Getting Married too soon?

By NaseebSupport

About User: Male - Minnesota - 25


I have been in a relationship for the past 2 years and I have been perfectly happy for quite some time. About 6 months ago, she started to talk about accepting a job offer from another state which meant I would not be able to see her often. I love her and didn’t want to lose her so I asked her to marry me. She accepted and stayed back but now I am totally worried about the future. I want to be with her but I have never been in a committed relationship before her and the thought of getting married at 25 seems a bit frightening. My parents also think that I am too young to make a huge decision like this at such an age. Now I have no idea how to get out of this as my girlfriend refused a job offer which was a professional promotion. If I call it off, will she still be willing to go out with me till I can make a more stable decision. I don’t want her to break up with me but getting married under pressure doesn’t look so great either. I suggested that we keep the engagement a secret and don’t get married for another 2 years at least but she thinks it’s idiotic. Not only did she announce the engagement but she also wants to get married with a year. Is there any way out?

You should tell her that when you proposed you thought that you were like dreaming and didn't really mean it. Maybe she'll forgive you for being stupid and still want to be unmarried to you. If she's dumb enough not to take a nice promotion at 25 then she might be dumb enough to fall for this idea too. You seem like an impulsive guy. I say JUST DO IT!

Well thank god DRYM toned it down and held back his reaction "in respect of girls here" .. Cause if that's a controlled response .. than you should be banned by law to ever unleash ..

I can't believe you fell for the - Opportunity calls from another town so hurry up and tie me down - cause unless u're gonna put me in that white gown - there is chance that by sundown I'll be gone.

Psychological nudging .. promotion offer is always a good hook - as evident by your response .. On the bright side proactive women tend to make great spouse IMO ..so even though u got hustled, its still a good deal .. take it
