Just wondering what everyone's opinion on this situation is.
A couple starts dating in high school and stays together all the way through college never breaking up. They then move in together after college and live with each other for another two years. This guy was the girls first kiss ad first everything. He's only had short high school relationships before her. They're now talking marriage and neither claims they have any doubts and have no interest in dating other people. Do you think it's smart to get married without either of them really daring or having a serious relationship with someone else? I'm curious to hear these answers.

I think its a great idea, and here are my reasons:
1. The relationship works. The value of a relationship that "works" cannot be overstated. Many people go their entire lives seeking a relationship that works, and they can never find one.
2. Other than grounds of curiosity, there is no real *good* reason to break up. Why leave someone important to you behind? What did they do to you to deserve this? Because you were so selfish you would rather betray them because you wanted to go out and have a bunch of experiences with other people? Beyond showing them how massively shallow you can be, there is no real reason to break up.
3. Getting married earlier is better than later. All of the "good" people are taken by the time you are 30. Then you get leftovers, divorcees, and other fails. Get what you want fast, while the getting is good! You think there might be something better, but what if by the time you find it you realize you had it and its too late? Statistically, I think this is the case as people get older and pair up and those left unpaired were unpaired for a reason. The longer you wait, the worse it gets.
4. You both start out with nothing (probably). This is a great reason! Why wait later in life, after you amass wealth, and then you are constantly thinking the other person might really love you because of your money or your accomplishments. Going with the old sweetheart means they love you for you, and not for what you have.
