Title: young love, as seen by the older people
Post by: ->Soon on December 04, 2006, 07:35:50 PM
so, when your listening to one of your younger classmates, say, sub 22, talking about how they ar ein love and this is it and no one else will ever do, do you also chuckle?

ive tried explaining to a few of them the odds are astronomical they will stay with one person, but you cant logic with people in love.

oh well, they will learn...

Nah...I got married a week past my 22nd birthday and we haven't killed each other yet.

Call me an eternal optimist...

There are lots of people who marry their college sweetheart, so I don't really think it's that big an issue. I think the real issue is people who get married because they think that's what they should be doing, instead of taking more steps to ensure that the relationship will work in the long-term.

Actually I could easily imagine marrying the person I am with now ... but I guess I am one of those young people in love.....  :)

Do have to say I feel a certain amusement at it, yes. Now I'm sure many married-early people can make it work, but I am not so certain that means it was a good idea. Hell, I'm not sure if getting married at all is a good idea yet.

Yeah, I don't really think that it is strange for a couple who is in college to be thinking about marriage.

I married young (20) and it was great...the divorce six years later was even greater...

i think young love is one of the best experiences in life one can have.  sure a lot of times it doesn't work out.  but when your young & in love, anything seems possible.  & i guess as older (jaded) people, we're supposed to laugh @ that, but sometimes i look back & wish that i could love as openly as i did when i was younger.

I don't think it is necessarily comical to watch young love, since there are certainly some that are genuine.  From my college experience though, it is highly irregular.  I do know some people that stayed together and got married though, including myself (actually mine has been since high school), but it is by far the exception. 

Most college students are not mature enough to really know what they are getting into, and thus it just makes me shake my head when I hear it.

I got married at 23 and I do not think that is early at all, it all depends on the person.

I laugh my a$$ off!   ;D   My partner and I got together when we were 34 and 32, respectively.  #3 for both of us.  Together for almost 14 years and couldn't be happier.  We both wonder (and laugh about) what we were thinking with partners one and two in our twenties.   ???
