I got married at 20 and don't think I settled at all. I was ready to marry him less than 2 weeks after we met. 13 years later, we're still mostly happy and still in love.

You phrased this way better than I did but yes this is what I imagine most young couples feel if they make it ..no we didnt settle we fought our asses off then realized no one could be fucked up to understand us as each other lol

Quoting LEGENDARY JAS ♥:" I fully agree. I became a parent and a wife at 19, definitely wasn't ready for it."


I'm raising Nora completely differently than the other girls and it's not just because I've had experience. My whole mindset has changed. I thought I was mature at 18 but I was nowhere near it. I may have been a bit more mature than my peers but not by much. I was still a selfish know-it-all teenager.

I dont thnk i did. my and my hubby had problems early on as we got pregnant when we were quite young. or what i consider young(21) and that kinda caused problems. we worked it out though and eventually got engaged approx 6 years after dating and then we were engaged for 2 full years before we got married. We def didnt rush it, I turned 26 like 2 weeks after my wedding.

Marriage didnt limit me at all. I dont feel like I settled, i feel like I am lucky I found someone who is everything I ever wanted and vice versa. Not a day goes by that I dont think about how wonderful our situation is. (Married at 19, 6 year anniversary is in june)

I don't think so at all and I wouldn't trade it for the world..
I'm not married but i've been in a long term relationship for almost 5 years.. I got my beautiful son out of it and i wouldn't have it any other way.



A lot of people ask me if I miss being single to be honest i've been with my boyfriend for so long idek HOW to be single lmfao. Going out on dates and mingling with different guys would be so out of place, and awkward for me hahaha.

I feel exactly the same way. Only I still haven't gone back to school like I want.

:!: This, exactly. We were 1 month in when I got pregnant and now it's just been babies and marriage. No real time to ourselves to be alone and experience life just as a pair.

The word biology just makes me shudder lol. There are some good schools in Wisconsin....I wouldve went to Marquette if they didnt give me such a hard time with the admissions process.

Hah, thank you! Just since last month. Unfortunately the marriage didn't start off well at all. I knew we'd have our problems and challenges, but I was hoping to have at least a few weeks of wedded bliss. :/
