I got married when I was 18. I'm turning 19 in a 2 weeks. My husband is 23 years old. I still get questions on why I got married early and it's because I love him, I was with him for 4 years, I lived with him for 2 years and everything was j ust perfect. We were practically married except for the no sex rule we had made. Some people believe we got married because I got pregnant (not true because I got pregnant about a month after the wedding) and some think I'm mental.
What are your opinions on getting married early?

It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. It used to be very common to get married at that age. There is nothing wrong with it. One reason the age of marriage is increasing is because it's become a lot more common to delay marriage to get more education, get better jobs, etc. There is nothing saying that everyone has to go that route.
You are already married. In many ways you are way ahead in your life compared to people who delay it. Marriage, having kids, being on your own and responsible for you own life cause you to mature and grow rapidly. By the time you are 25 you'll have a lot of life experiences that many people don't get until they are 30 or 35.0

I got married when I was 21 been dating a couple years before. We are still married 20+ years later. Out of all my friends me and my husband are the only ones still married to the original partner. My parents have been married since 1955. My husbands parents have been married since 1949. It's easy to get married, staying married is a different challenge. We were lucky enough to be able to work with or around each other most of our careers. He is in law enforcement and I was a corner then med student then mortician now funeral home owner. So when he would go on a job , I didn't mind I had my own thing to do. But 2 thing we do that I have never seen any other couples do.1 we do not share bank accounts. We have never fought over money. His is his mine is mine. The bills are our to share. 2nd we have separate bedrooms. We have no children so sex is doable anytime, anywhere. He can go to bed and fart and snore I don't care, I have my own room where I can read and starfish out all over the bed. And I'm on call 24/7 if I have to go get a body at 2:00 in morning from hospital not going wake him. And it's very nice to have separate rooms to sleep in when you're super pissed off at each other.0
