I'm only posting this thread to vent about the stupidity of our Dor (YES, STUPIDITY)
1) there is a "Kol Koreih" by a lot of Gedolim.
in the "Kol Koreih" they state because of the age gap that is the reason why there is a shidduch crisis (which might or might not be true) therefore BOYS SHOULD GET MARRIED A YEAR YOUNGER.
Boys getting married a year younger means having someone less mature in a marriage (do you think a 21-22 year old boy can be in a caring relationship where he has to emotionally support his wife at times).
Boys getting married younger means having an additional year of supporting a newlywed couple in an economy that is struggling as is
Boys getting married younger means fathering a baby at a younger age, do you think a 21-22 year old can take care of another human being? (I'm not talking exceptions here)
2)In R Avraham Twerski's section a father laments that his 20 year old daughter has been dating for 2 (yes TWO) WHOLE YEARS and no one said yes, should he give up on his daughter and say she will NEVER GET MARRIED, he mentions she isn't skinny (not sure if she's fat though)
BTW he answer's "calm down, there's someone for everyone"
WHY DOESN'T THE HAMON AM WAKE UP!!!
The main reason (I feel at least, from experience and from what people tell me) is that people are too caught up in DETAILS (weight, wealth, age, height, family issues, does he/she fold a tablecloth lengthwise or widthwise, is he/she a scraper, stacker etc.)
This warrants me coming out of my shell for a little bit
