Just curious who here is marrying their first loves? I wonder if anyone has done any studies on the marriages of those who marry their first or not? LIke… on one hand you have never been hurt so badly maybe you take things for granted? But it also seems kind of sweet to be each others’ one and only love. 🙂
I will start: I am not. I have said “I love you” to three guys (including FI)… although I later realized that I did not love the first one. Just silly high school puppy dog love 🙂 The second guy I do believe was my first true love… but despite how badly it hurt to lose him I feel it makes me appreciate what I have with Fiance so much more! It is so wonderfully uncomplicated and easy and happy. I don’t love so naively anymore, but I think I love with more appreciation… if that makes any sense?

I said yes, but there was one guy before Fiance who I said “I love you” to, but never meant it. I just wanted to boyfriend lol.

He’s my first true love… but I guess I thought I was in love with my first, high school boyfriend. Thank goodness that didn’t last, though. 🙂

I am! He was my first real everything–boyfriend, kiss, love, and now soon-to-be husband! Obviously, I was very picky about who I gave my heart to. I know it’s a little unconventional and it wasn’t my intention, but I couldn’t be happier with the results 🙂

He is definitely my first love 🙂 I didn’t want to say “I love you” until I knew that I was going to marry the person and I’m so happy that I waited for him!

I was engaged before, but uneasy about it- turns out he was a cheater cheater pumpkin eater (he’s married with 4 kids now) LOL
There was another man, a lot older than me who I fell in love with- but he wasn’t interested in getting married, or having a family, or even just being monogamous so I had to make that split… he’s a great guy, just not husband material.
My boy is awesome, and perfect, he’s all the great things that all of my previous flings have been, and more- without any of the bad stuff!

my FH is defninitely my first and only… i have fallen for other guys before, but i’d never said “i love you” to them. in fact, FH was my first real, serious relationship. after nearly giving up hope on finding the right guy, all of my college friends actually predicted that the first guy i ever had a real relationship with i would marry. they were right!

i had a bf of 7 1/2 years before him. it was a horrible relationship. but like the idiot i am, i did love him.

I will say my Fiance is not my first love…but he is my best love. My daughter’s father I guess can be called my first love. I didn’t love him enough to marry him or give up my independence so I don’t know how DEEP a love it was. I can honestly say I have never loved as deeply with my whole self before my Fiance.

My Fiance is my first and last love. We didn’t date anyone in between, but we did break up at point point for a summer (we’ve been together for 8 years). However, we both felt that is was a good break for us to grow and change and make our relationship that much better when we did decide to get together again. 🙂
