6 Female Movie Characters Who Got Married When She Was Still a Teenager
Love can happen at any age. Not just ‘puppy love,’ either, but real, true ‘I’ve found my other half’ romance. Take Bridge to Terebithia, for example. Jess and Leslie (played by Josh Hutcherson and AnnaSophia Robb) are only 12 years old, but they are definitely soulmates. If love can happen at any stage in life, then it makes sense that young people head over heels for each other would consider marriage.
While many believe that one should probably be able to do things like rent a car, or legally drink alcohol, or even see an R-Rated movie in theaters before tying the knot, some simply cannot wait and feel the need to get hitched, like ASAP… even if they’re still teenagers. We’ve seen it in TV, music, movies and IRL, but here’s a shout out to the six movie brides who were married before age 20.
Bella Swan in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn
If you were Team Edward, then this wedding was basically the BEST THING to ever happen in The Twilight Saga, even though it was technically a compromise that Robert Pattinson's character comes makes with Kristen Stewart's: he will turn her into a vampire if she marries him first. Of course the girl wants to turn immediately, because her love is stuck as a 17-year-old forever and she doesn't want to keep aging while her bae maintains his youthful looks.
Not only is the decision to wed kinda crazy, but so is the fact the brunette was only 18 (in real years) when it happened. She's initially pretty reluctant to tie the knot so young, given that her parents were married AND divorced very early in life. But since she knows that she's that Edward is ~the one~, she agrees anyways.
