For marriage the bridegroom has completed the age of twenty-one years and the bride the age of eighteen years at the time of the marriage.
However the girl being 18 years of age can always negate any proposals that she may receive.

You both are major according to voting and legal citizen. But as per the Indian marriage laws man must have 21 years to marry a girl who can be 18 years. So there you cannot marry at this point of time.. u need age to marry legally. Moreover she is major she can seek protection under law as she has right to marry anyone of her choice
