School sweethearts? That's so old-fashionedPosted on: July 29, 2013 16:29:11
Childhood sweethearts might be fast becoming a thing of the past as people now swap and change their relationship status at high speed.
Finding love in your teenage years might be a fuzzy dream ideal, but the public are now choosing to wait until later to settle down.
New research from the Co-operative and Future Foundation reveals that people courting in the swinging sixties had more success at staying with their school-time partners than couples dating in the 1980s.
Those who had a brush with puppy love during the Thatcher years were less likely to stay with their partners than those 20 years before them. People who are currently trying to find the person of their dreams are making childhood sweethearts virtually unheard of.
People are now choosing to enjoy life experiences such as travelling and furthering their career, before choosing to settle down with The One.
William Nelson of the Future Foundation said adult life was now starting later: “This ‘great delay’ in getting into jobs, the housing market and having kids is now having knock-on effects right through life – with people trading up to family-sized homes later on, and far fewer young grandparents around."
Mr Nelson also said that the younger generation are also more impatient to hit their life milestones, trying to get the most out of their life as early on as possible.
Harry Benson of The Marriage Foundation said contraception and the rise of living together were key factors the demise of the childhood sweetheart. “Birth control has helped break the link between marriage and childbirth. By the mid-1980s co-habitation was becoming increasingly normal. You could move in with someone without having to get married or necessarily have much of a plan for the future.”
For people on the dating scene now, potential partners are more likely to have had rich and diverse experiences, making for some very interesting tales over drinks.
