You know you’re married-at-uni when…

Sometimes, relationships at Uni get excessively intimate. Much too intimate…


Valentines day is finally over but love is still in the air.

Then again, let’s face it, love is always in the air at university. A hot bed for romance where there are roughly 25,000 intelligent, like-minded individuals around your own age…relationships both good and bad are inevitable.

But once you’ve had a satisfyingly rebellious (but not ridiculous) number of one night stands and found some that avoids all of these turn offs, it’s possible that you may have found your university spouse.

Married-at-uni: (adjective)

A couple who are dating at university and, although they have exchanged zero vows, act like an old married couple and LOVE IT.

Synonyms: inseparable, smug couple, Lenton lovers.

Does this describe your relationship? Better check against these to make sure.
