This kind of motive pushes many into a relationship not just because they love the person but because they think is the step to take. and with this, the relationship won’t last.
3 Emotional immaturity: Age has a little thing to do with a relationship but emotional maturity plays a big role. In high school, They are still living with their parents, guidance, etc, Still running to their rooms when they want to show their parents that they are angry and hurt.
This is them not being able to control their emotion toward their guidance, the same goes for a relationship.

Can a 15-year-old be in love?
To answer this question, I will start by saying that there is a possibility of a 15-year-old child, to like the opposite** *but it is hard to love. Yeah, love is not something that is easily understood even by an adult, at 15 years, the child is still very young to know what he wants or what love is. So, at times, some of them who are already exposed can mistakenly take lust as love.
Many of these high school relationships are just for fun and nothing more that is why it is advisable as a parent to ensure that you know the friends that your children keep in other to stop them from making mistakes in life that will affect their future.
Also as a high school student, it is also important that you know what is right and what is wrong. don’t be carried away by the movies you watch or by what you hear. If you are planning on going into a relationship while in High school, be sure that you are careful of yourself and don’t allow the feelings and emotions to control your senses anytime soon, and don’t try to be like your friend.
Always have in mind that after high school, there is another life out there waiting for you. Enjoy your high school life but know the limit in which you enjoy it.
