We have been happily married for a few months now in a beautiful home

My sister invited me to her church one Sunday when I was 16. I didn't think anything of it but the pastors son sat in front of me and he looked a little younger than me. I wasn't really attracted to him or anything. He was just another person sitting there basically. Well, I went back to the church a few times and from a distance he started developing a crush on me. We had never really talked and Wed. March 5, 2003 his best friend "Micah" came up to me after church and he said that "Benjamin" (the pastors son) wanted to know if I would go to the movies with him and go out with him. I didn't know him at all so I almost said no but my two friends Brooke and Destiny were standing there saying "say yes!" so I said I'd give him a try. We wound up going to the movies and we hardly watched the movie. I really started to like him and we just laughed and lauged all night. I felt like I could talk to him forever. He was so easy going and easy to talk to. We talked all the time on the phone and I eventally met his family and he met mine. We told each other we loved each other about 2 and a half months later. We emailed, IMed and continued to see each other at church. He was only 15 by the way so I didn't expect us to get serious but we did. Six months into the relationship we went on vacation with his parents to Gatlinburg, TN and we had the best time. On our first Christmas (10 months into the relationship) we gave each other promise rings. On June 18, 2005, 2 years and 4 months into the relationship, Ben proposed with a half carat 3 diamond ring. We were 17 and 18 at the time. On March 25, 2006 we had our wedding and got married. He has a great job making over $44,000.00 a year so I don't have to work. When we got married he was 18 and I was 19. It felt right. Everyone was saying "oh you're so young, you're going to change so much. Don't you want to date around as you get into your twenties?" and I would always say no. I only see Ben in my future. We have been happily married for a few months now in a beautiful home with our 3 dogs and 2 cats. (we both REALLY love animals!)and it just feels like a better stage of dating. We hardly ever fight and we get along fine. Everyone says that your first year of marriage is the hardest because you're getting used to your spouse but I love everything about him. Nothing he does really upsets me that much. So don't ever let anyone tell you that you're too young to get married. If you really love someone, then go with your heart.
