Virgin Mary Highly Likely a Teen Mom!

'How old was Mary when she had Jesus' tops the most popular holiday searches, according to Yahoo.com.

The Virgin Mary was most likely a teen mom, but that wasn't taboo back then. Life expectancy was 45 to 50 years, and girls were married off as soon as they hit puberty, the New York Daily News reported.

Some accounts say that Mary, a Jewish woman from Nazareth, may have been as young as 12.

However, the web site biblelessons4kidz.com puts her age at 14 or 15.

According to the site, created by Christian parents who make Bible lessons kid-friendly, Mary was engaged to the carpenter Joseph when she was visited by the angel Gabriel.

He told her she would be the mother of the Messiah. Joseph was later informed of the Immaculate conception by another angel in a dream, who told Joseph to marry Mary.

He did, and her son Jesus was later born in Joseph's hometown of Bethlehem.
