I'm just curious here. What's the general opinion/perception of high school sweethearts? As in, how likely would you say it is that high school sweethearts stay together and end up getting married? Of course it depends on the relationship and people in it, but I'm wondering.
The reason I ask is that my boyfriend and I started going out five months ago. He's a senior in high school and I'm a freshman in college, so it'll be a long distance relationship for at least the next four or five years. We are completely in love with each other and it's easy to imagine spending the rest of our lives together, but the separation is going to be hard.
Which leads me to the last request: any tips for keeping the relationship strong over the distance?
Thanks, guys!

Unfortunately, the majority of high-school relationships don't work out in the long term. There are those that do, but really, it's a rare occurance.

As for the LDR question, we have plenty of resources available for you. [Smile]
