  • I did... And I married him about a year after graduating. We were married for 8 years, but looking back, I know I was way too young.... He was an abusive alcoholic, and the only reason I stayed with him as long as I did was my residual "Catholic guilt".

    I'm sure it works for some people, but in general, I don't believe kids in high school are ready to make a commitment like that. You change SO much in your 20's, and even though most 17/18 year olds may think they know everything, they just don't. They're still kids in so many ways. The person you are at 18 is not going to be the same person you'll be in your late 20's, and the person you think is the love of your life at 18 is not going to be the same 10 years later, either...

  • One of my good friends did. She also got married right after graduation and they are still married. No one said it would last but 3 kids and 7 years later they are still going strong.

  • I got married in HS and the asshole was such a cheater I left him a lil over 7 years ago (5 years into our relationship 1 1/2 years into the marriage) We had 2 kids together and his mistress has 2 that look nothing like him. He hasn't even divorced me yet saying he doesnt want to marry her go figure.
