Hi Gabi,

this is a matter of personal choice. Some people feel that the age gap causes problems of not having anything in common, or being at different life stages and wanting different things. But if 2 people want to be together, both have given their consent, and importantly they are of an age where they can legally give their consent then the choice is ultimately theirs. You mau come up against opposition from family and friends, so have you given some thought to what you might say to them?

Take your time, and there is certainly no hurry to get married at 19.
