Dear Dish-it: I'm Thinking Marriage

Dear Dish-it,


I have a boyfriend who is talking about getting married. I'm only 12 and he told me he wants to get married when I turn 18. He'll be 21 then ... do you think it's a bad idea? I mean, to get married at the age of 18? Some of my friends say it's bad cause I need to go to college and some say it would be good cause I'd be happy. I don't know what to choose ... yes or no?

Dear AG,


Yikes! In my opinion, it's a little too soon - and you're a little too young - to be talking about marriage (seriously, I mean. Of course it's OK to TALK about it, but it's too early to be PLANNING anything just yet). Why rush into marriage (which is a huge, lifetime commitment)? Your friends are right - what about college? What about all the things both of you want to do?


What if things don’t work out and you’re divorced by 19? People even mocked Drew Barrymore for that! If I were you, I'd hold off on the wedding plans. Just enjoy being with him for now and, if you both still feel the same way when the time comes (like in a decade or so), then tie the knot. If it’s meant to be, it can wait. Like ... until it’s legal in all 50 states.

A perfect friend is one who respects your feelings and doesn't make fun of them but helps you feel better, who can drive you only slightly insane, and who will try to save you from embarrassing situations by making you see the funny side. :) :D

A perfect friend is one who is always there for you not minding how many times you chase them away. They are people who you can rely on solely because they have proved to be those you can trust.  They are also those you can call partners in crime. They are not judgemental . They are those who can die for you if the need arise.

He's respectful, loyal, and his hugs are the best ever(he's like a foot and 4 inches taller than me). the dilemma is, he'stwentyandI'mfifteenturningsixteensoon.... I'm not gonna even ask about dating him until i'm sixteen but I've called him in total anxiety attack crying my eyes out and he calmed me down and made me laugh, and I invited him to come see a choir performance so he spent the day with me... My mom ships us... but I'm a little worried because of the age difference  and experience difference and just, I don't want to miss the chance of being with him because of it. ​  any advice??? It's really nice that your mother supports it, that always helps!! I'm glad that your family enjoys his company as well. Being 16 while he's 20 is alright. It's a slight odd age gap. But, I think as long as you both are ready, it's alright. Make sure you're mature and safe with your choices though. Personally, I think you should wait until you're closer to at least, 17. But, as long as you two are smart about what you're doing, it should be alright when it come around to it.

He doesn't deserve you. But it's totally okay if you want to play it safe and not go up to him. You do you. :3
