Well I’m not trying to judge but I think at that age you are out of place in the wedding world. Its a very young age to get married.

i’m sorry if we’ve done anything to make you feel unwelcome. It is tough being young and engaged but if you know you are making the right decision then who are other people to tell you otherwise, right?

I agree with the PuntaCana. I personally feel that 17/18 is too young to be getting married, but to each their own.

What I meant was that you are i the minority. Most people in the wedding world are older than 17 therefore in a sense you are out of place and kind of have to expect that.

I’d agree that 17/18 is a more unusual age in the wedding world.  It may not be anyone’s intention to make you feel out of place, but with that age range being less represented than most others, a lot of it will come naturally. 

I’ve always been a believer that age is purely a number, and that people shouldn’t be taken for their number but rather their maturity and behavior.  If you and your fiance are ready to get married then there’s nothing wrong with that.  But do expect age to be a factor to most other people.  I know many other people, along with myself, that got countless age related comments about being too young in the early to mid 20s.

Just curious…what is different about your situation than other 17/18 year olds out there?

Is your Fiance in or joining the military? And I hope this isn’t rude, but where is Rathdrum, ID? I grew up in Boise and I have never heard of it.

I am friends with one girl that lives on base (we live on an AF base) and she was married at 17 and has a 1 year old daughter. She is 19 now, but she is really mature for her age and we get along for the most part. You will meet a lot of younger girls that are married in the military.

Sometimes I feel out of place here (and in real life!), I’ll be married just before my 20th birthday.

Sounds like you’ve got more going on in your life than some 20-somethings do, and are probably much more mature than many 20 year olds anyway.

Remember when getting married at 15 or 16 was completely normal?  It wasn’t even that long ago.  I think depending on life circumstances a person can be mature by that point (although now, of course, you pretty much can’t get married at 15 or 16).  I work with a lady (who is 80 something) who was married when she was 16 and says she had a wonderful marriage. 

I hope things work out for you three and that you can find a support system here and around you!
