9 Reasons Why You Should NEVER Marry Your High School Lover
Why You Should NEVER Marry Your High School Lover – Sorry, but… When I was in high school I dreamed of meeting someone, falling in love, and marrying them. How cool it must be, I thought, to spend your life with your high school sweetheart!
Since I went to an all girl school and was primarily interested in men, this did not seem like something that was ever going to happen.
I mean I knew boys, I was in a theatre group after school that was full of them.
But, you know, it was a theatre group. So suffice to say that the pickings were… slim.
Now that I’m 33 I look back at my 15 year old self and thank god I didn’t have a high school sweetheart. Because I’m a totally different person now than I was when I was 15! I can’t imagine being attracted to the same sort of person I was attracted to then (namely, dicks who wore Oakleys and loved to quote Adam Sandler).
It got me thinking, there are so many other reasons that winding up with your high school sweetheart might not be everything it’s cracked up to be.
1. They’ve read all your bad poetry
When you marry your high school sweetheart, you’re marrying someone who knows you better than you know yourself. Oh sure, that’s romantic, until you remember the period during 7th grade where you wrote a lot of tortured poems inspired by The Cure that you made him read. Awkward.
