Dating your high school sweetheart college

We chugged through the dusk on a B-road in his mother’s battered Mini, swapping stories of our day at school.

I don’t remember how our relationship began, but it lasted for nearly two years, and it shaped and cheered the last chapter of my teenage life.

I hadn’t had much interest in boys until I met him, but he seemed different from the pack.

He made some dismissive remarks about my career as a journalist, and was quick to tell me he drove the Ferrari he’d always wanted.

He was wealthy, he mixed with powerful people, and he lived in the most beautiful house in the most prestigious area of his particular suburb.

What I’d once seen as chutzpah began to look like arrogance; playfulness became aggression, and he was hard work. Quite brutally as I recall, in a matter-of-fact conversation by the lockers outside Room 18, explaining it was pointless to be together, since we’d both be heading off to pastures new quite soon.

He argued, told me I’d regret ‘dumping’ him, then stormed off in yet another huff. Then we lost touch until last year, when I saw his name on an internet forum dedicated to our old school.

While many brave teens may have popped the question before graduation, the new trend these days seems to be adults reconnecting with their high school exes over social media and tying the knot!

Would you ever have considered marrying your first high school love?

The question might seem mind boggling, but the answer is actually pretty simple: they all married their high school sweethearts!
