oomis1105, when I write thinking about marriages, I hope you dont think I mean a little girl dressing up like a Kallah on Purim or wearing her mothers shoes. I mean thinking as in “introspection, deliberation about what they hope to gain and how they plan to grow in the future.” I mean having discussions in school with teachers which we started in 11th and 12th grade. By boys having the Rabbeimim bring it up in class, learning Mussar sefarim, which my husband’s class was encourged to by his Rosh yeshiva every night after night seder. These actions make a boy and girl think seriously about building a home. Why have boys strt this at 22? start at 17-18 then maybe they will be ready for marriage sooner.
