Do Celebrities Get Married Too Young?

2007 was a big year for Hilary Duff, which included cozying up to a new boy and becoming one of Hollywood's fittest celebs. It may seem like everything in her life is coming at her fast, but in the January issue of Cosmo Girl, she talks about pacing her romantic life, saying, "I'm definitely not ready to get married. . . . I think a reason that people in this business get married young is that they feel like everything comes to them sooner in life. It's normal to be like 'Okay, what's next?'" Do you agree with Hilary — do stars get married too young?

Maybe not so much too young, but more like too impulsively.

in all the rest of the world it's when people get in their č0's is normal, except for US. where people are desperate like SATC gals and wait till they're 40.

I don't think it's that they get married too young, it's that they don't date long enough. It's all about getting what you want, when you want it, and why put in the years of effort to a relationship to find out if it's the right person, when you can just go and have a huge wedding right away? I'm 24 and I'm getting married in May, so I'm pretty young... but I've been with my fiance over 5 years. 5 years is enough time for us to know that we can last together... whereas the celebrities who date for 8 months and then announce their engagement... well, sure, the first 8 months of most relationships are great. It's when you hit the 1-2 year mark that things start to go downhill, and you have to make sure you can last through the bad times, too.

yeah think about it. Her ex Chad married so young and got divorced not even a year later. Joel knocked up Nicole, I mean the list goes on and on.

Britney, Jessica Simpson, Tom Cruise, Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp, Will Smith, Jennifer Lopez, Kate Winslet...All married and divorced by the age of 30. Not so common around me.

I don't think it has to do with age. I think that since they have so much $$, they don't care if they get a divorce or two.

maybe/ it seems like they just have their lives scrutinized so much, that even if they waited until they were considered "old enough" we would still say there was something wrong.

i agree with agegie1: everyone is getting married young. my friends are either married or have no inclination of ever being married. i think i am the only one out of my friends who isn't married, or engaged, or divorced . . . you just notice more with celebs. and as much as Hilary is a good girl, i think it's crap to talk crap about ppl getting married young, when she's got boyfriends who buy her cars after fingering her for only a few months, or dating guys too old for you (when you're barely legal). what happens when you get married Hil'??? then what will you say??? i think you shouldn't comment on what your peers are doing, especially when it comes to things like marriage. who's to say what you're gonna be next month, or next year.

I think many celebrities are so quick to marry because they think that if it doesn't work out (or they find out they actually have to WORK at it), they'll just get divorced. In hollywood divorce doesn't have quite the same negative social and economic consequences as it does in the "real world." Look at Katherine Heigl, she was just quoted saying that "marriage is a crapshoot," such a cynical view for a bride-to-be! It's like she's already given herself an out!

I think Hilary hit the nail on the head with that statement. They do seem to look for the next adventure even if they aren't really ready for such a big step. On a side note, I think she looks really cute in these pictures!
