Somebody's gonna get hurt

So here I am on Facebook, checking out everyones entries, and I come across Aprils "You have to take the good with the bad, smile with the sad, always forgive, never forget... I love you Jesse forever".
Yesterday she wrote "everything gonna be ok Jesse... love you forever"... and all that stuff. She's been writing this for the past two days back and forth.
She's opened her heart completely to this guy and with them being so young (in their 20's) you know that they're gonna get hurt.

These days it just seems that young people don't have the "tools" they need relationships. Those tools are communication, teamwork, commitment, and "love for the other".
Of course they talk to each other, but they need to talk about issues, problems happening now. Usually all you hear is "it's gonna be alright, we'll work it out".. well... thats fine.. but how?

Teamwork/Commitment - It seems young people have an issue here - when things start getting to hot in the kitchen, usually one of them will split (and it's usually the guy!) - instead of tackling the fire together one of them will fess up saying "I'm sorry... I can't deal with this anymore" or "it's just not working out"

"Love for the other" - in the Bible, 1 Corinthians 13:5, it reads "love.... does not look for it's own interests" - This means to be more concerned about others than yourself. Thats what makes a relationship strong... but today young adults want to be satisfied and happy for themselves not so much for their boyfriend/girlfriend

I worry about April :-(
