  • Its possible. The question is will the relationship work down the line? People grow over time you may have the same views and tast in things but things changes as you grow older and wiser.

  • Maybe you can and maybe not knowing yourself is key to being in love.

  • Of course you can be in love at 18. You can fall in love at any age.

    Will is be a sustainable love? Only time will tell. Is it a mature love? Probably not, but with luck you can mature and grow together.

  • I was 17 when I married my husband. March will be 6 years for us. We have a 4 yr old and one on the way.

    It worked for us but it was a lot of work. Marriage isn't easy at any age. But we had the added problems of trying to figure out how to grow up together without growing apart.

  • Honestly, love can happen at any age. However, it's not the question about whether real love exists at a certain age. It's about whether that person is mature enough to handle it and properly guide it in a healthy direction. Love doesn't have anything to do with the age of a person, but infact the emotional and intellectual state of a person. If a person is naive about emotional relationships (romantic or otherwise) and/or isn't emotionally mature enough to handle them then it won't last. Some people have very much found their "soul mate" at a young age, whereas others have found nothing but heartache in something they thought was lasting love. It all depends on the two individuals involved.

  • Sure. But what you want at 25 or 30 may be drastically different than what you want at 18, same goes for what you look for in a mate. Be in love, but don't get pregnant, and don't married.

  • Yes, but love in and of itself is not a good basis for a lasting relationship.

  • Yeah! I fell in love with my husband when I was 18, got married a year later. Now we have 3 year old and a 3 month old. We have been married for 3 years!

  • Yes it is possible.
