Oh my, do not get married just to be able to live together! How long have you been dating? It's so early in life, anything can happen and you do not want to jump into anything. I would suggest finding a female roommate or use dorms. Just focus on school, obviously you said your not ready for marriage, so forget that. Your bf will be on campus also, so you two can always meet up often. I understand as my parents would of felt the same way, and I would probably feel that way with my kids. Especially since you are still young and this is your first relationship, do not rush it.

Also, if you haven't, really take a long time researching your field, schools and costs. Looking into any financing options and how that will work out financially. Make sure your field will be worth the high cost of education. Is that the only school you can consider? Any other options out there that may be cheaper? This is something to not just pick and choose but really research and take time on deciding. Make sure neither of you are choosing this school just to stay together.

Good luck!

YOU FIRST !! Get your education First...

(BTW: Odd are you will not be GF/BF by the time prom rolls around, and even smaller chance when your graduate in Year and half)

Good points.

Every, and I mean every person that I know who stayed with their HS school sweetheart through college, and did not date anyone else regretted it. Now, if it really is meant to be it is meant to be.

I married my HS sweetheart but we went to different colleges and dated other people. Heck, I even had several very serious relationships and three other marriage proposals after he proposed to me our senior year of HS.

When we got back together, at age 25, we knew that it was for life. So far we have been married for close to 40 years. Would we still be married if we married at age 18? I really, really doubt it.
