trarily to determine an age for marr.age
das t would be to Presc*ribe a remedy for a
physical allment. It all depends. What
n will cure one man may kill another.
s- Some persons never grow old rnolugh to
marry. Indeed, I bel,.ve that this is one
of of the explanations for our enormously
increasing divorce statistics-the contract
a- ing parties are the -ort that never may
:; hope to attain that matur.ty of mental and
ii spiritual developmentt which is absol'utely
in essential to the leading of a happy. aortaea
he l:fe. whether in marriage or out of it.
. MATURITY IMPORTANT.
i- Personally, I do not think that age-that
in- physical age-has much to do with the
he question of a happy marriage. Maturity.
o- however, does play a moat important part
ng -maturity of heart, of mind, and of the
r- emotional nature. This maturity, we have
ill already observed. comes to many men and
si- women late in life, to many others never
iis at all A few rare individuals attain it at
e eightee and twenty-most persons not
or until well along in middle life.
One of the happiest marriages I know
re. of is that of a couple who married when
nd the woman was not quite seventeen and
its the man a little over nineteen. They have
all now been married twenty-five years and
ro- are the parents of sai boys and girls, all
ad healthy, bright, and as essentially normal
Sas their parents. To spend an hour or sm
ste in thisl charming family circle, and to see
this couple still in the very prime of their
en lives with grown sons and daughters about
ito them, is a moat agreeable spectacle and a
l It does not. however, in the least eon
i stitute any argument in favor of early
I. marriage. On the contrary, it may be
of construed a a cogent argument against iI
0 for the perfect happiness and success of
. this early marriage is ,nly the exception
Sthat proves the rule that most such unions
turn out otnerwise.
'i PAST MIDDLE LIFE.
e On the other hand, take another amas
ble Itansy happy marriage I happen to Inow of.
SThais marriage presents the very antlitheela
f a the one 1 have just quoted. Hiere both
all the contracting partiet had long since
reached middle ife. To be exact, the
ly woman's age on the redding day was
id forty-elght. just the age of the woman
f whsea part 1 have played In "Years of
r' DlIecretea" while the man was five years
A beyond the half century marl. .ther
had been married before; he was a bache
,. lor and she a splnster--a fact which makes
ed their case all the more remarkable, for
while it isL a common enough thing for two
m people in middle life to marry and Jog
. along very happily together, such mar
the riage are invariably not the first experl*
ence of either the man or the woman.
my The mteresting tact about this particula,
e instance is the very great probability that
d had these elderly lovers married La their
es: ,eth., or even five years earlier than
I they did, the result would have been quite
different. I happen to have known both
stay he man and woman for more than twenty
ed years and from my own observation of
cm their characters arsd the testimony of thelai
. relatives and best ftriends. I am safe la
In sayin that at any earlier period in their
er, lives no man could have lived with the
et woman and no woman would have lived
. witUh the man. As It 11, they have Ino
thbeen maried six years and have not yet
Sseenm the weaila of their honeymoo.. The
all explanation is not tar to seek-at forty.
eight and fifty-five respectively, thU
say woman and this man roeached that matur.
ity which certain other sad more fortunate
- people attain earlier in lita
rk The quest:on of the right age to marry
mch would then, it seems to me, resolve Itel"
simply Into determinUng at what age any
Sid indvidual man or woman may be con
s idored uas having attained some degree of
in- mental and spiritual maturity. If this ageu
of 's fifty, sixty or even seventy, well and
cood. Who shall deny the right of elderly
men and women to a belated happinesa
and the companilonship of each other il
.by ther old age? It. on the other hand. It i
