Yes, Justin Bieber is only 17 years old — but that isn’t stopping some of the romance rumors from creeping up when it comes to the singer’s relationship with Selena Gomez.
While you can interpret the Biebs’ interview with WWD as if he is speaking in general terms, it is ultimately made pretty clear that Justin is planning to tie the knot at a much younger age than some of his fellow personal idols in the music world:
“Well, by 25 or 26, I want to see myself, like, married or start looking for a family. I want to be a young dad. I want to be able to have done what I wanted to do — to be successful, to do a movie or whatever. But if the time is right, I definitely want to be married by 25 … One thing — I’m not looking to get married now.”
Starting a family sooner rather than later does run in Justin’s family — his parents Pattie Mallette and Jeremy Jack Bieber were both technically teenagers when he was born, even though they were both over the age of 18. There were some major struggles early in Justin’s life due to his parents trying to make ends meet, and in that way his story is all the more inspiring.
As for Justin’s current relationship, he and Selena have been dating officially since earlier this year — and despite all of the rumors to the contrary, they are still going strong.
Do you think an earlier marriage is the best way for Justin to go?
