Personally, I would tell you to wait. You are very, very young and you haven’t been together very long. Enjoy the exciting time of being in a new and wonderful relationship. You guys aren’t going anywhere — you’ll be just as able, if not moreso, to propose a few years down the line.

Dilyn :  Wait. No matter how grown you think you both are or how well you think you know each other, you aren’t and you don’t. If it’s real, it’ll be just as real 2-3 years from now.

Yes. You should wait.

I’d say wait until you’ve been dating for at least 2 years. And make sure you’re both ready to be living independently as adults.

How has she been with you through everything if you’ve only been dating for 6 months?

You’re an adult, do what you want. But my personal opinion is that you guys should dimply be together for a few years before getting engaged. You want a wife and family, nothing wrong with that. But that comes with a lot of responsibility – financial (lots of money needed!), emotional, physical. Can you handle that? Are you ready to work full-time while supporting kids? Are you ready to make medical decisions for a wife if she’s in an accident? Are you ready to be a mortgage slave for the next 30 years? Are you ready to sacrifice a good amount of your dreams for the good of your wife and children?

Or would you rather just be in love, be free, and have fun during these young years? It’s up to you.

Dilyn :  Yes, you’re too young. You should wait. I find it hard to believe she’s been there for you with “everything” when you’ve only been together 6 months. You have the rest of your lives ahead of you. There’s absolutely no reason to rush.

If you have to ask, you already know the answer

Dilyn :  uhm, yes you are WAY too young and you should wait. If you even have to contemplate the question…you’re too young.

Your way too young. If you feel the same way in 3 years then propose. You will still be young then. A lot of people get married at late 20s early 30s these days. When people get married in teens or early 20s its usually because someone is knocked up or they have been together since like 13 or something

I would wait. People change a lot from 18-25.

Wait. Wait wait wait  wait wait wait wait wait wait.  Seriously. Wait.  A long time.  If it’s right, it’ll be right in the future.  If it’s not right, it’s a hell of a lot easier and cheaper to breakup than it is to divorce.  Enjoy falling in love and growing up.

My husband and I got together at 18 and started talking marriage very early on as well. We got engaged after 7 years together. We got married just before our 8 year anniversary at 26. I cannot tell you how glad I am that we waited! Looking back I think we would have been insane to get married at 18/19.

Absolutely wait. There is no reason to rush.

This is the honeymoon phase when everything seems perfect. It is a great time! But defiantly not the time to propose non matter the ago- definitely when you are so young and haven’t been together that long! Enjoy this phase while it lasts. You will figure it out

With the combination of still being in your teens and not even dating for a year, I absolutely suggest waiting. What’s the rush?
