Intending to get married

Q: I am a 17 year old girl, currently in my final year of high school. Recently, I've been having a lot of thoughts about marriage and the purpose of a Muslim's life. I reasoned that there is no point in studying for many years only to die and end up without any knowledge of Deen. Hence I decided to get married once I'm done with high school. What are your views on this decision? 

A: Yes, marriage is a responsibility. If you feel that you are responsible enough then there is no problem.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
