Now let me start off by saying that I was an ORIGINAL viewer to this series. I watched it on T.G.I.F. every Friday night as it aired, from day one. I was
also pretty young back then. I believe I was 12 years old during season 7. I was so happy that C/T got married because they had been together for the entire show, and I thought the love story was good (not so cute anymore now that I'm older).
Im Not Bashing Boy Meets World at all I Love It! This Is Just My Opinion
Anyway, now that I look back and re-watch the episodes from the later seasons (6+7), I have to wonder WHY C/T were so stupid? Rather why were the writers so stupid as to write these two getting married at age 19ish, no JOBS, and no place to live??? In the episode, "The honeymoon is over", C/T come back and just assume that they will live in the apartment. Then when they learn that they have been kicked out, they try to live in Cory's old dorm room (a violation of dorm rules), and then when that fails, they try to go to mommy and daddy, but why did NO one tell them that before that got married that they would at least need jobs/security? After all, if these two are mature enough to get married, surely they would have thought that through. And if they didn't....well someone, their parents maybe....should have cared enough to tell them to wait a few more years.
Which brings me to my main point that it was dumb to have these get married so young. I mean I guess it was just to appease the viewers with some pay off, but it was still so Dumb. Why not really be mature and wait until after college? Poor little Topanga was scared that HER marriage would fail just because her parents' did. Give me a break. I can rant a little more about people on this show basing THEIR relationships off others, (Shawn, Angela, and Topanga), and not thinking that said relationships could or would ever measure up, but that's for another time.
Look, I know it's just TV, but now that I am older (20), I don't get why people in 2000 would rush into marriage. Afterall, we don't die at 50 anymore, so it's not like there was any real reason to hurry up, (except that Cory wanted sex, Give me a break).
Besides, I never realized how much of a Nag Topanga truly was. And not even just the later seasons, but in the early ones too. She was always whining about something Cory was doing wrong, and God forbid he had one night of fun with the guys, he was a "cheater".
