Justin and Hailey Bieber’s whirlwind romance and marriage has sparked a lot of commentary over the past several months. I’ve read countless headlines claiming the couple married too quickly, too young, and predicting X amount of reasons why their relationship could be “headed to an end.”
It’s obvious that most people in today’s society can’t wrap their heads around two young and successful people making a decision to commit to one another forever. People assume they’ve got so much more to learn, so much more ahead of them in their careers.
While many are scratching their heads, dumbfounded by the newlyweds, I personally saw this coming – and I applaud them for their decision to tie the knot despite criticism from naysayers. My husband and I met when we were 22 and 23 and got engaged after 10 months of dating, so I sympathize with the Bieber’s decision to marry at a young age. But that actually has nothing to do with why I’m a strong advocate for their relationship.
