i think its ok for someone thats 16+ to be involved in a "serious" relationship most people from the ages 12-15 dont really know what a serious relationship is and these relationships are mostly referred to as 'puppy love'. in australia there are people as young as the age of 8 dating . what has this world turned into and with the 12-15 yr olds they date for 1+ months and break up. which is jst plain wrong. but there are people who last long. my cousin has been with his gf since he was 11 he is now 16. which is awesome. but i still disagree with young people dating. i started dating my first bf 2 months before i turned 17, but sometimes i still wonder whether or not its such a good idea consider i am still so young

EDIT

in saying so, there are still people that are 16,17,18+ that still date like young teens. so it really depends on the person and their maturity level

They can go with first level love like dates and stuff, but not going to far like marriage yet. They can do that when they mature their body and mind so that there is no abortion or anything.

Yeah having a serious relationship as a teenager is not a good idea, especially one that turns sexual.

No matter how mature you think you are, it is a scientific fact that teenager's brains are not developed enough to handle a serious relationship and the pain and hurt and stormy emotions that will inevitably result. It is a fact the the decision making areas of the brain are not fully developed until the early 20's. That is why kids make so many stupid decisions. It makes sense to them at the time but that is the fault of the undeveloped brain.

Before 16, it is very difficult to have a real relationship. You are pretty much 100% reliant on your parents and if they are doing their job properly, they will not allow a serious relationship to develop.

After 16, casual dating should be fine. At that age you take on a lot of additional responsibility, driver's license and work are two examples to added responsibility. The responsibility hopefully leads to maturity.

At 18, you are on your own, do what you want.

There is a reason your parents didn't want you to have sex as a teenager and the least of which is pregnancy. You can really screw yourself up emotionally.

no I don't think we teenagers should be in relationships because like for example if you were a guy and your best friend was a girl and you started going out with this other girl your best friend may get jealous and you would probably hardly have any time for your best friend.You'll get way to distracted in school.

im in a serious relationship, and have been since the age of 16, although it was 2 months before i turned 17. you cant say that people arent matured till their 20s people are different, i know a few people that dont know how to look after themselves and you could say they are still dependant on their parents and they are 22+. people are different. yes there are people that make stupid mistakes and put themselves in a situation that proves to be difficult. but there are also teens that are very responsible

I'll state it again with absolute certainty. Yes people's brains mature at different rates; however, it is scientific fact that brains are not fully developed until in the 20's. Especially the areas involved in decision making. Just because you are in a serious relationship, doesn't mean it is the best thing for you. You might think it is but you are in no position to make an objective analysis. Just because teens have accepted a lot of responsibility doesn't mean their decision making and emotion areas of their brain are at optimal development.

*breaking form for this one post*

- My cousin dated this girl in highschool and it was a very serious relationship. After high school they moved in together and they seemed unbreakable. They had been eachother's first and only's and I thought it was so romantic. But while the girl got a carreer in nursing and spread her wings socially, my cousin stayed at his factory job (which is respectable work with benefits, I'm not knocking it). Anyway, gradually the girl lost interest in my cousin and began to wonder what she had missed in a youth full of mature decisions and monogomy.

My cousin was wrecked. They had been engaged and he really thought they would last for ever. As she'd been his only girlfriend since high school, he couldn't cope with losing her and had no idea how to fill the void, and not having any social outlets outside of work he took to the one thing you know you can do alone after highschool: bar hop. My cousin is now an alchoholic Myspace addict always looking for the next Mrs. Right while the girl lives it up and has a wonderful life.

You may think that you are mature enough to handle speration, but being in a serious relationship for such a long time that started at such a young age may leave you unprepared for the necessary steps to move forward with your life.
