If your teenage (between the ages of 14-17) daughter/son confessed to you that they were gay and that they were dating someone who they plan on marrying after that graduate high school or college, how would you feel about it?

Which would bother you more: that they are gay or all ready committed to someone at such a young age?

I wouldn't care if my son told me he was gay but what I would care about is him being in a committed relationship at such a young age. I don't believe that teens should be serious with anyone until they at least graduate high or college.

What if they get tied down at such an early age and then regret it years later?

Not alot of high school sweethearts stay married after a certain amount of time. They grow apart and realize that they aren't happy with each other anymore.

What if they are tied down to someone and there is someone better for them out there in the world?

I got married 3 months after my 18th birthday ... 25 years ago. I think young relationships CAN work. In fact, I think they tend to work better if both parties are mature enough.

eh, just because they say they are getting married after high school doesn't mean they actually will, I wouldn't freak out about it

I congratulate you on your marriage. 

I agree with what you said about both parties being mature enough. 

Problem is, not alot of teens are mature enough to stay committed. 

That's why the rate on teen marriage is so low, i believe.

 I'd never condone a marriage right after HS, no matter my child's sexual orientation.

I don't think that people should get married so young, but that's just my opinion.  Being gay is just another lifestyle.  Some of the nicest people I've ever known were gay.  I especially miss having gay friends right now...

I have no problem with a child being in a committed relationship at a young age, no matter if it's with a man or a woman, provided the child is capable of handling a committed relationship at a young age. Obviously I chose other.

I wouldn't have an issue with them being gay OR being in a committed relationship.
I would have an issue with them being in a committed relationship and me never having met this person.
