We want to start our family I know my path. But people still say 18 is to young? I personally don't think it is but others of is it?

I was 20 when I got pregnant and it was hard. Much harder than I thought it would be. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Also, being so young and having a child puts a strain on a relationship and since both u and ur fiancée are so young you aren't who you are going to be yet. I think it would be better to wait until u r both a bit older and possibly more financially secure and have had a longer relationship before bringing a child into it

Personally even 26 was "too young" for me. Its where you are personally that matters. That being said, talk to a lot of moms about what its really like to have a baby. And I mean A LOT of moms. do your homework. Then if you still decide you are ready…you are ready!! :D

I got pregnant at 18 and I'm now 19 and I think I was ready for it but I'm not like most my age I've been on my own since 16 not one single penny from my parents or anyone else I have an excellent career and can financially take care of my baby I haven't drank in a year and a half and have no desire to I say If you can financially take care Of him/her live on your own and can afford daycare and diapers if you want to be responsible and not drink all the time and pawn the baby off on someone else then go for it I think people don't realize how much work they are and how much they cost no offense or anything but most people under the age of 20 are too selfish and immature to take care of a child and most of the time neither of the parents have a job nor the desire to get one I don't know your fiancé but just because y'all have a baby doesn't mean he will stick around I don't care how great he is right now people can change in a heart beat make sure you don't need him I have an amazing boyfriend but if he ever walked out that would be fine I can take care of my baby without him it's a big life change to take very seriously

Just like on the other thread you posted, yes you are to young. Many girls that get pregnant at your age or younger are typically accidental pregnancies. I understand you want to be young with a child, but give yourself the chance to finish school. It is very difficult to finish school while having children. I am just going back to college, and I have a 4 year old and an 8 year old. I have been out of school since I was preggo with my son, and I really wish I never stopped. It is very hard going back after almost 10 years.
