I noticed in anime lots of high school sweethearts or childhood friends get married.. but in real life does that happen as often as in an anime? Is every high school sweet heart going to get married by the end of the anime or show? Does Japan have more high school sweet hearts/ childhood friends getting married than most countries?? Because i see this in most anime...

Yea, no that doesn't happen as often in real life. lol

I can confirm this. I was like a nobody in high school, and i vowed that i'd end up one of the more well known and get the girl.
Graduated a few months back and i'm still there and i didnt get the girl ):

well ya also have to take into account that most anime are focused on students in either middle or highschool so it might just present more of an opportunity for the highschool sweetheart thing. Plus it is also a place where people spend a ton of time in, and even more time in Japan than we do in the states. With that being said one of the biggest places for them to socialize is through school like how it is for young adults here in the states. Just presents more of an opportunity. As for if there are actually more in reality though, I have no clue haha

No, I don't think it's realistic, honestly. Though I'm not saying high school sweethearts don't get married, I'm just saying its probably not as common as it is in anime.

Absolutely. I have spent my entire young life trying to get Senpai to notice me.

I mean really when you think about it most anime just focuses on the one couple from whatever highschool it is getting married or whatever. Maybe it isnt very realistic but it certainly is possible for at least one couple in a large highschool to be that way and the anime just focused on that particular pair of people x3

My high school biology teacher married his high school sweetheart. My classmate broke up with her 6 years boyfriend that she dated since middle school. I've broken up with a guy that I dated for 4 years since Junior year. I was so young and in love then. In my opinion, marrying your high school sweetheart happens more in the U.S. than in Japan.

it's possible, but i don't think it happens as often as it does in anime.
it would be cool if it did though, like hey, i could totally go for spending the rest of my life with a guy i've known for a really long time. it's kind of like you're already family at that point.

Well... I mean, it's a portrayal of young and innocent love (which there's nothing too innocent about High School). Just the purity... It's probably just an idealistic type of thing, I think.

The stories and likely embarrassing things that could happen all throughout High School are also very amusing.

A friend of mine is getting married next year to some girl he just met... last year. Crazy. (personally, I don't think it's right for them... But that's a much, much, muuuuuch different story )

My parents have actually been together since they graduated.

I've always dreamed of things being that way... But here I am now, 4 months after graduation. (-__-);

But, yeah... As far as the anime thing goes, it's just ideal for the setting and story elements (I assume). I love watching romance/slife-of-life/drama anime. The awkward innocent aspect is adorable, but I do wish sometimes they wouldn't be so... Stiff and proper all the time. lol
