    i hear 14 as well or 15 at the latest.

    she died about 2 years after the crucifixion of christ

    and was a second wife to joseph, and joseph was a very old man.

    at least this is according to the manuscripts of history.

    mary gave birth to other brothers of jesus and sisters too. and was NOT a perpetual virgin.

    When you see the stories of nativity showing Joseph and Mary involved in romantic Love, forget it, that part of the story is false tradition and poetic surpluss.

    i think.. that back then you were basically a grown up at 12 or 13... though i'd checkout some sites online. 14 sounds more than reasonable to me (hows that for a message for kids in school? :P)

    the people i respect most? the like 25-26yr old married pastors with like 6 kids ;P Christians should get married like asap yo - dat'n is for ohio.. just dont make bad choices.

    2nd wife? i'd never heard anything in that direction - maybe he's got lilith/adam on mind?

    The BIBLE does not tell. some say that she develop into in her young ones, some say even youthful, some say she develop into in her 20s. the only clue that i understand of is that her cousin develop into to old to have infants while she have been given pregnant with John, and Mary have been given pregnant 3 months later.

    Since she was a virgin I'm sure she was young. The bible does not give her age.

  • don't believe what they say on the tv. they don't know. the bible does not tell us how old Mary was. I rather believe the bible then the tv. no one even knows how old Joseph (Jesus stepfather) was either.

    Not sure, but she was a teenager, all I know is that her fiance was double her age.
