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.

If you're willing to face the consequences, then yes. I know a lot of people say violence is never the answer, but in truth it sometimes is. If you really want somebody to leave you alone, then fight. If you win, it shows that you're dominant over that person and hopefully he/she will leave you alone.

Honestly, I think it's better to get your feelings out sooner rather than later- maybe ask him why he's being mean to you... Though, don't say it in such a way that annoys boys... If you know what I mean.

Hello. Just call me Carrots if you don't know me already. :p Anyway, I'm hoping I'll be able to make a little forum post on making friends and making sure the friendships last. ^-^ ••• I hope this helps. ••• Making friends// Making friends can be dauntless, especially if you moved schools or to a different place which is simply far away from your old friends. I mean, it's fine to keep in contact with your old friends ##-####, text, letters etc), but you do have to consider it'll be better if you can make more friends at your new location- seriously, it'll help! How to make friends// • Get talking with people- join in people's conversations; try to be a little more social- it'll be easier to make friends if you're social around people. • Have a look around- are there any clubs or events that catch your interest- maybe a drama class or art club? If you join these type of things, you're more likely to meet people who have similar interests to you. :3 • Do act yourself. That means not to be so loud that people take you in the wrong way- but don't be too quiet either- otherwise people won't notice you! • Pay attention to people when they're speaking- they'll appreciate it if you just listen to what they say and you can have your say too! • Hang out with one or two people that you already know- who knows, you might be introduced to their friends too. • Do make an effort! c: [posting more tomorrow- I'm sorry that this is absolutely terrible]
