Words Of Encouragement.For the first time since my boyfriend joined, I had a serious conversation with someone about our relationship and wasn't told I was "Too young to know what love is" or "Shouldn't even be thinking about getting married"
It was nice to hear for once that there is all the possibility in the world of us making it to forever. I just need to say this: I am 16 years old. I am a senior in a public high school, with well over 1000 other students, half of them males who would more than happily let me cheat with them. I am involved in band and travel, sometimes overnight, with my own group of 180 kids, not to mention the ones I meet else where. I work at a resturaunt where I constantly meet new and pretty exciting people. The thought of cheating has never crossed my mind. I am 16 and hopelessly in love with a man in the US Army. So no, I'm not too young to know what love is, and I'm not too young to think about getting married. When someone changes your life the way my man has, why would I WANT to leave him?
I just get sick of the negativity I am surrounded by everyday. As if getting married at 18 is going to end my life. As if loving a man I see once every few months is going to kill me. He's worth it. He is doing it for me and for our future together. I just wish people could understand that, before I punch them in the neck.
