  • Congratulations! Thats what I say. I got married 3 months after my 19th birthday to my dh, who was also in the military and home on leave. He was 19 also. We had been together 3 yrs at the time. Now we have been married 13 years. My sister and her dh got married at age 18. They have been married 21 years.

  • If you love him he loves you and the two of you have a healthy relationship then screw what everyone says. Be happy and don't wrry what people are saying at the end of the day its not those shit talkers words that help you sleep, or take care of you, or love you. It's your husband, its your family thats all that should matter to you. Congrats on your Baby girl.

  • I got married at 19. I don`t think it is a bad thing at all as long as you fully know what you are getting yourself into.

  • I say good for you!
    I got married to my hubby 34 days after my 18th bday. my family and every1 i knew told me not to and still dont really approve. I personally don't care what they say. My hubby and I are very happy (we are going on our 3rd ann. in a few months) we have a baby girl as well. Don't bother listening to them. someone will always have something to say no matter how old you were

  • I'd say you're too young to make a decision about a lifelong commitment
    I hope it works,but the odds aren't in your favor

  • If its for the good reasons then i dont see a problem with it. But i have seen people get married just because the boyfriend is getting sent over seas. i dated a guy who just wanted me to marry him so he knew for sure he would have someone to come to. We last two days after that.

  • It is young but that doesn't mean anything if you are both mature, that's important, & that you LOVE each other : )
