Hi, Littlelady. I so understand how you feel because I felt the same way. But you'd be surprised how much your viewpoints about very important things can change just within a 2-5 year period when you're this age. It's quite amazing and hard to believe until it happens to you - how you'll see something at 22 that you didn't at 20; or you'll feel completely opposite about something when you're 24 that you did when you were 20. If it were me, I would wait a few years. I know right now it seems like time's getting away from you, but now is a wonderful time to experience and learn things that you won't be able to when you are married. And if you're with the right person now, he'll still be there a few years from now.
Yes. You should further your education first. Marriage at a young age or any age for that matter doesn't always work out. You need the skills to be able to make a decent living for yourself and any children you may have. Always have a plan B...
If you love them and your foundation is solid and you know you can make it financially and have a safe home then no you're not too young to marry. Im 17 and in second semester of college. I be married at 23. If I could marry sooner, I would.

This is a very subjective question and everyone would just put an opinion based on a past/current experience. Marriage is all about responsibility, just make sure your other half is responsible, mature and he MUST provide you with a sustainable good life ahead.
Second of all, i dont see how a person cant enjoy life while being married?! its a misconception that everybody takes as an excuse for not getting married, and i am not intending to make this as a debate point, just stating a fact.
When it comes to my advice to you, just give it a deep thought and consult people who know whats best for you. Make sure you know the person you are committing BECAUSE ITS A LIFETIME DECISION.
Best of luck.
I'm 27, my wife is 23, and we are having a great life :)
Be sure your ready, my grandma got married at nineteen and she didn't go to college, had 3 kids she couldn't learn to love at the time, got a divorce, had to take 2 jobs, and now my mom hate her brother and sister, and my grandpa showed me pictures of his other grandchildren the first time we met. But I have the best grandpa in the world (step) and my grandma graduated in 2003 from uwm and happily retired
It's not the same for everyone but 20 seems a little young to me. My advice would be don't get married just because you want to be married. If you get married I think you should do it because you have found someone you love and you think that you would make a good team for life. People used to get married a lot younger but lots of things were different back then. For one thing people's life spans were shorter and fathers wanted to marry their daughters off sooner. I'm 61 and I've never been married. I can't even conceive of what my life would have been like if I'd been married at 20. I'm not saying you should wait until you're 61. I'm just saying you'll be a lot different in a few years. I think I'm almost old enough now but maybe I'll skip it entirely.
I'm 19. To me it is. Seriously I'm in college. Despite what certain adults think because of my age I'm a smart young girl. Why would I think about marriage now? I am far from settling myself. But that's just me. It's up to you. Don't do it because you feel you have to or you're in love with the idea of marrying. Do it because it feels right and also because you're mature enough to handle it.
YES! When you get married and have a child, its tough to do what you want to do what you want to do. for example, places to go, across the country, or go bungee jumping(my favorite) when you have a child and your still in school, its harder than a diamond. i would give it a couple of years until 25 at least, hopefully 27 or older. thats just my opinion.
There isn't a right or a wrong age to get married (unless your like 15 but thats kinda like a 'duh' thing). The more important question is who? How long have you been with the guy, how will it change your life plans? My sister got married when she was 23 but she'd been with the guy since she was 16. Marriage is a beautiful thing just make sure its with the right guy before you take that dive
