Miley Cyrus joins long list of young Hollywood brides

On Thursday the patron saint for plastic surgery, wife of rocker Ozzie Osbourne and mother to reformed Hollywood brats Kelly and Jack, declared that she was in favour of Miley Cyrus's union to our very own Liam Hemsworth, 22.

The America's Got Talent judge said in support of the future bride: "I think that she is 19, but in her head she is an old soul. She has lived 19 lives in 19 years ... She is an accomplished young woman, who knows what she wants at this time in her life."

And maybe that is true, but if 50 really is the new 40 and 40 is the new 30 ... doesn't that make 19 the new nine?

Surely if you were the parents of either singer Cyrus or The Hunger Games star Hemsworth, you'd be saying no, no, no, no, no. Give it five years. Give it 10!

While some people marry their soulmates and some meet their perfect matches at age 19, it would be ludicrous to imagine one can actually recognise a soulmate or a perfect match at an age when most kids are slugging through their first year out of high school and working out whether they can get arrested for stage-diving at Big Day Out. (Answer: Not unless you assault someone as you do it.)

Surely when your calling card only has three names on it and one of them belongs to Nick Jonas (who had a matching purity ring), you aren't in a position to judge anything except maybe a good flannelette shirt from a bad one, and maybe not even then.

More often than not teens who marry are struggling to stay together two decades on when they discover that kids, debt, careers and life have conspired against their teenage ideals.

Status: This wasn't Spears' first go at marriage. Six months prior, she married childhood friend Jason Alexander in Las Vegas and 55 hours later had it annulled. Spears and Federline had two boys, Sean Preston and Jayden, before filing for divorce in 2006. Spears boasts a happy update — in December she became engaged to longtime boyfriend Jason Trawick.

LeAnn Rimes

Married young: Rimes wed dancer Dean Sheremet at 19. He was 21.

Status: The two were married for eight years until Rimes began stepping out with actor Eddie Cibrian. She and Sheremet divorced in 2009, and Rimes married Cibrian in 2011.

Taylor Hanson

Married young: The MMMBop singer said "I do" to girlfriend Natalie Bryant at age 19.

Status: The two teens wed while Bryant was four months pregnant in 2010, and 10 years later, they're still going strong. The couple now have four children, and are expecting Baby No. 5 this year.

Olivia Wilde

Married young: The People Like Us star married Tao Ruspoli, the son of an Italian prince, on a bus when she was 19.

Drew Barrymore

Married young: Barrymore married Welsh bar owner Jeremy Thomas when she was 19. He was 32.

Status: They two married abruptly in a Los Angeles bar and the union lasted one month. But there's a happy update for the Big Miracle star — pregnant and beaming, she married art dealer Will Kopelman just days ago in an intimate wedding at her home in Montecito, Calif.

Avril Lavigne

Married young: It was a punk wedding for Lavigne, who wed Sum 41 singer Deryck Whibley in 2006 at age 21.
