Let me give you some reassurance here....
I married at 18, we had a daughter when I was 19, and we had to end our union just before I turned 22 (he decided being a husband and Dad wasn't as easy and fun he thought it would be, and counseling didn't help him). I had the same fear you did, especially being so young. Know what happened? After 8 months of court battles and physical separation and ending in official divorce, I met a guy YOUNGER than myself (he was only 19). He introduced himself, and even though he was hesitant when I told him I was a divorced single parent, he continued to pursue me. 4+ years later he's still here, well bonded with me and my daughter who loves him like crazy. And to top it all off, my boyfriend and ex husband are actually civil and polite to one another.
It can happen, so try not to worry : ) I'm more than happy to chat more if need be!
