18 year old cant wait for family...

Do you think its okay for an 18 year picturing 12 years into the future with a family of four? Thats all I seem to think about lately. It makes me happy thinking about my future hubby and kids. Even though I don't even know them. I don't know where this comes from but that's all I've been thinking about for the past year. I don't have any desires to go out and party and do clubbing or drinking like most 18yos. I cant think about getting married (minus the huge wedding) and having my first born. What do you think?

  • What a great goal. Children are the grestest joy of a mother's life. Thank God because it almost makes up for the fact that you will never have a vacation in the next decade, smell always like dirty diapers, and naps are only for the babies. To get ready for your 4 kids get an education, a hobby, a house and a good car. Being educated and self-sufficent will help attract a man along the same lines. A degree isnt just a good job qualifier, but shows commitment.

  • I did the same thing at your age, If you obsess about it, then it will never happen. Mainly because you tell all potential boyfriends about what you want. All it will do is scary them off. Your 18, you are still a baby. Go to college and stop thinking about your future family, If you don't you may be disappointed.

  • Yeah. When I try to figure out 39 + 47 my brain hurts so bad. Other than that I'm good at english. (trying to start writing my first book) and get my GED. I'm trying to find another job at a bank.
