I'm engaged to the love of my life, and we talked about marriage a lot before he proposed. The only problem is that I'm 18 and he's 21. This shouldn't be a problem, and I know I'm going to get married to him no matter what, but I'm curious of others opinions.

I think it depends on your culture. Back when my parents were growing up they would all get married by the time they were 18-20 and almost none of them got divorced (the only ones that did like 1/1000 got divorced because someone cheated or was abused).
Nowadays in my culture people are getting married in their late 20's or 30 and the divorce is waaaaaaaaaaaaay higher. I think people are generally unhappier today than the were in past, back in the day they made it work and to me it seemed in general that men were happier and abusive relationships were almost non-existent.
So it really depends on who you are, your family values and the environment you grew up in.2
