Getting married is simply not justifying the haram. But marriage is the union of two beings from different backgrounds, different thoughts and different genders to form a common life. Surely this is not something easy. Someone who wants to get married should know some things such as how to prepare mentally, physically and spiritually, how to manage domestic conflict, how to be a great parent, how to maintain reproductive health and so forth.
The Marriage Act explains that a person is allowed to marry at least 16 years of age. But the psychological ideal age for marriage lies at the age of 21 years (women) and age 25 years (men).
Through the seminar held SME PIK-M appealed especially for women so as not to rush to marry in the name of love alone. Married at an early age is too much risk because the body and uterus are not ready yet. Indeed in general women menstruating at the age of 15 years. But not necessarily at that age the uterus is ready to be fertilized. Maturity of the uterus lies at the age of 20-35 years. There are many risks if the woman gives birth under the prescribed age such as premature baby, pelvic formation that is not ideal, low reproductive health, high maternal mortality rate, and infant health decline.
If choosing a friend alone should be careful. Moreover choose a partner and then decide to marry him. So get married when ready to live the life of the household with all its consequences. Do not forget the family planning life with the motto of 2 children is enough to create a happy small family and prosperous. Because of the plan then he is the happiest. Salam GenRe! (ni’ma)
