Does marrying young risk an “Achy Breaky heart?”

The Office for National Statistics has just released figures for the number of divorces in England and Wales during 2010.
This week, the Sydney Morning Herald questions whether Miley Cyrus is -at 19 years old- too young to marry. Just how young is “too young” to say “I do”?
Cyrus and her fiancé, Liam Hemsworth, should be enjoying the glow of their engagement, but the young couple instead find themselves having to defend their decision to marry at such a young age.
The Herald lists a number of well-known marriages that began, and ended, young - Angelina Jolie, then 21, to Jonny Lee Miller, then 23. Drew Barrymore, then 19, to bartender Jeremy Thomas. Solange Knowles, then 17, to Daniel Smith, then 19. Macauley Culkin and Rachel Miner married at the age of 17 and parted ways two years later.
Bearing in mind that the latest statistics published by the Office for National Statistics, confirm that the divorce rate in the UK amongst those in the 29-34 age bracket is one of the fastest growing of all the demographic groups, might the writer have a point?
