What: A Mormon columnist defends couples who tie the knot at a young age.
Quote: "Don't let anyone keep you from participating in the most exciting swim of your life just because they jumped before they learned to doggie paddle."
Reaction: Two things. First, I did marry young, but I don't think I would ever either encourage or discourage someone else from doing the same. I think people need to be more careful when they're on the younger end of the eligibility pool, but that has more to do with making sure you've found the right person for you, not making sure that you have all your educational and financial ducks in a row. Second, at my law school, the photo directory misspelled Brigham Young University. Next to all the photos of BYU alumni, including me, the caption reads: "Bringham Young." Ha ha.
