Too Young

In college, my roommate set me up on a blind date with his cousin. We met at a restaurant and the first thing I noticed was her large glasses. Then, the braces on her teeth. I was twenty years old and getting a very bad feeling. I asked her how old she was and she told me fifteen. Apparently, my roommate came from a family that believed in girls marrying really young. It was their religion or something. Not for me, thank you.
