    My boyfriends brother has been with his girlfriend since he was 16 (34 now). They are a very lovely couple, very happy and they are just perfect for eachother it seems.
    Obviously I don't know what their relationship is like when I am not there but however corny it may sound they seem to complete eachother.
    So to me there seems no reason why someones first relationship can't be their only relationship
    If you get it right the first time, why end it?

    My first relationship was far from what you described, but I guess I was just a fraction unlucky there, huh? Anyway, to answer your question, I don't really see any reason why a couple who meet at 14 / 15 couldn't stay together forever if they really wanted to work at their relationship.
    I agree with this. My mum and dad met at school and they're still together. It's not been plain sailing but I don't think that has anything to do with the age they met (which obviously meant their experience with other people was limited).

    I suppose you're more likely to meet (cheesy term coming up) "the one" when you're older. You are likely to have had previous relationships so you know what does and doesn't work for you in a relationship and as a result, know what type of person to look for/avoid. Those without prior relationship experience don't have this advantage so it's more down to "luck" I suppose that they just so happen to find someone they click with.

    Like I said before though, age doesn't play a factor in how the relationship evolves. You can be 15 or 45, if you don't put the effort into the relationship, the outcome will be the same. Ugh, I hope this post makes sense, I think I've rambled on.

    Probably less likely, but certainly possible.
