Am I too young to get married?

Before you point fingers at my parents, this was a choice made by Dillon and I. My parents agreed and were very supportive of my pregnancy :)

  • Yes,. I feel you're too young to be married. But what I feel doesn't matter. If you seriously think you can spend the rest of your life with your so, then good luck, and kudos.

  • I got married at your age and it's been so right for me. Feel free to PM me anytime I've been where you are, though my parents weren't quite so supportive.

  • When you are making posts about being worried your SO is gay then that screams CHILD! So I would have to say too young.

  • I have no idea how old you are but if you are getting married based on the fact you are regnant it may or may not be a good idea. Only you really know. Keep in mind that you grow and change a lot between the ages of 18 and 25. You may be an adult at 18 and you may be mature at 18 but you continue to mature and change as you gain more experience as an adult. Make sure you and you BF are growing in the same direction. It can cause a lot of friction to have one person mature and grow in a different direction than the other. I married at 23. I love my DH dearly BUT we are different people than we were 7 years ago. We are having to work to make this marriage work. He is still growing up. It makes it hard. If I were to meet DH today I think we would be excellent friends but we would never get married.
