Most people look back fondly on their high school sweethearts; I look across the table at mine at dinner every night. My husband and I met when I was a junior in high school, and we've been together for the last 17 years.

When I tell people that now, as an adult, the response is pretty positive. But earlier on in our relationship, we endured a lot of judginess. We hadn't played the field enough; we were limiting our options; we were holding each other back. I know the people around us had visions of us having a baby too soon, getting stuck in our hometown, missing out on life experiences, and eventually splitting up. And that's fair; that's the way it goes for a lot of people.

But our relationship wasn't typical. We weren't codependent, and we didn't miss out on our college experiences. We did the long-distance thing the entire time we were in college, and although we remained faithful to each other, we were also able to have our own experiences, our own friends, and our own lives. He went out to bars in the city with friends from work; I went out dancing with my roommates and spent weekends at the beach. But we always knew we would end up together, and once I was done with school, I moved to San Francisco to be with him. Within a year we were engaged, and within three, we were married. Sounds fast, but at that point we had been dating for NINE years.

Now, 17 years into our relationship and seven years into our marriage, I can pretty safely say that marrying the first person I ever seriously dated was the best decision I've ever made. Here's why.

Not just "anymore," but . . . ever. Sure, I had a couple other boyfriends when I was, um, 15. But my adult life has been free of awkward first dates, one-night stands, and heartrending breakups, and I'm grateful for that. No Tinder, no Match.com, no blind dates.

I don't have to be embarrassed for him to stumble across my junior prom photos with my '90s hair because . . . he was my date, rockin' the '90s right along with me. We were there for each other's awkward teenage phases, and we lived to tell the tale.

For these three women it’s about something way more important: “I’m not looking to be an easy sexual conquest” Steffanie Rivers, currently celibate, 49 Her story: “I’ve had no sexual contact since 2014 and I’m fine with it. I was in a relationship then but at the time found that most men, regardless of their age, seem immature and focused on sexual conquests above almost anything else. It’s not that my libido is low, it’s that I am not a slave to my sexual urges like so many people are.” What she’s focusing on: “It’s more important for me to focus on spiritual growth and building a relationship with a man who also exercises self-control. I believe that’s the best way to determine if we are compatible in other ways that -- after the sex is no longer brand new -- will sustain our relationship for years to come.” What she’s hoping for in a relationship: “In March, I met Nelson, the love of my life. He lives in South Carolina, and I live in Texas. We travel back and forth to see each other, and we’ve made a decision to abstain from sex until we get married, which we’re planning to do next year.

I was engaged to my high school sweetheart . We were together for 3 years, but broke up when we turned 18 (we had the same bday). Now he is married to one of our other hs friends. I ' m sooo glad I did not marry him!

We don't have to bounce around from one person's hometown to the other; when we talk about going "home" for Christmas, we're both talking about the same place. Holidays are a nonissue.

We were together through high school graduations, college acceptance letters, voting for president for the first time, and buying our first legal drinks. We've gotten to experience some of life's most important milestones together.

High school, and the people you spend it with, shapes your taste in crucial things like music, movies, and junk food. Sure, our tastes have evolved and changed, but we're still happy to settle in with a John Cusack movie and an In-N-Out burger (animal style, natch) any day. We're into a lot of the same stuff.

Watching my husband put himself through school to do what he loves was even more meaningful knowing all the burgers he had to flip and dishes he had to wash to get there. We learned each other's childhood dreams and then got to watch them come true.

We've known each other's families since we were teenagers, so there is no "his" and "mine." My grandparents call him their favorite grandson; I love his brother like my own. We share a family.

For the first near decade of our relationship, we had no car payments, no demanding careers, no real obligations. That resulted in a lot of fun and a solid foundation for our relationship before adult worries set in. We got a lot of time together before we had to start being adults.

At 16, you haven't had time to develop relationship hang-ups or put up walls; what you see is what you get. We learned who each other really was before we learned to put our guards up.

Just try being someone you're not around the person who's known you since before you were a legal adult. We keep each other honest.

Your late teens and early 20s are rough, man. You leave home and have to decide what to do with the rest of your life; you form and break friendships like nobody's business; you have to learn to navigate the real world. Having a steady partner through all that change is priceless. We had a solid support system through the hardest moments of our early adulthood.
