Generosity in Marriage I'm responding to your blog about the importance of generosity in a marriage. I'm 26 and have been married since I was 21. Having been raised in a home where my parents listened to you every day, I grew up much more mature than my peers. I did get married very young, but feel the decision I made was an educated one.
