Well, I'm headed off to university at the end of the month on the other side of the country. But the perk is that my boyfriend of a year and a month will be accompanying me and going to school with me there. I'm really looking forward to this and I think it's going to be good for us, but I was talking with a friend last week and she had a few things to tell me.
She told me of a couple of her friends who were a part of couples who went off to university together and within the first three months they were all split up. She told me that the stress of going to school often ends up being too much for the people in the relationship to handle and they break free. Too much pressure and too much committment in the prime of their lives or something along those lines.
Neither one of us has been to this place before and we basically know no one else but one another. I see it as a comfort to have someone I know along with me, but I'm also scared of losing him. I love him very much and we seem to have an incredible relationship. Right now we have plans to be married in January, but these are only tentative at the moment. He constantly reassures me that he is very committed to me and our impending marriage.
I'm very scared that we'll get to school and realize that things aren't going to be as we anticipated. We know it's going to be tough and our relationship is going to take a lot of work and maintenance, but there's no knowledge like living it.
I very much want things to work out. Does anyone have tips or experience in this matter? Any kind of feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!
