Yes, one last bit of MarNel before moving back to Rain. The next update WILL feature Rain again at last. Sorry again for the wait, but thank you for your patience. So we're gonna stop hassling me, right? ^_^

Still, before that let's talk about what's going on above. Poor Chanel is an incredibly insecure person, but are her fears justified? Do you think Maria's words put her mind at ease? Can Maria even promise something like this given all the instability in her home life right now? After all of the above, how healthy would you say this relationship is right now?

Good lord, my heart. I can't take it. This relationship is just too damn adorable!

And, pretty healthy too, in my opinion. Focusing on your own flaws is better than focusing on those of your partner, and a medium amount of self-reflection is generally good in any situation. Plus, they're communicating, rather than keeping this stuff bottled up.

In short, this relationship seems good to last. And I swear, if anything happens to either of these two, I will... keep reading, because it'll make interesting drama. But I won't be happy about it!

Wait, this is a senior/freshman relationship? Ages 17 and 14, or maybe 18/15 by now? Yeah, I think Chanel's the more realistic one on those grounds alone. And while I don't mind, I'm surprised we haven't had more commenters objecting to the age gap...

@drs

Well, it is Maria's birthday, so actually they'd be 18 and 14 now (I don't know if I've ever shared this here, but Chanel's birthday isn't until July [birthdates will be included on a future cast page update]).

I'm actually kinda surprised I don't see more objection than I do (I'm glad I don't, but I am surprised), but I remember stuff like this happening in high school. Plus, it's the same age gap between my wife and I, so it doesn't bother me. ^_^

Well it is normal for high schoolers to date. I know I had a crush on a freshman my senior year.

I think that the most likely threat is that they will simply grow apart. Four years is a lot bigger of a difference at that age.

I was one of those kids in that wider age gap relationship in High School...

... except I was also like Chanel, until relatively recently. It's a long process to be free of that tendency to self-deprecate much more than is socially appropriate or psychologically healthy.

I would worry about changing college plans based on a relationship with a high school freshman. (Or sophomore, by then.) Hopefully CU really is a good school for Maria's interests.

Of course, many people in Maria's life situation would see college as an excuse to get faaaaaaaaar away from home. Especially if parents are still paying for college; easier to hide one's unapproved social life a good plane ride away.

Nelly and Maria are so cute together <3 I don't think the age gap is a problem, to be honest.

WOW... I had the same conversation with my wife many years ago, Minus the School talk. she kept telling me I could do better. I told her I did do better, I was alone and now I'm with the most beautiful women I have ever known, both inside and out.

Ya know, sometimes, you just need some heartwarming adorableness ^^

This page is simply beautiful.

There are no other words for it.

At their age the age gap does worry me a bit. And making school plans based on a high school relationship isn't the best of ideas.

Montoya? As in...
"My name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die."?

@Vanessa

As in I needed a Spanish surname. But I don't deny that Inigo Montoya probably inspired it. XD

Aww. Maria is the best girlfriend ever :)

Has Chanel ever told Maria she loves her? She damned well should say it now.

Absolutely adorable page. I have a bit of a problem with people making plans off their high school relationships though. Not to say that people don't make it work, but Chanel especially is so young.
