Pretty fucked up?
That she's marrying at nineteen? I don't think that's too bad.
Is she up the duff?
But yeah, 19!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Madness.
you are regarded as an adult.
What sort of mong would tie themselves down at 19? Not that I don't want to get married eventually - I really, really do - but surely there's too much to experience first which is incompatible with marriage. Mainly sleeping around.

i want to get married

An ex-friend of mine got engaged at 18, i think she gathered lots of experience in the years preceding that.
who you know is for you, then you probably don't want to sleep around anyway.
Why would being twentynine make you any surer about the relationship.
Change of priorities.
and for most people nineteen probbly is too young, but I'm sure there are some couples ready at that age that it works out for.
do not search "fucked up" in google images
it's unusal now, wasn't so much just a generation or two ago. besides it's still normal for some. like religious people.
there we're people getting 'engaged' at 15 or at least thats what they were announcing all over their msn names. In fact a supposably level headed guy who was in my year recently got his 14 year old girlfriend pregnant and now she's going to be crawling up the isle with him.
do you live?
you always post about some shite occurence to you
That's what I was thinking. "What, they're moving to Scotland?" It wasn't until you posted that I realised what he meant.
Apparently the dad (who's fifteen) proposed, but she said no as they weren't even going out or anything. They wouldn't have been able to get married for another two years anyway, so it kind of defies the point in it all. Nice gesture I suppose though, in a weird way.
But it was the result of a one night stand (from what I've gathered), so getting married seems a bit unrealistic and old fashioned.
am I normal for thinking it's sweet? Was this british kids? Because the painfully white kids I was at school with at 16 weren't even past holding hands/kissing and would constantly discuss some previous very mild sexual experience they had
I'd say about 50% of people had lost the virginity by age fourteen. And there were very, very few couples.
Everybody just had sex with anybody and there were many pregnancy rumours, which pretty much all resulted in abortions.
I'm surprised that she knew who the dad was (I'm assuming she was like every other kid I knew that got preggers and slept around a lot). However, it was kinda sweet that he proposed. My sister tells me that he's a right ned, so I don't know if it would have neccesarily been his decision. His parents might have pushed him into asking her.. Who knows.
I almost wish I went to school in scotland, you can imagine being with lots of children for so long would get unbearable, although I think I'm projecting mature thoughts onto these kids when it was just the actions that were 'mature'.
I HATED school and the people in it. But I don't think it'd have made too much of a differance had I went to one in another area of the country.
although I suppose it hasn't given you a chance to find the right person? No, I can't see the fault in it.
i would have happily got married at 19. If finances and geography would have allowed it to go well.
Although I'm not nineteen until January, so uh... Yeah.
and it's still not working
that this guy at my office, who i reckon is about 22-23, is married with 3 kids (the eldest is 5 or 6 I think). Still, he seems quite dull so i doubt he's missing out on any crazy single-person adventures, and he's probably very happy.
i think he's just not very bright though tbh
maybe if he was single he'd be less boring.
(I shouldn't be mean about him, he seems like a nice guy, i'm sorry)
you never know..
for two people who are still 18
But, speaking personally, at 26 I'm almost an entirely different person to who I was at 19 and, bar 2 friends who I met at about that age, there's nobody I used to be friends with then that I'm friends with now. I find it completely inconceivable that if I'd married someone then it'd be someone who I still wanted to be with now.
At the same time, it could be she's different to me. But, to sum up in cliche, this'll work out fine if they grow together and terribly if they grow apart. I suspect the latter is sadly more likely.
you're cheerful and optimistic this morning
I'm allowed to be miserable. :p
you mean "more stupid than me", then yes, I agree, she is different to you.
staring at you expectantly for the next several weeks/months?
If I met the "right" person then I'd be open to the idea. I don't think doing it before now would've been such a good idea though. 18/19 seems very young and maybe people really do know what they want at that age, but it will surely be very rare.
How soon is soon? Are you going to do some super-romantic way of proposing?
It didn't last.
this one lasted about 2 weeks, then she dumped him.
Which was good as he was a complete twattard!
I love my girlfriend dearly and having been with her for nearly 2 years, I was delighted to move in with her. Butr marriage definitely won't be on the cards unless we've managed to live with eachother and still feel the same way a few years down the line.
Its such an archaic institution.
Still I'd get married if I still get a dowry.
They could just hold a senance.
..to think they can be in a stable relationship without compromise. Apparently my mum didn't really understand this when she was my age and she married at 20. Pretty weird.
u'll look good by comparison when they get divorced in a year.
I reckon you just know whether you want to marry someone or not regardless when you meet them, if it is a mistake then so be it, you cant make decisions based upon what your unknown future self might want as long as it seems right at the time
it was quite frankly hilarious
or is she still 15
he was a fair bit older which made the whole thing even weirder. she's my age and i had completely forgotten this, but i'll be sure to bring it up next time i see her!
"Yeah big lols"
Are you crying tears of laughter, or are you putting on a smile, but are crying inside?
because the idea of people younger than me getting married is pretty scary.
we're 24 now and getting married next July- it's awesome. Just a matter of how good your relationship is.
...I let him play without moaning and he brings me tea in the morning. Works for us!
who got married right after high school graduation, so they were 18 at the time.
also, my boyfriend's friend just got married in june. he and his wife are only 21, and are already expecting a baby. to each his own, i suppose, but aren't your early 20's the perfect time to travel, finish school, and generally figure out what the hell you want to ultimately do with your life?
