Hi my name is Reka Morvay, I'm a psychologist and I'm going to talk to you today about how long teenage relationships last. Generally in the early years when, so between twelve and fourteen when dating is more about exploration and having fun and fitting in, in your peer group, relationships don't tend to last longer then five months. After the age of sixteen when relationships become more about intimacy and companionship the relationships can last usually last up to two years. Of course how long a relationship should last the main question to consider is whether the relationship is still a good one. So more important then how long the relationship lasted is the quality of the relationship. Because you can have a good relationship that lasts a short time and then you parted ways. But prolonging a bad relationship just so you can say that we went out for a year or two years is simply not worth it. So the answer to the question how long should teenage relationships last, it is as long as it's good for both parties.
