Four of my friends married their high school sweethearts and only one is still married to her. The others divorced. My high school sweet heart became my fiancé and then cheated when I was fighting in Vietnam. Got a Dear John letter like you see in those WWII movies. I used to watch WWII movies a lot since I always wanted to be a soldier. I always felt sorry for the guy in love who got the Dear John letter and was so far away that there was nothing he could do about it. Some marriage counsellors say that it is not uncommon for high school sweethearts to marry since they dated so long that they felt the next logical step was marriage when it was just that they were used to each other. My highs school sweetheart ended up with a drug addiction, unwanted pregnancy by a random guy, mental illness that still persists, marry a guy just to support her and her son, then divorcing him the day after his last college tuition check cleared to marry a woman. For me, it was heart crushing when it happened but in retrospect it was the best thing that every happened to me in my life. It enabled me to meet my wife of 46 years. Do you have any high school (or college) sweetheart stories to share?
