Why the rush, after marriage you have forever to be together. Rather make something of your life first and pray, pray ,pray

your emotion is really not mature and for your own good you better wait and don't marry too soon anybody. you are not mature and you can think your love is sooo big but it is only temporarily and can change very soon, believe me.. and after few months you would regret such decision but it would be too late. better stop think and give this feeling to mature.

I was 24 and just got out of the Army. She was 14 and going on 15. She chased all the girls away that came over to my apartment.
We waited for 3 years. We have been married now for over 29 Years and are both saved.

Do you wish to be married now because your love for him is so intense, or are you merely impatient? If you're impatient, that's no reason to marry in the eyes of god. If your love is intense, again, why the rush -- are you in fear it won't be as intense 3 years, 5 years, 10 years from now? Again, no reason to marry in the eyes of god.

first I'd like to say congrats on people whom married young & it lasting. 2nd you need to wait at least 3 yrs. Why are you dating a guy over the age anyhow? Don't you relize even though you say you "love "him he is still liable to be charged& go to jail for underage?even if nothing actually happens,your parents can still charge him. 3rd. if it is meant to be by God then waiting will not hurt.

i think the legal age for an adult in this country is 18. You have some years ahead of you yet, you should finish high school first.

Not a good idea. Too much of an age gap! It would be better to date more in your age group. Life is short enough, take your time and listen to others who did the thing you want to do. How happy are they? Do a little research to be better informed.

Fifteen is so young. Why do you want to grow up so quickly? You only have a few years left to be a kid and the rest of your life to be a grown up. Why don't you relax and enjoy this time while you have it? It won't hurt your boyfriend to wait for you. To the contrary it could be an opportunity for him to develop in character. I know being patient can be hard when your young but try to remember that you will never get these years back again.

15 is a little young, to be thinking about getting married. I like what the other guy said that they waited 3 years. I married 2 x and both were older than me, but they are both passed away. I had both good marriages, ones that God picked out for me. I haven't regreted it, but miss them both.

It wouldn't be unbiblical. My grandparents married when she was 15 and he was 30. They were married for 40 years, and very much in love until he died. Legally, it depends on where you live. For example, I live in Texas, and you have to be 14 to get married here, if your parents consent. Other places are different. But it's possible, if you're both very sure that's what you want, and that you can devote your lives to each other and to God.
