. The one person who has been there for every milestone and moment, and who knows every past version of myself. At the end of it all, time is what matters.
