Thomas Edison?

Question by Concienzudo: Thomas Edison?
Did you know that?

Wikipedia on Edison:

“On December 25, 1871, at the age of 24, Edison married 16-year-old Mary Stilwell, whom he had met two months earlier. They had three children:

Marion Estelle Edison (1873–1965), nicknamed “Dot”
Thomas Alva Edison Jr. (1876–1935), nicknamed “Dash”
William Leslie Edison (1878–1937)[10] ”

Before I get censored for putting this up I want to remind you I am quoting an article on Edison and giving you the link so you can look it up for yourselves. I am not calling anyone anything. It happens to be a fact.

Best answer:

Answer by old lady
Why would you get censored? But deeper than that – why are you putting this up? Is it a question? If so, I missed it. If you are looking at Mary’s age – in those days, 16 was not too young to get married. In fact, if a girl made it to 20 without getting maried, she was considered an old maid.
