Do relationships with a schizophrenic person at a younger age (20's) actually last?
Most relationships fail period!
If they did not we'd all be married to our high school sweethearts! If you throw in (youth) and (mental illness) you're not exactly increasing the odds of having a lifelong relationship. The majority of people seek out mates with the (least) amount of "baggage". All love and relationships are a calculated gamble.
You have to really know (yourself) before you select a mate. Only you know what you want in a mate. Keep in mind people want to be loved and appreciated for who they are. Therefore you don't want to be with someone hoping they'll change.
There are only two ways to experience joy and peace of mind in relationships. We either get what we want or we learn to be happy with what we have.
Best of luck!
Mental illnesses as physical illnesses are aspects to take into account when trying to decide to have a relationship. If is you or a hypotherical "person" who is schizophrenic, the most important thing is to really know that the illness is under control and that the person suffering from it really takes care of him-herself. The partner should have knowledge of the illness, the ups and downs and triggers. It is my personal opinion that me being 20 years old and have to decide, I would wait of look elsewhere.

i don't like the term crazy, but when someone is losing grips with reality as in schizophrenia, is the patient aware of the deterioration of their sanity and they are simply helpless to stop it (further compounding the problem) or is the person suffering schizophrenia oblivious to the incongruency...

Does a big age difference doom a relationship when the woman is older?Some people refers to younger men in such relationships as "toyboy lovers". Is it degrading or is it just exact? Is the age difference an obstacle in a relationship when the wife's age gap from her husband is great?

Is it fair to expect change from someone in marriage?We all know we aren't suppose to change people, but is it wrong to expect them to evolve into the relationship as much as you do? Everyone changes a little when they marry(or live together) simply because you are combining 2 personalities in one...
