not everyone prioritises school over personal happiness...maybe they were quite happy working a basic job for an extra 12 months if theyre going to be in a relationship. why does the focus have to be on school rather than personal happiness? i guess the current trend is work>relationships. only a fortunate few dont fall for that bullshit.
an education can also wait. you can go to school anytime you want, but i dare you to say to someone "you know what? id really like to keep this thing we have going, so if you could just wait say...3 years for me to finish this degree ill consider taking things to the next level with you". tell me how that works out in comparison to "id like to defer my studies" then finding a university where youve just moved to, or hell, just getting a job. a career is just a means to an end, sure we all wanna be happy with our jobs but who gives a shit if thats all youve got? taking a risk every now and then for yourself is a good thing. learn to live.
actually its because they prioritised their work over their fiance and since then havent been able to find someone else they care as much for. sure he has relationships, but since he hasnt gotten over this girl they usually end badly. so i suppose you could say hes happy on and off, but his ex wants nothing to do with him and is happily remarried. by the way, not everyone has to deal with situations like this, in which they have to take risks to get what they want. just because people successfully leave university and get married doesnt mean that same black and white life view applies to everyone.
