What is ur opinion about teen mums?


Teen mum is very uncommon these days, but 100 years ago, it is very common for girls to become a mum when they are only 15~16 years old. In Roman times, the law state it is the father's responsibility to find her daugther a good man as a husband by the time she is 16, with the law saying if the man is of bad character, the daughter can reject her father's arrangement and if the father failed to find his daughter a husband by 16, he must pay a yearly fine, till her daughter is married.

    True, I think this is one of the reason, in the older days they believe a wife should obey her husband, because although the mum was 14 or 15 the dad most likely is 19 or 20 more responsible
