Word has it that Selena is pissed and that she's had it with her 17-year-old main squeeze, Justin Bieber. 19-year-old Selena Gomez is reported to have caught Justin texting his former make-out partner-Jasmine Villegas. On the one hand this is exciting news for millions of Beliebers because Justin may soon be back on the market. And millions of teen fans would like to take him right off the market texting and all. On the other hand, Justin has disappointed many teenage girls who thought that he was better than perfect. Maybe Selena is just a really jealous type. Lots of fans never really liked her in the first place.
Let's face it, though,most high school relationships DO NOT result in happily-ever-after marriages. People change significantly over time. The boy that you thought was a dream in high school might be a real creep in retrospect. The girl that you thought was the cat's meow in high school might be a "dog" now. Those are NOT my words. They are the words of couples and people that I work with and have been speaking to over many years.
So let's address two questions.
Do you think you'd be happy now if you were married to your high school sweetheart?
Are you on Team Bieber or Team Selena?
