ok so i have been dating my girlfriend samantha for 3+ years now. i was woundering what people thought about marriage for younger people like myself. i am 19 shes 18. i was goin to wait til i turn 20 then she would be 19. but we know we love eachother, we would never do eachother wrong, but some people think its a death trap and tell us we are stupid. i want peoples input on this and tell me straight up if you really think we are stupid for considering it! thanks eric

I think you think it twice first heheh lol. I hope you are stable financially and emotionally and ready for this. I regreted myself that I married. I wanted to have a stable career first but did marry in the name of love. I think marry her when you turn 25.

I think it should be up to the two of you,if both of you feel that you are ready and want to get married and support each other then marriage is great not that it won't have its up and down and all but you've been together three plus years you said and that is a long time to be together now days. So if your ready go head and do it. Congrats!

I don't know but all of my friends that married young or were in long term relationships since their teenage years have broken up and divorced. Most of my friends that are still married, got married to people they dated for less than 5yrs and definitely not in highschool. I personally think you guys are too young, then again, who am I to tell you all what to do. It is also important to realize marriage also means a lot of financial responsibilities. Are you guys ready for that? Ultimately, you will do what you want to do and if you made a mistake, well, then so be it.

I think it is cool that you are even asking this question. Well I will say this. I think I was pretty level headed at 19, however, I got married at 24 and that did not work out. I now, realize that for me 24 was too young. I remarried at 27, and have been very very happy and I'm still married and hope to always be. I talked to a very good female friend, old enough to be my mom, when I was younger and she said she got married at 27 and for her she thought she was mature at 27 but would not have been before. Of course everyone is different. The best of luck to you.

You are lucky to have found true love and companionship at a young age. If you feel you are both ready, take the plunge. I know so many people who are over 30 and regret being single at this age. They feel most people their age are already married so they find it hard to date. Goodluck!

If you both are that confident that you can live life (and I mean a whole life, not a short period), then why not? Provided you are both of leagally marraigable age. In India a man has to be 21 and a girl 18 before the marraige is considered legal.

I think that you should propose to this girl and that you two should not fight destiny!!! If you truly love each other the way that you say than your ages should not matter and you have already managed to go through the hardest years for relationships to last and those are in fact the teenage ones. You can easily turn these three years into sixty three + years if you are serious and truly know that this is what you want than go for it!!!
