I am in a serious relationship and I'm young. I'm 16, he's 18. We have "explored" each other but were both planning on waiting till marriage to have sex. We talk about marrying each other often now which is weird but I like it because I want to spend the rest of my life with him. But I'm sooo young and so is he. we wouldn't actually get married till I turn 18 because I want to graduate high school and begin college.
so basically I'm asking do soul mates or true love exist?
is it normal to be in love and ready to settle down before I'm out of high school?
should I be scared of him just wanting to marry him for sex?

I would slow down. You don't need to marry someone to let them know you love them. I would just stay in the relationship and at least hold off on marriage for a couple years. Basically "see" what it would be like to be married. What I mean is if you can handle spending 3 + years with him then you should be able to handle marriage. Especially in the prime of your life. You're young and a lot is going to change in the next couple years. I am only saying this because you are 16. I'm not saying you don't love him, just wait for marriage there are other ways to say you love him. If you both are faithful and trust each other there should be no problem waiting a couple years. Use promise rings if you have to satisfy that marriage feeling.1
