Biblical View of Marriage #121: They just keep getting younger and younger

He [Jehoram] was thirty-two years old when he began to reign, and he reigned eight years in Jerusalem. He conducted himself like the kings of Israel of the line of Ahab, since the sister of Ahab was his wife; and he did evil in the Lord's sight.

(2 Kings 8:17-18, New American Bible)

He [Ahaziah] was twenty-two years old when he began his reign, and he reigned one year in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Athaliah; she was the daughter of Omri, king of Israel. He conducted himself like the house of Ahab, doing evil in the Lord's sight as they did, since he was related to them by marriage.

(2 Kings 8:26-27, New American Bible)
