We've been together for 8 months and I know, beyond a doubt that this is the man that I want to share my life with. I'm not being naive here either, I really, truly know that this is the real deal.
We're only 19, and we haven't gotten our lives settled yet, should we wait or go for it? Also, how should I start a conversation about it without seeming intimidating?..
I don't need to get married immediately, but I want to at least discuss it with him.

If he has already brought it up, then the ice is broken and you can easily bring it up again. I still agree with the others...wait, please wait to actually get married. Talk about it? Yes...definitely, but don't do it till you are both past 25. I have no doubt that you are past the infatuation stage; but people really do change ALLOT by the time they get to 30. Yes, I know that sounds so far away, but you will be there before you know it. I could count on BOTH hands the number of people who married young and now have out grown their spouse. They are either married and miserable or divorced (usually with kids). Many of then put off college for family and now are 40 and working for not much more than minimum wage and always the first to go in a layoff. It is a hand-to-mouth, miserable existence made worse when they see their old friends...who did go to college ...now working a well paying career, living comfortably while they have to choose between rent and getting their beater car fixed (again) and Christmas presents for their kids.
If it is love, it WILL last then next 6 or so years.0
