Because its getting fucking annoying......

This place is dead.... I'm using it anyway!

Guess what? I have to bitch.... please feel free to tell me what you think.

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year and a half now. Neither of us has ever cheated on the other. He has gotten me to open up and share things with him that I have never shared with anyone. You see, I have been in bad relationships, my life hasn't been a bed of roses, and he helps me through everything. All of the leftover emotion and conflict from my past, everything that I regularly try to run away from, he helps me sort through. He shares things with me too, despite his father teaching him machismo, and how men shouldn't really have emotion, etc, etc, etc... Now I'm not saying that our relationship is perfect, everyone has their rocky times.... but for me, this is the best it has ever been! Even when we argue, we get over it, talk it through and move on! Recently, my boyfriend decided that he wants to marry me. Needless to say, I was ecstatic....

Now that we've got that out of the way......

I am fucking TIRED of hearing people tell us that we don't have a chance! Do you know why they say it? They tell us that our relationship is going to fail because we are only 18.  WTF? I get it, we are young.... but that doesn't mean we can't have a mature relationship. OUR  relationship is a hell of a lot healthier than many I've seen between older people! You see... I believe that maturity and mindset decide how a relationship is going to turn out. We don't think about our relationship in the same way a typical teenager does. It isn't about sex, or status. It's about support.

Now I can't even talk to my adult friends (married or not) about it, because I hear the same thing from everybody. And now its even worse! My boyfriend is in the Navy, and he went into basic a few weeks back... and now they're CONVINCED it won't work out!Fuck! Don't they see that their obvious scorn of our choices is only going to make us fight harder for it? 

I just don't understand! Just because we're young......
