High school relationships not likely to last

Gracie Yerges, Staff writer

We’ve all seen the movies, when the high school sweethearts end up getting married and living happily ever after. Sadly, this is not a realistic depiction of high school relationships. Most of the time they end in heartbreak or even worse,  people losing their friends because of it. 

I’m sure we can all think of that one couple that we think could last forever; they probably think they could too. Unfortunately that will be a rarity if they do survive the rest of high school. Most high school relationships will end because people are still trying to figure out who they are. 

Those that do survive high school, may not survive college. Just like high school, college can be hard for some people. Due to the  separation, long distance relationships can bring out the ugly side of people. It can bring out trust issues people have, along with a bunch of other problems. For example people can get a sense of loneliness, a lack of touch, and a lack of feeling secure in your relationship. The other issue with college and long distance relationships is that your schedules might not align, and then it’s hard to keep in touch. Eventually, you may barely know anything about your significant other. 

I’m not saying that your high school relationship will never work out, but less than two percent of marriages come from high school relationships. Perhaps you’ll be one of the two percent to make it work, or maybe not.
