Known my boyfriend 2 and a half years online
Met in January and have done long distance since (3 and a half hours travel)
Since May we have met a minimum of 2 times a month and gone to each other’s houses for a period of 5 days - 2 weeks.
We’re going to apply for university 2021 and request the same accommodation.
People say not to do this as there’s a chance we’ll split up. Why?

University is a time of immense personal development, you'll be experiencing new things etc. and for some couples, this proves too much and they split up. There is also a large lack of trust, maturity and respect in younger couples (not in everyone obviously) as they are presented with the temptation of new people, cheating (often thinking is it okay because they are not "with" their partner) and generally just discovering that they want something different.

However, you've been together a while and have known each other a long time. If you are truly happy with each other, love each other etc. then you'll be absolutely fine.

Saw this break up with a friend. Seems particularly painful if it goes wrong because you are embarking on a new phase and dream together. Also the breakup can be in the spotlight of new friends who have been predicting it. Same accommodation with an ex likely to be troublesome. On the positive side if it does happen, and it may not, you are busy with lots activity and new friends to distract.
