Engaged at 19

“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for them in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity.”         1 Timothy 4:12

Yes, my fiancé and I are nineteen years old, and this Friday evening my dearest love proposed to me after he took me on a picnic by the river. I am truly excited and ever so blessed to be engaged to the most amazing man alive. There isn’t a soul on this beautiful Earth like him. Our plan in to be married in early August.

This engagement is a huge leap of faith for us. We have done nothing but pray about it for months and months, seek advising from one of our pastors, and budget, budget, budget! The two of us also went to our parents for advice, mine who support it fully, and my love’s who are a little less excited.

So why did we decide to go ahead and get married after I finish my first year of college and right before my fiancé starts his? Because we love each other. We are ready to promise our eternal love for each other in an everlasting vow before God. We don’t want to be across the state from one another at two separate universities. We want to experience life together young. Life is too short, we want forever together.

It will be hard, yes. It will be challenging knowing there are people, and a father, who don’t support our decision to wed so young, but our love is strong and our faith in God is stronger. I can’t wait to begin this journey through life with my best friend at my side.

If you have any advice for us, please feel free to share.

  1. I got married at 18 and I don’t have a single regret!! Congrats on the engagement and getting married soon! Enjoy life and your husband to be! Always remember to keep God first and everything will always work out!

    Blessings!!! 😀

  2. Just live out your verse, and all things will fall into perfect place. Just continue to love each other with the unselfish love that you have been. Keep God in all you do, and He will direct your paths. I got married at 19, and I would not change a thing. God blessed us with 4 amazing children. You will always hear negative things, but just filter out the bad and keep the good. A love like you have with Will is pure, real, and beautiful. When God says YES, no one (even parents) cannot say NO. God will bless you and Will beyond your wildest dreams, if you just believe that He will.

  3. May God bless you and bring you happiness all the days of your lives.

  4. Congrats on your impending nuptials. Always remember you must live your life for you. You both prayed and if this was the response, that’s what matters
