Passing out from college, finding the right job, and then looking for your soulmate- sounds like a well-organised, pragmatic and mature plan, right? But in the pursuit of this, you might have missed out on a blossoming childhood romance that could have turned into so much more.
Not many people get to marry their childhood sweethearts. Be it the expectation to find a better deal around the next corner, or the fear of monotony that might build up in later years, you bid adieu to your childhood sweetheart at some stage of your life. Or, you simply never look for the person, thinking you would find your perfect soulmate in an arranged marriage setup. But, what if you were destined to fall in love and be together in your perfect ‘happily ever after’ with the boy/girl you sat next to in class once?
Read on to find out why marrying your childhood sweetheart might be the best thing that can happen to you.
Since you grew up together, you pretty much know almost all that is there to know about the other one. No success story or failure in life is hidden from your partner. They were there for you in your good times and bad. They have seen how you grew up to be the person you are today.

You two have jokes only you would get. You can make each other laugh with just a few expressions and no one else in the room would even get it.
Every time you have a random friend request on Facebook, you do not have to end up explaining to your spouse the relation or acquaintance. You know almost everyone your spouse has ever met or known.
The parents already know who their son/daughter is going to end up marrying. So, there are no awkward moments serving tea and behaving like an adarsh bahu or jamai in front of the would-be in-laws before you get hooked. Childhood sweethearts have lesser chances of family disagreements because nobody would really want to become the 'kebab me haddi' when it was meant to be for so long.
You know who their best friend is; you know what their favourite food is. You even know how they like their favourite dishes prepared. You know all about their obsession with a particular TV show or a movie character. And, the list just goes on.

You find solace in your soulmate and you do not keep comparing them to your ex because you probably had none. That also means no drama, no baggage and no resentment– and your future together is like a clean slate.
Because you are most probably already friends with most of them. You will not have to pretend to like any of them. Their friends are your friends, and when you all get together, it is a big party for everyone!
Experiencing the first moment of intimacy and the first fight with the same person is a rich ingredient for a happy marriage. Besides, you are building a grand storybook for your grandchildren with stories of your first hand-in-hand walk, first kiss, first fight, first everything. You can proudly sound clichéd with phrases like ‘one and only’, ‘my first love’, and so on.
When you grow up together, you share many dreams together that you might not be able to envision doing with another person again. You also clearly understand what your significant other has the passion for, and you are prepared to be a part of it.
You two have known each other long enough to become the best of friends. You certainly need no other BFF to go and pour your heart out. You find comfort only in your other half’s shoulder.
The whole world knows that puberty is hard. Well, know this, if you two can survive awkward stages of hair growing out of you from odd places, smelling weird suddenly, your voice changing and so much more together, then you can survive anything.
