Is 16 too young to have a baby?

I'm 14 now and me and my boyfriend have been together for just over 7months, I have always loved kids and his mum has 10- aged 18years to 8months having her first one at only 15. Me and my boyfriend have spoke about it and I have said can we have a baby when I'm 16 he will then be 18 and I've already got decent amount of money to provide for a baby and hes looking for a job now. By the time I'm 16 me and my boyfriend will have been together over 2years, do you think 16 will be too young to have a baby?

if only just given birth, age 16 years is possible. but to be a good mother and to be a wise wife, its maturity. Getting married is not just about having children. is she knowing the responsibilities as a mother? is she knowing the responsibilities as a wife? that is a big question.... for me 16 years old, not yet!
