Congratulations! That is pretty young, but I know lots of people who were married that young and are really happy. My cousin was married right out of high school and is a happy mother of 4 now. As long as they are committed to each other they will be fine. See GoodWeed's advice in this thread.

Congrats! DW and I started dating when I was 19 and she was 21, got married when I was 22 and she was 24. 16 years together, 13 of them married as of last March 20th. Young marriages don't mean failure, you just have to work at it! That and of course the sooner BF learns 'yes ma'am' the better off he will be! LOL.

Dawn-- BF has been staying with us when he is home on leave,he already calls me "mama" and we've had some pretty sincere chats and he knows how I feel. I just want DD to finish college.
Mav-- He's a Texas boy so he already knows the 'yes ma'am'.

nothing wrong with a little kimchi and a long engagement, mikki.

at their age and in their circumstances (a niagara falls of emotions and hormones, threatened by a big seperation), they're looking for something to hold on to. let them have that, but impress upon them that they thought differently about things just 4 years ago, so how might they think 4 years from now.
a long engagement is good to prove the commitment and sincerity of their relationship.
The next time someone asks what you did this past weekend, squint really hard and say, "Why, what did you hear?"
