Do you think that teens love can end by marriage or guys get bored?

Asked by rere (93points) May 23rd, 2010

Tell me what do you think ? Can you marry the girl you loved in high school or you get bored of her and would prefer to know and love another girl?

It happens, but it is unlikely. People change so much between their teens and mid-20s. It takes an unusual pair of young people who have strong values and a strong commitment.

Sure, I think love can be ended by marriage.

It just depends on the people involved. It seems to happen less these days then it use to though. My grandparents met when they were 14 and stay together until my grandfather passed away (when he was 66). My cousin and her husband were high school sweethearts, but they recently got divorced. People change a lot in their teens and 20s, so the couple either grows together or they grow apart.

When I was 18 – I had the world figured out. I knew how everything worked, and I had the world by the balls.

at 21, I realized there was a lot more to the world than my eyes could see. It is a big step in your life when you realize that you don’t know everything. It reminds me of a quote I heard once.

“By the time a man realizes his father was right, he usually has a son who thinks he is wrong.”

Well, my mom & stepdad have been together since they were 13. They were only separated by his 21 year “vacation”, but now they’re back together.

I worked with two different people that married their teenage sweet hearts. They both are still married after almost 30 years. I’ve seen them interacting with their spouses and seem totally in love, have fun with them and just seem really happy. So yes, it can be done.

I think it depends on the people involved. Some shouldn’t get married that young but others would do just fine.

If the girl from high school is the right one for you, sure you can marry her. There is no rule here.

I married my high school sweetheart and we are still together 31 years later but we have had some boredom issues too. Love is not an antidote to boredom, you have to actively avoid it. A little imagination and ingenuity go a long way.

My wife and I started dating when we were fifteen and sixteen respectively. We’ve been together twenty-two years, married fourteen.

I’m not remotely bored.

My parents were childhood sweet hearts, and they are divorced. I don’t think it had anything to do with boredom though, and they truly loved each other for a time. Life conspired against their marriage.

But I know many other relationships that have begun in school and lasted an awfully long time. My friends who have those kinds of relationships often worry that they somehow missed out on being with other people. As someone who didn’t marry a childhood sweetheart, I’m quite sure they didn’t miss out on much.

Fact from fiction, truth from diction. Teen age love is 97 times out of 100 teen age lust. There is no way teens have the foundation and the hardship it takes to be able to with stand trials and tribulations a marriage of love will bring, Ones the newness of sex 3 times a day or it gets familiar moist teen marriages will be toast.

@Hypocrisy_Central I like the sound of a “moist teen marriage”!

I went to high school in a very small town and I have seen it a lot. I think it depends on the people and where they are. It seems to work ok in small towns because they don’t get caught up in anything but each other. It’s definitely possible, but just like every one else said not probable to work out.

It can happen. Back in the day, it was even commonplace.

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

@Nullo Back in the day you had to put in 6 months min. of serious work to get to 2nd base, now it is date #3 and you are expected to have hit the home run. And 1st bace has gone from feeling the titties to a slopy knob job.

Nullo's avatar

@Hypocrisy_Central As you might imagine, I don’t see that as progress.

Unlikey but it could happen,, i know as a girl i always get bored. the key is to take it as sloooooooooooow as you can. this way you wont run out of things to talk about or things to do and you wont be sick of esach other. TRUE LOVE can be ruined by those things
