I'm actually not engaged, but my boyfriend has been talking about it. I'm not sure when he's going to ask but from our conversations it seems like it will be within 8 to 10 months. I want to say yes, but I'm only 18 and I'm not sure that it would be the best idea to get married right now, because I'm just starting college and whatnot. So I'm wondering if 24 years Is too long for an engagement. Is it a good idea to wait or should the wedding be soon after the proposal?
