All I Want Is Love

From the time I was a little girl, I have wanted to get married and start a family.  I'm 20 years old, and I know that I am too young, and not at the point in my life where it would be fare to the baby for me to get pregnant and try to start a family. It's just hard because I feel like I've been waiting forever and I just don't want to wait any longer, but I just wish I could hurry up a few years to the point where it would be fare and acceptable to all for me to have what I've always wanted which is a husband, and children to love...Maybe it sounds a little immature to have that fairy tale mentality because I know that marriage and having a family is not a basket of roses, but it's always good to have hope right?  Any ideas, comments, suggestions, anything??  Thanks

I just get worried about what my family would say...

I honestly do not think that you should be focused on this right now at such a young age. I'm 21 and this is honesly the last thing on my mind. Relationships, marriage, and kids may seem like what you want but it is not easy. It looks like the ideal world from the outside but I'm sure on the inside most people are probably thinking to themselves that they should have waited for a better person to start a family with, or they should have stayed in school so that they can provide their family with a better life. Its good to have the mentality but I honestly think that it can be somewhat dangerous because you might end up trying to start a family with the next person you meet and they may end up being the wrong person. I know from experience because my ex tried to make me a wife.

You're at a perfect age - if you meet the right guy, that is. Otherwise no age is a good age to get married or start a family.
