I am 20 and my SO is 23. He is a year and a half away from graduating college. I will be attending college still. But we will have extra loan money for other expenses. Everything taken care of. I will also be living with him this coming January. We want to get married, but his dad said that he thinks we should wait until he graduates. Also, his mother hates me. But then again, she hates everyone so its nothing new.
Did any of you get married at a young age? Was it a good choice or not so much? If someone came to you for advice (like me) what would you tell them?

I would wait personally. At least until after he graduates. It will be enough for him to be focusing on finishing school, but then to have his mother harping in his ear about getting married against her wishes and all, you would hate for that to effect his education.
The other thing you can do is do a JOP ceremony and not tell anyone and then do a normal wedding for family purposes. It may work better for your taxes as well. I know people who have done that too.
That said, I got married when I was in my late 20's. There is no way in hell I would have been ready to marry at 20, much less 23. Good luck.
