When Students Marry

I have been teaching in college for over a decade and I have seen various students of different stature and conditions and one thing that alarms most schools and teachers is the fact that there are students who marry unexpectedly while in school.  Thus, it is not surprising that they come to us with their wedding invitations and  diamond rings   to boot.

While other students tend to adjust faster with their role transitions, others simply stop and prefer to stay at home and remain a housewife or a househusband.

While it excites us that students have their legal partners, it saddens us too that they experience marriage life faster than they should. But, we can only hope that they can both succeed in school and in their personal life.
