You are entirely too young for all of that.
You have your whole life ahead of you.
Men will always be there. Trust me
Grow up a bit and live life before you do that.
This response does not create any attorney-client relationship. Only a signed written agreement can do that. This answer is only in relation to the facts presented and may change according to unidentified facts. Always consult with an attorney.
Getting engaged is not a legal status and you can "get engaged" all you want. You cannot marry until you are over 18 without parental consent AND a court order. It is also illegal for you to have sex, or engage in any sexual conduct (kissing, making out, oral sex, etc.) until you are 18, and if your boyfriend is 18 or older, he is committing a serious crime by engaging in sexual contact with you and he can go to jail. Getting engaged does not make it legal for you to have sex or engage in sexual conduct, if that is what you are hoping. You are entirely too young to be engaged or even considering marriage. You have your whole life ahead of you. Why rush into anything?

Yes. However, I would seriously urge you, encourage, and advise you to wait until you are much older before you make that type of commitment.
