Now let’s get personal, people say young love doesn’t last…I say they’re wrong! As I don’t conform to this stereotype, I’d like to discuss it. My partner and I have been together for the past 5 years, of course not every moment has been filled with joy and happiness, how can it be when you grow up with each other, but the majority is…and I wouldn’t have traded anything for the world.
Being in a slightly different situation to people my age, my now fiance is older than me, something which in this day and age is frowned upon. I understand it, where people come from, however, given the circumstances, it was everyone else’s chance to understand it.
My partners parents are quite old fashioned, and unfortunately for a very long time, they were also against the idea. However, their views were as with many parents, passed to my partner. In order to ask me out, he asked my dad, who said yes (not denying that he probably wouldn’t have asked me anyway). He used to pick me up and walk me home every night. He is a real gentleman.
It took a while for anyone to take us seriously, I think it was the fact that we stayed together that changed his parents’ minds and the minds of others.
We fell in love young, we have grown together, we have promised ourselves together, and as adults, we can say that we want to be with each other forever.
So for that stereotype of young love not lasting, it’s complete b******t
Anyone else had similar experiences or views? We’d love to hear about them, be sure to leave a comment.
