As a parent with teenagers and also as a parent who married at 17yrs old (still married after 19yrs) I would encourage her to wait. You have heard the saying, "Love waits", and if they are truly in love then when she turns 18yrs old and has graduated high school then they can get married. Of course the ideal situation would be to finish college and have a career first. I know many people do not wish to go the college route in their lives but it does make for a better financial situation.

I meant to say that I understand that they are getting engaged only but they should wait along with any marriage plans.
