I've seen a lot of people have wonderful long lasting relationships then, all of the sudden, tie the knot and then they split.
I think marriage can put a lot of pressure on couples. Our gain, will eventually be, someones else's possessions.
I think relationships romantic / plantonic / family etc. We're social beings and I think it's natural to want to have someone to share things with.
But there is nothing wrong with being single ( I am single right now ) and enjoying the company of others until you find the one that is right for you, at any age. Those that wish to remain single should, of course, but many of us find life more satisfying when shared with a partner.
The downfalls in teenager dating is lack of communication when hasty decisions are chosen, a jealous partner, long distant relationships, cheating on their girlfriend or boyfriend, when families get involved in affairs and when people forget how to talk to one another.
Also, a simple google search will quickly reveal to you that the oft-quoted "50% of marriages end in divorce" statistic is a myth based on faulty logic. The quality of your life is the quality of your relationships.
You can't control anyone else, nor make them want you.
