Marry your high school sweetheart? Why would you do that? Relationships are like anything else in this life, you get better with practice. You need plenty more relationships before contemplating marriage. Normally the only people getting married really young these days are the religious crazies who won't fcuck unless they're married. Another terrible reason to get married.
Haha, this. I couldn't have said it better.
Most high school relationships don't work out, and if you are always fighting that is a BIG sign that it's not going far. Why would you want to get married right out of high school anyway? You have your whole life to work love and marriage out, the next few years should be about YOU. Not the responsibilties of a married person.
What about college? A career? Don't you want to experience life a little more before you settle down? I'm not saying high school marriages are all mistakes, I'm just saying you've only just begun and there is definitely more to see. Plus, feelings change with time. Are you sure yours or his won't?
That means "cohabitation". It doesn't mean marriage. If you were really suited to be married, it wouldn't matter if you lived together and waited for a few years first just to be sure, would it?
Well it's obviously your decision. If you both feel you are ready to take that step, then take it. But beware, you don't really know someone until you've lived with them. Perhaps try that for a year or two first?
Don't do it! Life is for living & experiencing new things. The younger you are when you meet, the less likely it is to last very long. Sorry.
ummmm... yes. You are far too young to even think of commitment, but then all you can do is follow your heart & learn from your mistakes...
i actually don't tend to believe 'good' and 'bad' even exist.<br />
having to label something as good or bad just limits you, because there is good and bad in everything, we just choose what to see. <br />
really, marrying anyone at any age could potentially have a positive or negative outcome. over 50% of marriages end in divorce, anyway, so it probably doesn't really make much difference when you marry, but more likely who. <br />
the only reason marrying your high school sweetheart straight out of highschool might be unwise is that a relationship you find satisfying at 17 or 18, will not necessarily seem adequate later in life where you may want more security and emotional connectedness, and the relationship may have been more built on attraction and fun earlier in life. <br />
that said, the possibilities are endless, and each one of us is just a speck on this earth and even smaller and less significant in the universe. what any of us do, really doesn't matter. it is not good or bad, it just is.
Fighting, always? Then it's bad.
High School sweethearts....great! Always fighting.....bad.
I think that it's bad because a high school couple's feelings for each other will probably change in about a year or two. A high school student's perspective on true love can be pretty immature and fleeting, ba<x>sed on the fact that their values and judgments are not fully developed yet. and They could end up marrying their high school sweetheart for all of the wrong reasons, and then end up in a miserable relationship in a year or so. On top of that, teenagers are just too young to get married, and they may regret the fact that they did not accomplish something greater for THEMSELVES in years to come.
