The fact you said you and your girlfriend really like each other lol. Especially after three years, yes, it's too soon.

Personalities don’t fully develop until around age 23 so you and your partner might not be the same people in a few years; wait a bit, if it’s real love then a few years won’t matter.

as long as you have the right means ; financially stable then you can get married whenever
Also if you are Christian u can legally have sex when married.. so its a benefit unlike gf/bf...

People used to get married when they were teenagers because they had little choice; they had no education and women had no way to support themselves. Poor people didn’t live for that long, so it made sense to marry young.

Nowadays, I think you would have to be crazy to get married at 20. You will be a totally different person at 30 and so will she. There will be so many limitations, particularly once children come along. Liking/loving each other isn’t really enough. Experience life first and then decide what you want.

Me and my girlfriend really like each together we’ve been a couple for 3 years now.

Is it too young to get married?
Yes unless you’re financially independent and live out of your parents home i guess?

People are probably feeling very sorry for the OP, poor Beirut_Ewan. However, there's no need to do so because he is just an attention-seeking fantasist - as can be proved by his posting history.

For example, let's look at his posts on his education:

Here, he's just stated he's in his first year studying a BSc
https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...php?p=81917666

Yet a few hours ago, he wants to resit his highers to get into uni and study media
https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...php?p=81917810

Last August, he was studying for his HNC/HND and going to apply to uni NEXT year
https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...php?p=79411110

At roughly the same time, he was bemoaning the fact that he only had a few GCSEs and no A-levels
https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...php?p=79395058

Again in August, he was telling everyone he had messed up his exams (for entry to uni) and only had a C in English when he needed AAAA (in his highers)
https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...php?p=79395058

But the day before this 'messing up' had been in the form of getting only a D when he needed ABBB https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...php?p=79309728

His love life is similarly 'messy':

Here he is wondering about a girl he is not really dating but who sends him texts with lots of kisses on them
https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...php?p=81914460

Yet here he's been with his girlfried for 3 years and wondering whether he's too young to get married at the age of 20
https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...php?p=81831804

And in this thread he's married and thinking about baby names
https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...php?p=81830426

I think that's enough for now.

Layk habibe . If you're mature and you know that marriage isn't all chocolate and flowers , then go ahead . If you actually think it's all cream cheese and you're gonna make it perfect without fights and arguments then you're setting yourself up for disaster . Being financially stable is the easy part. Marriage won't make you happy, it will make you responsible . Hayda Elli 3nde yyeh , Allah ywaff2ak 7bb .

Although I can’t speak from experience I do know that most people change drastically between the ages of roughly 20-25 and therefore marriage before that age could be a bad idea as your hopes dreams and personalities could change fast. But if you really want to and can support yourselves financially then I don’t see a big problem with it

My rules for minimising the chance of a messy divorce are: min. age 25, min. time known each other 5 years, min. time living together 2 years. Not saying that it cant work getting married young but its high risk. What's the rush.
