well there is no way that we can answer if you are ready, but in my opinion if you are seeking counseling it’s not the right time to get engaged. The fact that you are seeking counseling shows dedication and respect for your relationship which is a good thing- I don’t think it’s bad that you are but I just don’t think it’s the right time until you get those big fights under control.


that’s just my 2 cents

I agree with PP.

The fact that you ae going to counselling shows great maturity.

Get married when you both feel you are ready, there is no rush 🙂

It’s only about time when the time is right, regardless of how long you’ve been together.

It may very well be stress, and kudos on going to counseling. That said, people do change a lot at the age you are now so the fighting could also signal that you’re trying to negotiate and figure out if you still fit together as the people you are now becoming. You may, you may not. But the next couple years will really cement that for you. Take your time, don’t give in to pressure or rush–you will know if you are ready. It will feel right, you won’t question it. (I married my high school sweetheart, btw, but at 26. Waiting never hurts.)

@Webster13:  You are only 20 and people are wondering why you haven’t had a child?

@Webster13:  I think you are doing very well for a 20 year old! Don’t worry what any one else thinks or says! You two love each other and have a kid together! What more could anyone want?! Let him take his time since you are both still very young!
