I'm 18, a senior in high school, my boyfriend of 10 months is 30, divorced and father of 2 kids. I moved in with him about 6 months ago. He currently supports me financially and is willing to pay for my college tuition. I love him and I know that he loves me. Sometimes I feel like I'm already married to him..and HELLO I am still in high school!! Am I being crazy?
Alright, assess your life. What do you want to do? Do you want to be married and a stay at home mom before you get your chance to go out and see the world. Do you really love him? You are half his age.
Ok. Now, realize this. If you break up while going to college, you are screwed. If possible move back in with your parents. If he loves you, he will be able to wait for you. If not then you've spared yourself betrayal. A man who would date someone half his own age, that is rather shady.
Girl you need to finish highschool, finish college, and make something of yourself before marrying a man. Your dreams matter. Achieve them. Because I don't want to hear about another girl who didn't achieve what she wanted to do, and just let some man take care of her.
As strange as the age difference is, you may have found something wonderful. But this is not the time to think of marraige. Do not become dependent on him. I really warn you of this.
I think it is great that you have found the man you love, but as he said, are oyu really ready to settle down? You haven't even lived yet really, you need to complete college and get a steady path in life, and THEN think about settling down, don't you think?
I've agreed with you all. I will say that I have a friend who all she wants to do it is get married and have babies. If that's you, then you are doing the right thing. Also remember your age, and what may lie ahead of you!
