Don't do it. People mature and change so much from their teen years til their mid 20's, and for some it takes even longer. The person you're in love with when you're 17 is not going to be the same person 8 or 10 years later. I don't think kids should rush growing up. They have the rest of their lives to get married and start a family.

I think absolutely not. I remeber being in high school and thinking that I was in love and that we would be together forever.... It very rarely works that way. When you do get married that young, most couples end up divorced with a couple of kids, pretending that they are 18 again.

I think people should be in late twenties before they consider getting married. I dont doubt that people in HS are in love. But give yourself some time to live your life before you get married. If you dont wait until you both are ready and mature enough, you will end up feeling like you are tied down or in a cage instead of with the love of your life. You cant get your youth back. I know you want to be an adult. I thought by the time I graduated HS that I was all grown up... Thats just funny to me now.

The way I see it as long as they finish school an do it for the right reasons insted of the wrong then let them be we all make mistakes but that's what makes us today if they love each other an wanna do this then when the times right do it but don't let what you think is a mistake be there's we all live an learn an the way I see it its part of living. Whats meant to be will be!!!

Sounds like Stacey needs to mind her own business. Maybe she should go to rehab and worry about getting off pills. Just because "Stacey" has been in many relationships and still goes with men while married, seems she would worry more about herself. It doesn't take much to figure out who you are, especially when you talk about this subject at work. I would not want you around my kids and sure can't understand why the man you are married to tolerates you being around his. Also the one you are speaking of being engaged is more mature at the age of 17 than you will ever be. Seems like you are jealous because you will never have real love and not all teens who got or get engaged while in high school end up a failure such as yourself. You have nobody fooled you are as phony as they come.

Are you serious? LoL, I don't even know what to say. I work from home with my husband and 2 cousins, and I'm pretty sure you are none of those people. I have never been on drugs, and my husband doesn't have any kids. And I certainly was not engaged or married in high school nor do I cheat on my husband. It's funny you would call me immature considering the things you said to me while assuming I was someone you know. Goodness, I hope and pray I don't know you.

And I still stand by my opinion that no teenager is mature enough for marriage. The original poster specifically asked for opinions, and I'm simply stating mine. I'm not expecting everyone to agree with me.

i agree with ya'll. don't do it. i got engaged my senior year and things went downhill from there. cheating, hurtful words, fighting and breaking up constantly... finally just ended it. i know you can be in love in highschool, but its better to just wait until you are both mature and not blinded by hormones and first love.

how the hell did this thread become about stacey? maybe because you people are so jealous of her that you have to keep her name on the tip of everyones tongue. Stacey sweetheart you have done so well with your self that people just can't get over it. They constantly want to put you down to make their sad lives seem more productive.I mean common people everyone knows she has great style, she tans like noone buisness, her hair and makeup always looks great, plus she has a personality like noones buisness. Its pretty apparent that the people that are trash talkin are the ones on her bad sad, she had either popped you in the mouth, or just down right put you in your place. There is a reason your saying nonsense on here, because you know you don't have the gaul to say it to her face. Same goes for Cheryl noone messes with her in person because you know right where you will end up, the webbs don't mess around, thats a tight family, you mess with one you mess with all, including me! Keep Stacey and the rest of her family out of your mouth and out of your mind, maybe then you won't have so many "problems". FYI--- since you dislike someone or think badly of them, then the best thing to do is stay away from then wouldn't you think? Truth hurts but worry about your self and your family because I'm pretty much positive that they aren't the poster children for perfect ehhh?

I married my highschool sweetheart. We have been together since 89 and married for 16 years. I dont think you have to be in ten different relationships to know you love just one. I think that people mature at different ages depending on their back ground and the things they have experienced in life. Having our own children I can also agree with Stacey.

I got married my senior year in high school. My husband and I have been married 11 years and 1 month. It doesn't have to do with age but maturity. Some women and men in their thirties should not get married. You have to go into a marriage making it work. My husband and I have our fair share of disagreements and arguments. Sometimes I feel like giving up, but that's not an option. Because I don't let that be an option.
