    Yeah gypsies, I heard they always marry really young. I knew a couple who lived in a caravan in an old decrepit building site outside my local Sainsburys.

    Well, my close friend is turning 18 soon, and she has been with her boyfriend since she was 13, and she actually believes that he is "the one" and thinks she will marry him, fairly young.

    Not another relative but I know a person who came from a tribal area near mine who was married since he was 13, the last time I spoke to him he was 17, i know that he wasn't exactly the best husband, he was still a kid at heart, but also thought he was a man, so he became very possesive and controlling

    why can't you be dependant on your partner? I get what you mean about getting married young with no qualifications and being completely dependant, so I say get your qualifications, go uni, then get married. Not every women needs to work, it's unfair that women feel pressurised into working

    you cannot predict what is going to happen in future... try to be prepared for the situation... and no one is pressuring women to do job.... all i am saying is to be prepared for the situation that can arise... :cute:
