Rachel and Rashi Kuhr are completing their educations in Detroit.

said. "But it was right for
me. A lot of women want to
hold off on marriage to work
on their careers. I don't see
why the two have to be
incompatible."
Mrs. Shelton is not work-
ing at present. Instead, she
is taking time to decide her
career goals. She earned a
bachelor's degree in political
science. Her husband, Paul,
is a lieutenant in the U.S.
Air Force.
Paul and Tracey met at
the University of Arizona
and were engaged in April
1991 with actual nuptials
planned much later. Upon
graduation, Tracey returned
to Michigan; Paul to Cali-
fornia. Together they decid-
ed to move up the wedding
date to September as they
were unsure where Paul
might be assigned by the
Air Force.
Tracey knew at a young
age she wanted to be mar-
ried. She always liked the
idea of being wife and moth-
er. Being single in an age of
AIDS was a scary thought,
too. But mostly, her mar-
riage was due to the right
person entering her life at
the right time.
"I'm sure everyone thinks
about AIDS. It makes me
glad I'm not single anymore.
I trust my husband with my
life. It's a trust you can't
have with someone you're
just dating," Mrs. Shelton
said.
At times, Mrs. Shelton
feels the difficulties of her
young marriage — the low
wages of entry-level work,
strict budgeting, living on a
military base — but feels
comfortable with the life she
and her husband have cre-
ated.
"I already had the oppor-
tunity to sow my wild oats. I
used to go to Canada on
weekends when I was in
high school and I attended
college more than 2,000
miles away from home. I
was crazy young, so I don't

feel like I missed out on
anything. Any wild oats left
can be sown with my hus-
band," she said.
Rashi Kuhr always knew
he would marry young. It
was his wife, Rachel (Kar-
lin), who couldn't believe it.
"I always said I'd never
marry. I couldn't find some-
one I even wanted to spend
a week with," Mrs. Kuhr
said.
But after living for a year
in Israel on a B'nei Akiva
program, an Orthodox youth
group, and a year in New
York studying, both with
Rashi, Rachel's opinion of
marriage changed.
This June, at 19 years of
age, Rachel married Rashi.
He is 21.
The couple lives in Oak
Park. Mrs. Kuhr attends

Wayne State University,
while her husband studies
psychology at the University
of Detroit. They work as
local advisers for B'nei
Akiva.
It is not uncommon for
Orthodox couples to marry
early in life and start a fam-
ily — Mrs. Kuhr said almost
everyone she knew at Stern
College in New York was
engaged. But Mr. and Mrs.
Kuhr said religion played
little or no role in their deci-
sion.
"My parents wanted us to
wait until we were older, to
get more education," Mrs.
Kuhr said.
Confident they had found
their partners in life, Rachel
and Rashi agreed to wait to
