High School Sweethearts – Can It REALLY Last? (Video) – I find this topic interesting, because Christine and I have been together since we were 19. While we weren’t High School Sweethearts, most experts would say it shouldn’t have lasted because we were too young and we would grow apart. Instead we grew together, and I couldn’t imagine trying to build a life with someone I didn’t know until I was 30. I think getting together so young is one of the biggest strengths in our relationship.

  1. Hi Steve,
    Thanks so much for the shout out! 🙂 How cool it is that you and your wife were so young when you met! I’ve known my husband for 18 years but have been married for 12. So maybe that’s close enough! :D.

  2. Hey Steve,

    Congratulations to you and Christine, that’s wonderful. It’s great that you two grew together. That’s the key ingredient I think to having a happy relationship.

    Jennifer and I are always changing and growing too, and thankfully we are also growing and changing together on the same path. Which is truly wonderful and a blessing.

    Have an awesome day!

  3. Thanks for the link to this post. It is inspirational reading. I know what it is like to have three teenagers and try to control a sometimes spiraling debt. The hardest part is having the patience to see any results. It is alos very hard not to give up but this is where the power of positive thinking comes in.
