I'm 17 and about to turn 18 in 94 days. My boyfriend is 20 and we've been together for two and a half years. We were texting each other one day and he asked me "can we get eloped" I said yes because I know he is sincere about it and he's been bugging me about it before our second year anniversary. I am kind of excited, nervous and worried at the same time. Should we take premarital counseling before we say the vows or figure it out ourselves?

Elope (definition) : run away secretly in order to get married, especially without parental consent. at 18 you don't need parental consent. I honestly believe marriage at that age is too early, you still don't know who you really are or what you really want out of life, you haven't had the time to figure it out. in my opinion it's best to wait and mature a little more, go to college, etc.. but if you do decide to get married, don't worry about eloping, you'llbe 18 andyour parents can't say or do a thing about it at that point. premarital counseling would really take away the idea of eloping, b/c it's no longer a secret, but yes it woudl be a good idea if you decide that'swhat you realy want.0
