VIDEO: Dear MA’AT’s I’m 20 years old in college and I met this girl about a year ago. We became friends and became very close but right now, she told me she’s not looking for a relationship due to the fact she broke up with her ex-boyfriend of two years over a year ago. She said she wants to focus on grad school. She’s 24 and I’m 20. We both said we loved each other and Sometimes when I think about her I always think about her being my wife and having a family with her one day when I’m finish college.
Is it normal for a 20 year old to be thinking about a long term commitment such as marriage? At my age should I be spreading my wild oats or does it make me look like a mature man to think of a woman as being my future wife?
How do I continue building this incredible connection that me and her have so that we can get to the point of marriage?
