Of course there are people who get married and last a lifetime and where high school sweethearts….BUT I don’t think being high school sweethearts is enough to make you stay married. Don’t marry him because he’s all you’ve had, you should marry him because he’s all you want.

I’m marrying my high school sweetheart a week before our 6 and a half year anniversary. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love him and am making a committment to love him forever. I’ve seen plenty of people make it work, but what really matters is that we’re both whole-heartedly, without a doubt committed to making it work. I agree with what @Charm bracelet said – You should marry him because he’s all you want and he’s all you’ll ever want.

Yes; My Fiance & I are highschool sweethearts. We started dating my Junior year & his Senior Year. We’ll be together exactly 7 years @ Midnight of our Wedding Night. As above I feel like the reason we will make it is because we’re committed to each other & I know that he is the only person I will ever want and need in my life. After this many years I still get excited to see him @ the end of the day.

Also my parents were High School Sweethearts. My mom was 17 (almost 18) when they got married. They’ve been married 29 Years now; and are still making things work.

I think the one thing that young couples need to remember ( Actually ANY couples) is that things will not always be perfect. Love & Marriage is not ALWAYS a fairytale. There will be fights & arguments. But the Love you have has to be Stronger than those. There has to be communication & respect to make things work. Often Marriage is about sacrifices. If you know in your heart that this is the person you want and need in your life & no one else could be better; than I think that your Marriage can withstand Time; & beat the odds!

Fiance and I are high school sweethearts, we’ve been together since he was 15. I think there’s something to be said for getting through high school/college age together, you grow together and form memories that many couples don’t have. I am now 23, he is 21, and we will be married in a month… and while I know it won’t be a fairytale, I do know it will be wonderful.

We are high school sweethearts.  We didn’t start dating until our junior year and broke up for a few months in between but we have been together ever since!  I think it is definetly realistic for your relationship to last as long as you both grow together in your relationship.  Everyone grows as they get older but if you make the effort to grow together instead of apart, it really can work.  My husband and I have basically been together for 6-7 years now and even though we have changed, our relationship is stronger than ever.

we are high school sweethearts..we are eachothers first and only relationship and kiss as well…everything!

We’re both 26 now..been together for 7 years and will get married soon. I don’t know how old you are, but I wouldn’t have gotten married 5 or 4 years ago (even though I know we’d be together)…but defintely ready now.

And I agree with luli that my husband and I wouldn’t have gotten married before now because we were both in school and wanted to make sure that we were completely settled first (though we are younger than luli).  I am 22 and my husband is 23.

We’re high school sweethearts – met our junior year, and will be married next summer at 24/25 (we’ll have been together for 8 years). Obviously i think it can work, or we wouldn’t be doing this.  I agree with MissAsB, I think we’ve gotten stronger because we’ve lasted so long. I know we’re both very different people from when we met, but we still love each other and appreciate who we really are. If you still really like your Fiance and you think this is a good idea, then don’t fret about how old you are or how young you were when you met.

My Sister and BIL were, I have several friends who are, and My Fiance and I are. My sister and friends have been married 2+ years, and Fi and I have been together for just over 2. = ) We’re getting married right before our 3rd dating anniversary. Oh. and we’re all 20-23.

We are! We’ll have been together 7.5 years on the day we’re married! We met when we were SENIORS in highschool. A lot of people mention that we missed out on the “dating experience”, but really, we have such a strong bond because we grew up together. We’ve been through all the rocky young adult crap together and because of it, I think we’re pretty much bulletproof!

@jwinnings, if you can make it through all that crap together, I think you have a really strong relationship! Good luck ๐Ÿ™‚ The “right feeling” is the most important ๐Ÿ™‚

We are high school sweethearts as well. We got together when we were 18 and it’s been almost 4 years now. We’ll be at nearly 5 when we get married.

My parents were as well. They got married when my mom was 18 and my dad 21. That was in 1975. June 2010 will be 35 years for them.
