My girlfriend and I have been together for 8 months now. We met when we were 16 at a Bible camp and now we're 19 and both go to the same Christian college. I always seem to give my heart away quickly but this time she has given her heart as well and after a long friendship and 8 months of being exclusive I am just so ready to marry this girl. We have been making plans for awhile now and we have talked about things like our careers and how they match up and we both get very excited for our future. The issue is that her parents are very set on her graduating and getting settled in her career before she even gets engaged. I completely understand why they say that and at first I was confident in respecting her parents wishes but after 8 months (which I know isn't a very long time) its becoming very difficult for me to wait to marry her. She wants to be married as well but is very set on following her parents advice. Each day is a new day of counting down the days waiting for the day I can ask her and I don't want to have that constant countdown anymore cause I know she's feeling pressure from me thinking about it so much. How can I make this time we have to wait easier for her and I to deal with and for her to not be so pressured by how bad I want to marry her?
