Do you think they're destined to end sooner or later? Or do you believe that there's a chance that they could work out some how, and you could live happily ever after?
I know a couple that met in their freshman year of high school, and they've lived together happily since. They now have an adorable little girl, and are happily married. My dream is to marry my high school sweetheart.

Every relationship is option B honestly - you get as much as you put forth.
Reason why young love - not even high school but into the early 20's as well, tends to be flaky is because both people are still at a tender age of self - developing; often it's a case of not knowing what either really wants in a partner, or either having some romantic personal flaw that is interferring with a successful realtionship. In psych they call this phase the " power struggle" phase in which both are struggling to understand the other while trying to still enforce what is comfortable for them in the relationship.
Most relationships end at this stage.
Now that's not to say there aren't some young folks that just work; you don't have to be an absolute expert in what you want or know of yourself to find a truly loving relationship - it's just a matter of adaptability and having enough sense of self and sense of the other person to make it last. Every little bitty thing will come to light, and usually it's the small things that escalate to a point of true issue. How the two of you cope with such matters is often the determining factor.
Immaturity and naivety exists in all age groups; so whether your older or younger, the dynamics do not change.
So it is very possible to get a high school sweetheart and make it last - but it takes two to do so. And there's only so much you can do. If life just doesn't happen to let you run into the right guy while your in HS, then hey, that's just how it is.
Every boy who smiles at you, isn't going to love you the way you need it. So keep that in mind and don't set a deadline for falling in love.
Your going to stress yourself way out.
