Do you ever ask yourself "what if?"

 What if I didn't get married so young? What if someone would have encouraged me to get and do more in life?

What if???

Its not good to live with regrets. Just learn from them and move foward.

i never had to, because i married at 32

i am glad i waited.  i got to travel all over the world, had no worries, no kids, no jealous or insecure BF, partied like i wanted to.  and i i knew when i found the right guy i would.. and i did...

I use to, but the way my life ended up, I sort of feel like I am doing backwards. I love my husband and  I regret nothing. Our situation couldn't really be helped, it happened when it happened :-)

But I am thankful for it and I'm happy I had children younger. I am now 29 and my oldest is 8 and youngest is 3 soon. I am now kind of becoming back to myself and it was tough realizing that yes I was young but it wasn't anyone's fault or anything. 

It's just how my life turned out and I am happy with it. I have A LOT of it left. I can still do a lot and I have still gone out and still travel when I can.

I didn't marry until my mid20s, waited to have our first child when I was 30.
I have never felt like I gave anything up, or missed out on anything.

However, I do know a loot of people share your perspective.

Yes. What if we never immigrated to the states, what if we went to california not New York? What if....you get it.

Than I remember that it's stupid. What ifs are a narrow way to look at things.

Nope. I wouldn't have found my true love. I have no regrets about marrying young. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.

I married at 23 I don't think that's getting married young, I do wish when i was younger like out of high school i had a better support system and positive people around me.  I could be a lot further in life like already in a career, and i could had gotten rid of the negative people years years ago.  I think we all ask what if at some point were human.

No. I was young when I got married (20), but I didn't have to get married. I had my daughter at 15, but by 18, I had a college degree, and supported us fully. I sometimes I wish I'd had time to just be me, before I had kids, because I never really got to make mistakes, screw up, the way teens without kids can, but I'm happy. I love my life, I love my family, and I wouldn't change anything.
