Maybe I'm just a realistic person rather than a romantic or emotional person (which I guess is very rare for a teenager) but I think it's a bad idea to get married when you have been together for like 7 months. I have always chosen brain over heart and so far, it's taken me far.
Most young women are just like you from what I've seen. The grounded ones will be the ones who get married and are happy with their decision. The others? Good luck. You've got a hard road in front of you.
My best friend just turned 19 in February. She's graduated from high school and is now in community college. She's is dating a guy who is 18 and a senior in high school.
Oh, she should be marrying a college graduate eh? I got you crystal clear.
Now they want to get married. She plans on marrying him and moving to another state while he is in basic training for the army.
Sounds like an excellent plan. She's gonna get married have his babies, and be supported by him. Military is an excellent career plan for young men if they have the desire and the willingness to do so.
You're just 19 years old; you go to community college; you work at a movie theatre; he cursed out your mother; he's in high school; he walked out on his last job for no reason; he is jealous of your friends... but you want to marry him?"
Why shouldn't he be? He wants her all to himself. I know you are scared for your friend, but she's not a child. She's 19, and it sounds like she has a good plan ahead of herself.
