People Still Married to Their High School Sweethearts Share Secrets to Lasting Love


It's a rare thing for high school sweethearts to stand the test of time and have successful long-term relationships. People grow and change so much as the years go by, so it's understandable that people who aren't yet adults tend to drift apart. I can tell you with absolute certainty that I am a completely different person than I was in high school. Like, yikes

But it's nice to hear from people who got it right on the first try. One Redditor recently posed a question to those who are still with their high school sweethearts on AskReddit. They wanted to know the secret to the longevity of their relationship. And let me tell you, these answers are what it's all about.

Don't hide behind "fake words."

Pipewrecker came right out of the gate with concise but super important words of advice for any couple. You should never be "hiding behind fake words." If you have a problem, talk about it. Don't say everything is "fine" when it is definitely not. You are allowed to feel the way you are feeling, and you are entitled to express it, even if doing so will make your partner uncomfortable. That's what relationships are all about, baby!
