    My fiance and I were going to get married after being together for 6 months when we were 18. The best decision we ever made was to wait. We got engaged and we're still engaged almost 2 years later.

    Thank you for my siggy Stacey!

    The best advice we ever recieved (his family was for our wedding, mine was not) was that you cannot postpone the enevitable simply to try to make people happy. You need to do what is best for ya'll and forget what anybody says. They will either come and enjoy themselves or forever regret that they did not come. My mom didn't come and you know what, I couldn't care less. That was my day, not her day to through a pity party and get the attention. And now looking back I think she regrets it not me. Do what is best for ya'll not for everybody else.

    Why not wait? If you are that young then waiting wont hurt. If you are supposed to be together, your relationship will only get stronger. And, I am not one to say that you don't "know" you are supposed to be with him. I knew after DH hugged me for the first time. But, still, 4 months is such a short time. Personally, I say wait.

    mine and dhs situation was actually the opposite, we met in feb of last year got engaged in may and got married in october and everyone in my family was so supportive and i was totally not expecting that, i guess do what you feel is right you know, maybe talk with your family to help them understand better?

    I say go with how you feel. If you feel you're meant to be, and you really both feel that you can handle a marriage and are willing to make that commitment than go for it. It doesnt matter how others feel, they aren't the ones getting married.

    Just because you're young has nothing to do with it. Not everyone is stupid and naive just because they are young.

    Hope things go well.

    I think you should do what you want, just make sure that it is what YOU want. My family is split in my case, some say go ahead, some say wait, but i believe you love who love, and your the one who lives with your choice, not them. good luck

    Neutral yeah...

    I'm not going to do what my family wants me to do, if we are ready to get married next May then I'm going to get married next May, if they can't support me in whatever I want to do then they do not have to be at my wedding.

    I was prepared to be disowned from my family the day I announced I was getting married. I got married at 16 and 8 months after being with my then boyfriend. I told them I knew this was right and I was going to do it. I have never been one to care about what other people think to be honest. I said to them if they felt they couldn't love me that was fine and I hung up. Happily ever after however, I think they like him more then they like me
