Girlfriend(24) gave me(19m) an ultimatum on marriage
I’ve been dating this girl, Ali, for nine months, and she told me recently that she wants to get married before she is 25, which is next year in April, and if I don’t put that ring on, she will find someone else.
I love her and really think she’s the one, but my friends say that I can’t know someone’s true self in that short period of time and that it’s not a good idea to get married while I am still in school.
But I am graduating in 2024, so I don’t think that matters. Would it be a mistake to get married so early in our relationship, or does it not matter?
P.s – We have talked about marriage, religion and kids and were on the same page, but we have never lived together which might be a problem.
She wants to be married by age 25 but she has said it doesn’t matter who she marries, so realize that she doesn’t care about you. You are just a body to sign a paper.
If she really loved you, she would wait until you finished school and started a career. She wouldn’t threaten to find someone else to marry in five months.
So understand that although you have known her for six years, you don’t KNOW her. She might think her ultimatum will scare you into marrying her instead of losing her, but she has just proven why you should get far away.
Of course she’s worried about your parties. You will finally realize how manipulative she is and that younger women don’t act like that. So tell her good luck and you’ll be a guest at her wedding in April.
