19 Things You Know If You've Been With Your Partner Since You Were 14
A rare but mighty breed.
In the early days, the question, "Aren't you a bit young to be in love?" was the bane of your existence.
And other childhood couples gave you so much hope.
You've known each other so long that couples party games have become a breeze.
And you can easily distinguish the meaning behind the various different nods, looks, and nudges you give each other.
Especially the look your other half gives you around dinnertime that says “Take way tonight?”
Remembering arguments from your younger years is never a pleasant experience.
And neither is the horrific realisation that you once had *relations* with a teenager.
You’ve grown so comfortable with one another that absolute honesty is the only way of communicating.
You know weird things about each other too, like when they’re about to sneeze...
And you have a whole back catalogue of things guaranteed to make the other person laugh.
Having the same hometown makes family get-togethers and the festive season just a little bit easier to manage.
Even if there is one member of your partner’s family who still doesn’t quite trust you.
You already know the exact reaction you’d get if you told your mutual friends you were getting married.
You sometimes wish people understood that it isn’t always sunshine and roses.
Because you are still trying to train each other to be less (completely bloody) annoying sometimes.
And you have blazing arguments just like any other couple.
But when your friends share stories of that new asshole they're dating, you can listen with horror together.
You know that if you could put up with each other as grumpy teenagers, then you can sure as hell handle just about anything now.
And you're so glad you stuck it out, because nothing is better than being in love with someone who has loved you since were young, spotty, and irresponsible.
