I don’t have any wedding plans in the near future, although it is a topic my boyfriend and I discuss often. He is 21 and I am 18. When I hear of other people get married at this age, I freak out and feel they are too young. But I know I am being hypocritical towards them because I have high hopes of receiving a ring soon. The date April 7, 2012 has popped up into our conversations. It will be our 2 year anniversary of dating and a month before I graduate college.
So, my question to you is…What age is too young to get married, if there even is an age?

So you have only been dating for 9 months now? Am I interpreting this correct?

If you feel right about the decision to get married at a young age, then it shouldn’t matter what other people feel. However, if it does weight heavy on your mind- I might try for a long engagement (a couple of years) after college. Life changes a lot around that time, so some extra time to plan and get to know eachother shouldn’t hurt 🙂

In my opinion… wait a while. If you two are meant to be there is no reason to jump into it. My fiance and I were talking marriage after only dating 6 months, we just knew we wanted to be with one another the rest of our lives. He proposed to me after a year dating, just after turning 21. We could have gotten married less than a year later but we decided to wait. By the time we will get married we will be dating for 4 years and engaged 3 years.
This was the best decision we ever made. We were able to graduate college, pass our boards exams, and get settled into our adult lives before getting married.You two are still young, enjoy it even if you get engaged. No reason to jump into marriage.
Hope that helps!!

Marriage is not about age. its about being mature and ready for such a big committment. In my personaly opinion the average marrying age for women is 24-28. anyone under 21 is young in my book, but that really has no impact on how ready you are to get married.

First off – you’re 18 and have been dating someone for 7 months. Marriage really shouldn’t be on your mind yet, IMO.
Personally, I think that you should be able to participate in your own champange toast at your wedding (i.e. be at least 21 when you get married). I also think that you should have spent some time living fully on your own and supporting yourself 100% (i.e. full-time job, paying for rent, tuition (if still in school), food, insurance, bills, etc).
Lastly, if you have to question whether you are too young to get married ….. you are 100% too young to get married.
