"Boy Girl Relationships Between Students From Top Schools And Those From Neighbourhood Schools Are Doomed To Fail." Do You Agree With This View?

852 words - 3 pages

Boy-girl relationships are all about young love, having fun with the opposite sex and learning how to deal with relationships. It is usually harmless and it is natural. These relationships are usually based on looks, interests and social reputation. But stereo-typing becomes part of it, outsiders tend to condemn them based on external appearances. An example of this would be the argument that "boy-girl relationships between students from top schools and those from neighbourhood schools are doomed to fail." Before I make my stand on this, I will view it from both sides.If I were to agree with the view, I'll say that one factor that contributes to the 'doom' factor would be the social circle.

From here, we can see that the students from top and neighbourhood schools lead two totally different lifestyles. So when one from either side were to get into a relationship, it would be quite difficult to work out since both are entering into another lifestyle that is so different from his/ her own.If I were to disagree with the view, I would have to say that there are quite a number of reasons why I do not agree. Firstly, relationships are based on trust, honesty, love and understanding. In all relationships, these four components must be present in order for the relationship to work out. You have to trust your partner that they would not do things that will hurt you physically or emotionally. You have to be honest with your partner as honesty is a big part in relationships. You cannot go telling lies to your partner. It is just not right. Love is another major factor. Love is the spark or chemistry between two persons. It is what makes the couple...
