Have you ever wondered if your soulmate is in your very own high school? Many teenagers enjoy having a significant other during their teen years, someone to have fun with and someone special who cares about them. Although some relationships are just for company on the weekends or a prom date, other couples have big plans for their futures together. Even in the small town of Lincoln, people have shared stories about meeting their current spouse in eleventh, tenth and even eighth grade. Even though a slim 14 percent of people meet in school, there is still a chance your forever sweetheart is in your classes!
There are many pros to finding your sweetheart in high school. Your first true love is your deepest love and there is something special about keeping that spark alive. You also know a lot about each other and your past. This can be helpful when trying to build a life and keep that connection.
Life isn’t all fairy tales and rainbows for those who marry their high school sweethearts though. In fact, the statistics are looking pretty low in current years. High school sweethearts that get married while still teenagers only have a 54% chance of having their marriage last up to 10 years. And there are unfortunate divorce rates that are much higher for high school sweethearts than average American couples.
Although the statistics don't show much hope, every relationship is different and lasts its own length. High school is a time to learn, grow and discover yourself. Who knows, maybe you’ll be lucky enough to find true love along the way!
