I'm Torn..any Advice?Hey ladies how is everyone?:)
Haven't posted a story in forever!!!
I'm 17 and a Junior in high school. I'll be 18 in July!! My boyfriend James is currently in Missouri for MOS training. We've been together for a little over a year and he's been gone for half of it. It's hard but I would say we're doing pretty good :).
Anywho... Here's what I need advice about. So when I graduate high school I want to go to college to be a nurse. It's what I wanted to do for as long as I can remember. I also want to be with James. We have always planned on getting married after I graduate. Young, I know but when you know, you know. We've been through a lot more than the average teenage couple and I hate being judged for wanting to marry young. Anyways I'm getting off track. So he's more than likely going to be stationed in California and I live in Oklahoma.. I really want to go to college wherever he gets stationed but we would have to get married as soon as I graduate and I would have to get moved out there as soon as possible so I could start school. Now here would be the down side to that.. It would probably be harder getting into a college out of state, it would probably be more expensive going in California, and there would be that chance that he could get deployed and I would be in a new place, new school without anyone I know. It would be terrifying being all alone. But the upside to things is that I could finally be with my marine. I can't wait to finally be with him and he would make moving away from all my family and friends worth it. It would so much easier to go to college here and get married later. But I don't really want to do it the easy way lol. I'm so torn.. I can't talk to my parents about it yet because it's still a while away and they would freak if they knew I was thinking about getting married already. But they were married at 18 and are still happily married so hopefully they won't be hypocrites.. It'll be hard leaving home but it'll all be worth it once I get a taste of actually getting to be with him. The few times that he has got to come home, my parents let him stay with us. They make him sleep in my brothers room but it was so nice having him here with me all the time. So we've kinda got a little glimpse of what it's like to live together. Should I take the easy way and stay home an go to school here but constantly be wish I was with James, OR take the risk of going to Cali and finally be happy and content with James? If anyone has been/is in this situation and if you have any advice I would appreciate all the help I can get lol..I know what I want but I'm not sure if it's the smartest choice.
Thanks for reading!!:)
