According to statistics, 2 percent of high school relationships result in marriage. Many people grow apart over the years as they grow older and their views change.
Life is not like the movies in which high school sweethearts are absolutely perfect and end up getting married and living happily ever after. This only occurs in 2 percent of high school relationships, and additional statistics suggest that such relationships are also likely to end in divorce. Factors that contribute to the failure of these types of relationships include changes in views as an individual grows from an adolescent to a young adult, in addition to the fact that many of these relationships are based on lust rather than love.
