My problem is a simple one that I'm sure is common, but I can't see any easy solution, I'm just 18, and I live with my girlfriend, of about 5 years, 18 itself is a young age to leave home, but she's all into the whole "Grown Up" thing she wants to get engaged and married like soon, I know there is no law against it at 18, but I am so unsure about it, see the thing is I know love is a strong word, but it genuinely is there, but even still I'm not sure about any of the Marriage, Kids ect ect stuff, and we both have no one else other than each other.
Now by this point I can understand the people going just another chav and his slag, liveing off benifits, none of this is true, I earn just under £37,000 a year (Rugby Player) and she's at uni studying some form of Science, basically were not stupid kids, the thing is I don't want to reject her and for her to get the wrong idea, without her my life is nothing, so I am really really stuck, she knows how I feel about her, but I don't know how to break it to hewr that "Im still a kid, don't wanna grow up yet" don't know what else I can say about it, just ANY advice from people that have had anthing like this.

Tell her marriage is forever and if you are planning on being together forever marriage can wait. Tell her you want to just enjoy this part of your lives together. Everyone "can't wait to get married" "can't wait to have kids" Nobody can wait to do anything and at the end of their life they realize they spent their entire life waiting for what was to come and not living in the moment. Right now you guys need to enjoy living together and just being together. One day she will look back and she will miss this time in your guys's lives together. It's all important and you guys should take it slow, day by day.
And the whole kid thing, wait til after you're like 25. Takes trips, go on dates, enjoy not having to find a babysitter for a few years. And even after you're married enjoy your new wife before having kids. Make sure you get plenty of "us" time before taking big steps.0
