 Dh has a niece that's 18 and getting married next month.  Do you know of teen marriages that have worked out?  I was 17 when we got married and our marriage has been wonderful.

Mine has worked out so far. Got married at 16. Been married for 2 years, together for 4. I know that's not very long yet, but still.

Got married at 18 been married for almost 16 years.We have had rough patches, but if you want it to work and both try it can last. Our marriage has been no rougher than someone who waited til they were older. I think the reasons you marry is what it is about not the age. We did not get married for a child. I was not pregnant. We married for the right reasons.

I know a girl that got married at 18 her dh was going into the marines and it was a huge mistake for her. I would never approve my children to get married so young they are still so impulsive at that age. I felt to young when I got married at 24.

My parents got married when they were 19. It's worked out for them so far (21 years and counting).

I was (barely) 19 when I got married.  Dh was 23 though, so do we still count, lol?  Anyway, in August we'll be celebrating our 19th anniversary.

And oh, my parents were 16 and 17 when they got married.  They were married almost 53 years before my mom died.
