@LovinChrist18: im glad it helped! I completely understand. I am 20 years old and my fiancé and I will be getting married 2 months after our 5 year anniversary. We started dating at 16 and we have talked about marriage since like the first six months. When you know, you know. And when your young most people assume its just a phase and try to tell you that your rusing into things. As long as you are confident in yourself and your relationship, you can handle anything. Evenwhen people tell you that your crazy.

@LovinChrist18: As a mother of two daughters myself, if one of them were engaged and getting married at 18, I would be constantly physically sick about it, constantly in tears, and it would probably drive me to drinking. I can very clearly imagine why she is having a hard time.
I would tell my daughter “You are so young that you don’t even know what it is that you don’t know yet. Your brain hasn’t even stopped growing yet. You need to let go of this age is nothing but a number crap and listen to the people who have been around long enough to know better. The chances of this marriage working are astronomically small.”
I am sure you have heard all this stuff, and I am sure that just like everyone else who does this you are thinking “We are the exception and will last forever”. Everyone believes as strongly as you do that they are the exception.
What I am trying to say is, I would be absolutely terrified for my daughter if she were going to do what you are going to do. She loves you to pieces and it terrifies her to think of her child taking on this challenge at this age. Right or wrong, this is what moms do.
