Help Please, I Need Some Serious Advice.I'll try to make our story short. Marcus and I began dating over two years ago, while he was a senior in school and I was a sophomore. He enlisted January of last year, and left for boot camp in June. We have since been through two break-ups, once before he enlisted and then right before he left. I attended his graduation as we realized breaking up because of the Navy was absurd, and we've been in a tentative relationship since.
Marriage is a topic we have both discussed and thought about extensively. I know he's the man I'm going to marry, and he has never treated me poorly before. Now, I'm met with a difficult decision. I'm finishing my senior year of high school, having already applied to colleges in state. He's in Connecticut with submarine schooling until August of this year, and won't find out where his next duty station will be until mid-July.
I had planned to attend a university here, in Florida, for a year, until he was at his next station. Then, I would transfer schools and move out to where Marcus is, and we'd be married.
He's suggesting that I put off schooling for a year, and move out with him sooner, because I won't have the obligation of college keeping me here. I would love to take that route, but I'm hesitating, because this means I'm putting off my schooling for a year. I'd be working full time, saving up money, which would be good, but at the same time, I don't want to run the risk of putting off school.
I love him so much. I want to make the right decision. Can any of you offer me advice? Were you ever in this sort of situation? What did you do?
