I was just thinking back to the start of school, and I am not the most knowledgeable about relationships of people at our school , but I observed the following:
Of all the people who I knew were married or had SO that talked about them or introduced them to me.... NONE of them have broken up. So to me, if the relationship was serious enough to introduce the SO, they survived.
That doesn't mean there weren't a ton of more casual relationships that broke up that I didn't know about.
Anyway, at least to me, for my class, at Penn, people in committed relationships have made it through the first 2 years. That does surprise me a little given the usual comments about vet school and relationships.
I know two serious, introduce-the-SO relationships that broke up during first year, not including mine which was not vet school related...
