That's because you're a grumpy old coot from back when 19 and unmarried was a spinster. Oh, wait. That's a mirror.
But, yeah. Found this
online. So, maybe it's not so big a stretch.
However, I'd argue for 38 (their 20-year high school reunion). (Or almost 10, considering they are leap year babies.)
If I were to do it, I'd probably have them lose their virginity prom night. But, then I'd also probably make them *cough* less than prime specimens of their respective genders. Toss in a sprinkle of yearning for the other as they realize over time just how much they actually felt for each other. BUT, their self-esteem issues keep them from getting in touch before that particular day.
Maybe even toss in a couple of failed relationships along the way that they eventually realize failed because they really wanted to wait for her/him.
And, of course, being me, I'd have to make them the best looking couple and most successful at their reunion, everyone else having peaked in high school or college.
Yeah... probably better I leave this one alone and let someone else who won't turn it into a faux Danielle Steele effort have a crack.
