recently i lost a good guy friend. he was 26 and lived states over. hadent seen him in years but we used to be sooo close. like best friends. dated at age 13/12 and became high school friends. we made a pack that we would marry each other, if we wornt already, at 30.
i just never knew he wouldnt even make it to 30….
im happily married but now that he is gone, im getting all nostalgic…. he just passed away last week. i wish i would have kept in touch better.
on seeing OPs thoughts on somone else making this pack. i started to wonder how common it is?

I’m so sorry to hear that.
I had a friend that used to have a close friend and we talked about it too. For different circumstances we don’t hang out too much now, but we are friends still. We are both in different relationships thinking to get marry. But I mean this was long time ago and I really don’t think it was real, we were just joking! I like his girlfriend she is such a sweet girl and I’m so happy for his relationship, and so in love with my boyfriend.

souza_2005: I voted other. I made a marriage pact… when I was 9! And no we didn’t keep it. I can’t imagine making a pact like that as an adult though – it sounds like a sure way to complicate things if it’s serious.
I’m so sorry about your friend though. Regardless of whether your pact was serious, it’s a terrible loss and tragedy.

I know some people who did. I didn’t.

I voted other also. There was a guy I had met way back when online and we had made a pact that if we weren’t dating anyone by the time he was 30, we would meet up and date. But at last, he is getting married to a wonderful girl!

Me and my best girl friend made a pact that if we aren’t married by 30 we would ditch dreams of marraige all together and be non-sexual life partners. Then we could focus on our careers and dreams of owning a farm and an animal rescue and adopt babies together!

netto614: How old were you when you made this pact?
And why does everyone else’s (except mine) involve the age 30?

First, I am sorry about your friend! It’s sad he passed away at such an young age. 🙁
Now on the topic: A friend of mine and I did a pact, but I doubt we would have kept it even if we weren’t married. It was more for fun. 😀

I’m so sorry about your loss. My high school boyfriend and I had/have a pack that we would get married at 30 too! We dated in high school, prom, homecoming dates all that and dated his first year of collage And then broke up. When I came back home from college we hang out out a lot again(not dating, just good friends) and at that point made a pack.

I voted “other” because while I did make a pact with someone, it was to get married at 45yrs old if not married by then.

I used to be friends with a girl who made 3 of these pacts. She’s getting married at 19 to a guy she dated for four months though.

thank you. i dont think our pact was serious, we were what prob 12 or 13. at the time i think i thought it could happen lol. why 30 was the age we picked i dont know. i think he picked it haha. he was prob one of the only guys in my life that told me he loved me and i believed him. and im happily married now it just got me thinking how many other people did something like this as kids. i wonder where the concept started. some popular movie maybe?

Yeah, we had one – but our decided age was 35. Although, he’s married and in 5 months, I will be, too!
We’ve been friends since we were 8 years old – we dated on and off from ages 12 – 19 but I haven’t seen him since i was 20.
