Engaged & Underage.

Eighteen years young. Dating a soldier in the U.S Army, that my life. I knew it wasn't going to be easy but as long as I had him it was all going to be well worth it. Seven years of the back and forth and we finally got it right this time. First loves to high school sweethearts, I never knew we were going to make it this far, but I am glad I made it with you. Now we are faced with a new challenge ahead.. Facing the world full of opinions about you and me. Yes we are 18 and in love. Taking the next step who would have ever thought it would feel so wrong? The consistent reminder that we are young.. But since when did your age determine how much you love someone? The consistent reminder we haven't 'experienced life'.. What exactly does that mean? Because I haven't went through something drastic doesn't mean my hearts not in it. Oh and how can I forget the ever so famous line 'You don't know what you want or who you are'.. How can you tell me I don't know what I want.. I made it through life this far making my own choices and I have been just fine. And I don't know who I em, what do you ever so mean? I'm a strong, beautiful, loyal, loving, and selfless individual what more do I need to know. Engaged but underage.. So who really cares that I'm not 21 or older I know that God has blessed me with a loving man that wants to spend the rest of his life with me, what more could a girl ask for? I mean yes it's not the idea situation but as long as we have each other we can make it through anything because I would trade diamond for dog tags any day!

Hey... I am Married at the age of 18 to a solider and I don't regret one bit of it. Yes, I get that a lot that I am too young to be married. But you cant tell your heart that when you love someone. I wish you the best in life and your relationship..

I absolutely love this girly. I catch myself having thought of getting proposed to and starting a family with my soldier, but quickly tell myself to stop because "I'm not old enough" these past couple of months have taught me so much. Thanks for sharing your story :) -19 and boyfriend is in basic training

You never know what he might have up his sleeve!! And I know exactly what you mean, I swear if my soldier wasnt in the army I would have never considered it. We talked about it before he left but never thought it would get this serious as him actually going through with what we talked about. Things change and so do plans! And no problem girl.

I love this! Stay strong girl I hope it all works out for you

thanks! and same to you love!

Beautiful. I hope for your sake everything works out. Try not to let people get you down. :-)

Thanks and I am trying my hardest for it not to get to me!
