    I married at 25 and although my husband

    and I were together since I was 17. We still thought it would be best if we waited to marry and I figured 25 was old enough. Now, I'm realizing that 25 was probably too young. As, I hadn't been with anyone besides him since 17. I feel like I should have experienced more dating...

    I turned 18 in basic training

    and went back home on leave to marry my high school girlfriend. We were both too young and immature to be married...and parents.

    Looking For Something

    I married because I was looking for something... my best friend tried to talk me out of it but I was too stubborn for my own good. Not to worry, he's long broke me of that habit. I met him at 18 just after my grandfather passed and we were married when I was 19. I wasn't ready...
