Posted 6/16/08
my brother and his gf are living together for almost 4 years...
sadly, they end up being separated. The good thing is they didnt have to file an annulment.

Just a little bit of an exaggeration.


You're 16. You'll come to realise when you're a bit older.


I'm 16 and all the teenagers I know live at home. Why when I'm older will I understand this better?


Because by 18, more than half the average teen population will have left home, or WANT to leave home. Or have become involved in a typical teen relationship that will only end in heartache but they don't realise. =U


Yeah but leaving home and living with a boyfriend/grilfriend isn't the same topic. My sister Jerrie left home at 18 to live with my other sister Claire because Claire's house was closer to Jerrie's work.
I want to leave home now because the location is so bad and far from everything including public transport, it doesn't mean I will.
I think you'll find that 'typical teen relationships' aren't subject only to those who move out and that they're not the only ones that end in heatbreak.


Uh... "Or have become involved in a typical teen relationship". Different matter entirely. I mean sure, some of these turn out the right way. But as a teen, people are still naive and have idealistic views about the world. The desire for independence will only get one so far.


.. So you're saying 90% of teenagers move out and have these typical teen relationships.. And are naive and have idealistic views of the world that can't possibly be true?

Question being: Why do teenagers feel the need for relationships? It's not exactly taught to us by our parents that we should get out there and bag every BF/GF we can. Or maybe, depending on upbringing.

Until someone can experience many sides of life and live the way others do, they'll be classed as naive in my eyes.

.. When was this question brought in? Because I'm almost positive the main question was whether or not living together outside of marriage was okay..
And the question I asked you was ".. So you're saying 90% of teenagers move out and have these typical teen relationships.. And are naive and have idealistic views of the world that can't possibly be true?"
BUT to answer your completely random question.
I don't feel the need for a relationship.. You should stop basing teenagers mindsets off your own experiences, it's rather insulting. -.-"
You are naive to think that all teenagers are like this.
Clearly, 90% is a huge over-exaggeration.

Well if it's that answer you want; Then no. Nothing's wrong with it. All I was saying was that the majority of teenagers tend to go overboard with such matters, ne?

...no. 90% isn't a huge exaggeration. Not from around here.

It's against the conservative thoughts but yeah, I think it's practical. But no, I won't engage in such.

It's not the answer I want, it's the answer the creator of the thread wanted.
No, they don't, as I've stated before.. No teenagers I know are in such housing arrangements with their boyfriends/girlfriends. People who are 18+ are generally classified as adults, not teenagers, however, those I know also aren't in what you keep calling typical teenage relationships (which these relationships clearly aren't), they have room mates.
Oh, 90% isn't an exageration.. It just so happens that somehow even with such a large protion of teenagers doing this, I haven't met any?
