I have a girlfriend and I am very happy with her. She isn't perfect, but she is exactly the kind of girl I have always been looking for. We have only been together for 3 months but we have known each other for over a year as friends. I definitely see myself with her as my future wife. She talks about a future with me, and her parents love me. They even call me their future son in law. They expect us to eventually end up getting married.
My one worry is an important one and it's the financial part of it. I work as security in a middle school making $10.15 an hour so I have to find I high paying job. Also, I am in a community college and my financial aid is going to run out so it will be hard to finish. I am studying computer systems tech.Even if I do, how far can a certificate from community college get me?
I'm worried about the financial stability. What should I do? Can I get I high paying job in my situation? I'm 25 and my girlfriend is 18 and turning 19 in September. I want to get married in about a year. Advice please?

While I'm all for you marrying her because that's cute and all, I'd advise you to wait at least two years. Friends don't know each other as well as lovers do and after just three months of dating, you have yet to find all those little annoying quirks in the other person. I'd wait till you find those out AND get through at least three huge arguments before popping the question. You need to make sure you're actually compatible outside of "the honeymoon" phase. Also, you're still young, and so is she. At 18, almost 19 (30 more days :D) myself, I am in a committed 5 year relationship and I am no where near ready to get married. My boyfriend and I talk about marriage and really do plan to do so. But we want to get through college first. You're older than she is, I see, but you have to understand that she's in a different stage in life than you are. At at least 25, you are ready to settle down, she may like the idea, but not be ready for it quite yet. Wait a little while before asking her. Best of luck to you :)0
