Love My Airman With All My Heart

I am madly in love with my man and believe that he is the one. I used to want to wait to get married until after I graduated from college. I thought it would be best if I started my career before settling down and starting a family of my own. I'm not sure what to think anymore. Having a boyfriend in the military is much different than being in a relationship with a civilian. The military has many benefits for young married couples so that they can get on their feet and I would actually be able to be by my man's side on a day to day basis. It's so hard being apart. I know I can handle it but I'd much rather be able to wake up in my love's arms each morning. I love him with all my heart and he makes me so happy. I just don't know how I will know if I'm ready or not. I don't want to live with any regrets down the road. So how young is too young?! Any advice would be greatly appreciated :)

I don't believe age has anything to do with it. If you are truly in love and believe you are prepared then I'd say go for it. If you recall, I was planning on being married after our first year of college, regardless of finances or any other situation. Love is irrational and should get your full attention.

I think its different for each person. I was married very young and everyday i still fall more in the love with my husband than the day before. The thing is how far are you willing to go if you get married to stay married. Because once you vow to marry this man it means forever. Not just a day week month year. You have to be willing to give everything and expect nothing. You have to be able to be there in sickness and in health. Also you have to think if he was away for a very long time would you still love him like the day you met him. As we grow we either grow towards each other or away and in this day and age its hard. When almost all the marriages are failing around you. You have to be strong and not let that affect your marriage because it can without you even knowiing it. You have to be willing to be there in sickness and health rich or poor and be ready to go get help with your marriage if stuff happens that you never thought possible. Because at the end of the day we are all human and anything can happen even if you didn't think it could. If your ready and willing for all that and more than by all means go anf get married. But if your not. I would say wait until you know in your heart of all hearts that you are.x
