I’m in a unique situation. I started dating SO when we were both 17; on my 18th birthday (we’d been dating for 3 months) he blurted out the big question when he gave me a promise ring, but then we both decided to wait so he could to a proper proposal and everything, so technically I’m a waiting bee at 19. We’ve been together for a year and a half but have known each other since we were 2 years old- my mom knew his family when his dad, uncle, and aunt were teenagers. So it’s kinda a special situation I suppose? And like PP have said- when you know, you know, and I am 100% sure he is the one for me.

@Hyperventilate:  I agree. I’d probably put it up a couple of years, but the general sentiment…

I was engaged when I was 23.  We didn’t get married until I was 29, though.

@farawayviolet:  I just think anyone below 19 hasn’t really begun to understand themselves. Not that I don’t think people wouldn’t be good together at that age, or would be able to respect the demands of a relationship, I just think they haven’t had enough time on earth of an appropriate age to really understand “what it takes to be me.” If you’re not stable with yourself, and know yourself well, you won’t be able to be a stable part of a relationship.

@Hyperventilate:  I agree. And there is nothing wrong with being engaged, but that is different to married.

I also think you change so, so much over the few years after.
