I honestly think it depends on the strength of your character. If you don't know who you are and you don't know what you want out of life personally (because obviously you know what you want to do professionally) your relationship will have as many ups and downs as you have good and bad days. If you get called on in class and you bomb and look stupid... you come home don't want to talk and really just want to be by yourself. Or, if you ace your exam you come home, are ecstatic and want to celebrate.
Before I left home... my bf and I decided to get married and somewhat rushed it... BIG MISTAKE. We had only known one another for a year and the relationship couldn't possibly withstand the ups, downs and every which ways of the emotional roller coaster that is law school. We divorced and the divorce was final a few months ago.
This doesn't mean that you shouldn't have faith in your own relationship enduring and going the distance ... but the LAW STUDENT portion of the relationship... better know for sure they want that relationship no matter what. They will make time and the extra effort necessary. Because if the law student doesn't care and puts all other things behind law school it doesn't have a chance.
