What is the percentage of high school couples that get married?
Question Posted Wednesday October 13 2010, 6:01 am
How many high school couples actually end up getting married? My boyfriend and I were talking about getting married in a couple of years when we both graduate and he said we'd probably be one of the few that make it out together. I was curious what the percentage of that actually is for high school couples. Everybody seems so in love and I think it's sad is like nobody ever gets married out of high school. Anybody knows the numbers on that?
i looked it up apparently 2-3% last to marriage, i am 17 years old and i been with my boyfriend for a year we live together and we get on so well. If i was you i wouldn't pay attention to the statistics. Just live each day like it is the last enjoy your boyfriend.

Only 2% of couples actually get married to their high school sweetheart and stay together. I agree it would be nice if more couples did this. I believe the rate is so low, for teens tend to want to be with someone just to say they are with someone, to impress their buddies, or because they just need a good friend at that time (they aren't thinking long-term). I am not saying people are always this way, just some make better decisions in relationships than others.
My boyfriend and I are very happy together and even though we haven't talked about marriage yet, I am sure we would make a great couple. It all depends on your boyfriends devotion to you (having a connection), where he plans to move/go to school after graduating (being in separate cities can be a huge factor in the end result), how often you keep in contact with eachother (with no fighting), and how much effort you both put into making it work (such as supporting his goals as well as your own). I believe it is definately possible that you could find your love in high school, you just have to be positive that he is the one. 2% ... you never know, you could be one of the few <3 [ gr8fruit's advice column | Ask gr8fruit A Question ]
