Do relationships last past high school? Are teenagers mature enough to have real relationships?

Some do, the vast majority don't.
My parents met really young, married very very young and are still married, in fact, I am one of the few people I know who's parents are married or still together so long.
Most aren't like them though, and they also met in the olden days (my parents are very old for my age) so kinda different.
I personally know of one relationship that lasted from school and still together now in their thirties with a bunch of kids, but that's it. I've never met anybody apart from that couple and my parents who lasted, and I don't really hear of it happening, but it does happen once in a while.
There's no reason to date really at this age, other than just for fun, somebody you like to hang out with, or practice. It's not like there's a reason you should or a reason you shouldn't, just do whatever. Just don't get too serious too quick, go into into it knowing maybe it'll last maybe it won't, be safe, don't feel too down if you break up.0
