Okay so this is a mini rant/discussion of my view point on a subject which rears it’s ugly head from time to time and it is about the response and attitude from other people towards those in a serious relationship especially those in one at what some would call a ‘young’ age.
I am happily in a serious relationship with my partner and we are coming up to another anniversary this September and I cannot wait! but I want to discuss the amount of times people have not taken our relationship seriously or disregarded it because we are ‘young’. I am 20 this October and my partner is also twenty within a few months of my birthday. We got together when we were both 17 after knowing each other for 7 years and being best friends, we are like two peas in a pod our personalities are so similar and our senses of humor compliment each other and we enjoy each others company to say the least so it seemed ridiculous not to develop this further and now we have been in a wonderful, stable and strong relationship and we are still going strong but along the way we have both received negativity from others whether that be people the same age as us or older because some people in today’s society do not seem to believe in the ability of a stable and long lasting relationship like they used to and now when someone says they are in a relationship the first thing people usually guess is how long it’ll last – which is sad really 😦
Me and my partner have discussed our future, we know what we both want from life and what we are aiming for and we have even discussed marriage, having children in the future and where we would like to live, we have made solid plans and despite this people today still believe that the theory of wanting a lifetime with one specific person is ridiculous or impossible but it’s not, not if you both want it and are willing to work and fight for it.
I just believe if someone says they are in a serious relationship and intend of being with that person a long time, instead of guessing how long it’ll last or who will hurt who first, congratulate them for being able to have a monogamous relationship 🙂
What I believe is this: I know he is the one for me because I couldn’t ever imagine a life where he didn’t exist, he is the reflection of me and I have thought seriously long and hard about our relationship and so has he and we both want each other for the rest of our lifetimes. Yes I may be of a young age to have found my ‘one’ but I am happy I found him so young because it means I have more of a lifetime with him, means I will have more time to learn and grow and having a serious relationship does not stop me from being able to complete ambitions or dreams in life like some people may object, it just means that I have someone to share them with and that helps to motivate me 🙂
So that is my little rant over 🙂 Hope you enjoyed.
