    I married my HS sweetheart, and we’re still together. We dated for 12 years before getting engaged. however, we lived together for 8 years and owned a home for 5 of those. We were also both over the age of 25…I was 27 when we got married and he was 30. He’ll be turning 32 next month and I’ll be 29 shortly after. We don’t have kids yet.

    I should have phrased it better: Just with starting the threads in quick succession both relating to how long one has been with their SO before getting engaged it seems almost like you’re a sociologist collecting data. Nothing wrong with being curious, it was just something I noticed. That’s all I meant 🙂

    I married my high school sweetheart and we are still together. We moved in together 4 years after we started dating (him at 16 me at 17), so we were both in college and done with the whole “roommate thing”. 

    We were together 6 years before we got engaged, and 7 years before we got married. We are going on our two year wedding anniversary and are expecting our first baby.

    I think high school sweetheart type stories can work out just fine.. IF both parties grow together instead of apart. It can be an amazing thing to grow up with someone and I can imagine it makes you a stronger unit.

    On the flipside of the coin though, there’s couples that don’t mature at the same rate and end up drifting apart.

    I married my high school sweetheart after 7 years of dating. I was under 25 when we married. We’re still together and our 9 year dating anniversary is quickly approaching!

    You left out a poll option for people like me that did not seriously date in HS. I thought dating in HS and “acting” like grown ups was silly while I was under my parent’s roof. When I went off to college- on their dime, but not their roof ha! I dated.
