Esther asked me today how old she has to be to marry Ezra.
“Why 29?” she asked.
“Well” I replied “you graduate from high school at 18, college at 22, grad school at 25ish…you then need to get a job and work at the job for awhile and you need to travel the world and touch at least six of the seven continents before you get married – so I am thinking that 29 years old would be the earliest that you would want to get married.”
Esther thought and then asked “well is it legal for me to get married before 29 if I decided to do it earlier?”
“No” I replied “there is a written law that you must be at least 29 and some say maybe even 32.”
