    My fiance proposed to me when he was 19, and it was on our year anniversary.... i am a little older than him at 24... but stranger things have happened in the world and if it is right for you then it will work...that is all there is to that!

    Age isnt really anything. My fiance is more mature than my previous long term boyfriend who was 29 when I was 20!!!! Your guy sounds very similar to mine, always been independent, works hard at two jobs and is also studying pretty much full time too..

    Our wedding is all booked and sorted for April 2011...and he has been fantastic about it all...very keen and interested in picking things, sharing decisions...

    He is way more mature than his 20 years of age, but then at the same time we are able to have a laugh and muck about too...

    Just wanted to share with you that age and time doesnt really matter if it works and is right!

    I say good luck to you, the only worry being as its long distance, you do not really know what it is like being with a long amount of time: i.e living with them? Maybe you could give this a try for a few months before the proposal...they always say you REALLY get to know someone and all their annoying habits when you live with them!!

    23

    I was 19 once

    Hi, I'm a guy, 26, been married for 7 years(with a 5 year old son).
    I got married at 19, was responsible, my wife who overall is a pretty good person is a couple of years older than me.

    Long story short I recommend you wait a few years, I certainly regret getting married. Not liest because I was so young but because I made what has turned out to be a poor choice of partner.

    Like I said my wife is a pretty good person, but with each passing day it's becoming more clear that we're totally different people. I ignored a lot of good advice that has left me in this possition(the best being "just wait").

    I recommend you wait until you're at least 23 before making the decision.

    Best regards and I hope everything turns out well for you.

    Sorry to hear your experience Dublin, but I don't think just cos you wait til your 23 everything will be fine. I know people who met at 40, got married and found they were different people at 43.

    If it works for someone then it works ... I don't think you can label age or anything

    Too true.

    The reason I said 23 is that by that age you're more likely to know who you are, instead of being lost in the person you're with.

    I agree - but if you are getting lost in the person that can also happen at any age. They key to any relationship is having your own time, space and interests so you always have something to bring back to the relationship.
