Soo. Me and my boyfriend (I am 17 and he is 18) have been dating for quite a while now. We seriously feel that we are made for each other and have expressed to one another that we would like to get married in the future. The thing is his aim is to be a pilot (4 year college) and mine is to be a chef (2 years). He says he can't wait 4 years and asked me what I thought about waiting just 2, well to me I love the idea but I don't want things to get complicated to the point where he can't fulfill his dreams. I told him that but he said that wouldn't happen. I truly love him and he adores me but I don't want my life to end up miserable because we got married at such a young age. What's your opinion?
Please give any advice you have to offer, I am willing to hear.

I hate to say it, but the chances of you making it to the other end of school together, married or not, is pretty low. That has nothing to do with either of you and everything to do with there is a lot more you both have to experience. If, later on (post school +2 years) you still want to get married, cool. Part of this is coming to terms with your own sexuality and preference and some of it is simply that you need to get school behind you and get some experience to have a balance perspective.
20 years later, no one, I repeat no one, who got married before age 22 is still together as of 38 (I got married at 27 and had the fourth oldest marriage at my high school reunion)0
