Have you ever looked around and taken stock of your life? Ever wondered how things would be change if you'd made a different choice along the way? One of the biggest and most important choices a person can make is who they spend their lives with. One Reddit user asked:

What would your life be like if you married your first crush?

The question got us thinking ... if we had actually married Jem would we have gotten to be one of the Holograms? Would we have to put up with Rio's b.s. for forever, or maybe saved poor Jem from him? Not everyone's first crush ended up quite as dramatic, but we picked 20 of our favorite responses to share with you. There are cheaters, coming out stories, snapchat filters and Criss Angel ahead.

So brace yourselves, be ready to check Facebook to see how your first crush is doing, grab some ice cream in case that ends up being a bad idea, and click next.

Cheating

[rebelmouse-image 18353705 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

She'd have cheated on me numerous times, sadly i actually dated her for three weeks and it ended via cheating and then the word around school was cheating on other men as well, she still does it from what i'm hearing from my social group, she was engaged and he broke it off because she was cheating

Small Town Royalty

[rebelmouse-image 18353706 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I probably wouldn't have ever left the bumf* town we grew up in. She was third generation "small-town royalty" and had no aspirations to ever leave. So, I would be going to high school football games and probably substituting at the middle school or working at the power plant.

Emma

[rebelmouse-image 18353708 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Emma Watson and I would be quite happy.

I grew up with the Harry Potter movies.

Studying Apart

[rebelmouse-image 18349649 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I would be in Ireland working on my third thesis on Irish mythology while he lived state side with our dogs while studying opera.

I only know this because my friend is currently dating my first crush. Marriage isn't really on the table because they don't believe in it as an institution. Our friend group is 99% sure that she's his beard, but they're both happy so who are we to judge.

Didn't Know Her At All

[rebelmouse-image 18353709 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Probably pretty terrible. I was not at all mature enough to enter a long-term relationship when I was ten years old. I really didn't know the girl at all except for her name and where she lived. I thought she was pretty, but it hadn't occurred to me yet that common interests and compatible personalities might be important.

I've been very happily married for ten years now, but I didn't even meet my spouse until I was 34 years old.

New Last Name

[rebelmouse-image 18353710 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

... my last name would be Semen.

:(

Traveling And Having Fun

[rebelmouse-image 18353711 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

It would be quite nice. I fell in love with him when I was 3, we were childhood friends. His dad went on to become a millionaire. He's married now and him and his wife spend their time traveling the world and having fun. He was also a pretty down-to-earth and a really nice guy, but he never liked me in a romantic way. I spent like 15 years having a crush on him.

Cardio Funsies in Kenya

[rebelmouse-image 18353712 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I assume we'd be somewhere in Kenya, since that's where we met in kindergarten. He also probably wouldn't run away from me anymore when I tried to kiss him, unless we we kept up the "kissing tag" game for cardio funsies.

Heather

[rebelmouse-image 18353713 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Heather Locklear and I would still be happily married. We probably wouldn't have kids tho, since she was in her forties by the time I turned eighteen.

"He Was Sweet When We Were Five"

[rebelmouse-image 18353714 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My life would be extremely bad, because now he's a gangbanger, can't keep a job, does/deals several types of drugs, and he cheats on almost every girl he's been with. He was sweet when we were 5, it's a shame that this has happened to him.

Justin

[rebelmouse-image 18353715 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Pretty awesome, considering I'd be married to Justin Timberlake.

Fraggle Life

[rebelmouse-image 18353716 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'd be married to Wembley Fraggle. Living in a cave. Ironing his Hawaiian shirts. Sleeping in a hole in a rock. My bff would be Mokey. Not a bad life really.

MLM

[rebelmouse-image 18353717 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'd be dealing with #bossbabe MLM shit all f_*_ing day.

He's Gay

[rebelmouse-image 18353718 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

He's gay, so that probably wouldn't have worked well in the end.

Man Hater

[rebelmouse-image 18353719 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'd be divorced and dealing with a lot of animosity.

She came out as a lesbian about 10 years ago and (as bad as this may sound) is pretty much full blown anti-male now.

Would Recommend

[rebelmouse-image 18353720 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I did. It's neat.

Lynda

[rebelmouse-image 18353722 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'd be pretty happy, I guess. Lynda Carter is still ridiculously beautiful.

Criss

[rebelmouse-image 18353723 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'm actually not sure what Criss Angel is up to these days...

Dog Face Snapchat

[rebelmouse-image 18353724 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

She turned out one of those dog face Snapchat girls posting selfies in the bathroom and always in drama

Red Hair And Freckles

[rebelmouse-image 18353725 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My first crush was a very beautiful girl names Emma at my Oakville school with pale skin fire red hair and freckles. If we had gotten married I'd imagine we'd have 2 beautiful interracial babies, realize we made a huge mistake getting married in grade 6, get divorced and be bitter and antagonize each other through our children for the next few decades

CW: Suicide

There is so much to learn in life.

And once you acquire certain things mentally, you regret it.

How much 411 have you come across over time that made you think... "How can I unlearn that?"

Yeah, not possible.

Knowledge is power and sometimes it's a nightmare.

Don't we have enough to keep us up at night?

Damn curiosity.

Well let's do some learning.

Redditor RedBoyFromNewy wanted to shed some light on creepy issues we need to be discussing. They asked:

"What’s a disturbing fact that not a lot of people know of?"

The truth matters.

Something one would think was a given in modern society.

Yet all over the world, there are people so unbelievably stubborn, that they simply refuse to believe the facts.

Sometimes even when presented with evidence.

This could be for something menial, such as refusing to believe that a cotton candy was actually invented by a dentist.

But sometimes, refusing to believe the truth could have serious consequences, up to and including climate change, the effectiveness of masks, and the disproportionate amount of gun violence in the US.

Redditor Lady_Of_The_Water was curious about the many things, both frivolous and serious, people refused to believe were true, leading them to ask:

"Whats something someone thought you were wrong about and ridiculed you for it, but it turns out you were right?"
