Ok so me and my boyfriend has been together for a while now and was thinking about getting married the only problem is he's 18 and I'm 15 almost 16 and can't get married without parental consent and my mom agreed as long as he had a job but things changed her mind after a while for some little fight we had anyways I don't want to hear I'm too young or anything like that I just want to know how to convince her to say yes again?

Sixteen is a bit young by today's standards. I married at 18 last year to the guy I've been head over heels in love with since I was about 14, my parents (and his) wisely would never have consented for us to get married even if he were 18 and I was 16. Both of us are mature, but neither he or I were mature enough to be married at that age.
We just celebrated our first (of many) anniversary, I can tell you that even though he and I have been best friends since we were 5 and 6 years old. I thought I knew every thing there was to know about him, I'm still learning new things about him almost every day. This year has been challenging in many respects, things like establishing our own home, ourselves as a married couple, our order within both his and my families, attending college together, he just graduated with his Bachelors Degree moving to his Masters next year, I'll graduate with my Bachelors next spring then start on my Masters the next fall. Our plates are full, there are challenges as I expect there always will be with a different name on them as we progress along.
Is there anything that you want to do with your life? Besides becoming a young mother. Those are decisions that you need to figure out before you even consider saying "I do". If you intend on staying together as a couple in spite of your current age and maturity levels you should consider a structured "Courting Relationship" where there are predetermined boundaries, rules for being a couple all under the supervision of both sets of parents before you are even allowed to date unsupervised. (Some couples even do supervised dating after progressing through the courting period remain in the courting period until marriage.) If both of you cannot submit to a supervised relationship, I doubt that either of you are mature enough for marriage. Where you will be accountable to each other for absolutely everything!
