Marilyn Monroe once said, “I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.” This is an apt assessment for the couples and romantics roaming the halls of D.O.

Love is a propellant for the neediness, attention-seeking, internet-stalking, and arrogant millennials that represent this generation. Perhaps it is cynical to say, but it is not too far off that the suggestion is insane. Love in itself is contradictory, being selfless and selfish all at once, and adding the trials of being a teenager, puberty, and high school angst creates a catastrophic formula.

Purely from observation, one can see that high schoolers who are in couples seem overbearingly affectionate. Those who aren’t in relationships tend to long for a connection in such a way. Despite if you’re in love or eating boxes of chocolate by yourself, the question of whether young adults are emotionally equipped to deal with these new, exciting emotions comes to mind.

According to statistics from Mckinley Irvin, 41% of first marriages end in divorce and percentages become higher after any marriages after that. If young adults can learn emotional maturity and integrity early on, such as in high school, it would not only benefit these shocking statistics, but help these young adults understand desires and preferences from previous relationships. Helping in emotional integrity can be multi-purposeful not only to the lovelorn, but to the stressed and depressed.

Perhaps a solution can be to offer an extracurricular class in dealing with such emotion. Perhaps, finding a solution is not as simple as giving a lecture. What should be common knowledge to all is that affection for another should not be a distraction to dealing with your own faults. Your priorities emotionally need to be your focus before adding another person to the mix.
