I totally disagree. I'm in a serious relationship with my boyfriend. I was sixteen when we started dating. It's been one year and ten months. Our situation is a tad bit different though. See, he graduated on our one year anniversary. Nine days later, I said a tearful goodbye. He was off to boot camp to become a Marine. Out of the past ten months he has been in the Marines, we have seen each other for a total of twenty seven days. It's a bit rough, with my finishing my last year of high school and possibility of him being deployed, but I'm still with him, and plan to be with him. We AREN'T getting married while he is in the Marines. Instead, we plan on staying together, waiting until he gets out. I will be finishing up with college, and we will move in together. The Marines will be paying him about $1400 a month to go to school so we are good in that department. I guess I'm a tad bit different though since I am eighteen now.
