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

There are just some things in life that are not necessary knowledge.

Maybe we always hold out that tiny bit of hope we will one day be on Jeopardy... because you never know.

It's the creepy facts about life that leave me wondering and reeling.

RedditorsPanzer_ace_8wanted to compare notes on the things we're aware of that maybe we wish we could forget. They asked:

Hitchhikers Describe The Most Memorable Ride A Stranger Has Ever Given Them

Hitchhiking. It has to be one of the most dangerous things a person can do.

There are too many movies where a hitchhiker falls victim to some psycho, and they're shocked it's happening.

Like... Hello?!?! You got into some stranger's car. How could you not get killed?

Also, all throughout childhood years we tell kids to NEVER get into a stranger's car.

But once we're 18 that rule seems to no longer apply.

I feel like it should be MORE prescient in adulthood.

But I'm sure all the survivors have quite the tale to share.

RedditorWestTexasOilmanwanted all of the road travelers to share some memories about past rides. They asked:

"Current or Former Hitchhikers of Reddit; What person that stopped or gave you a ride was the most memorable? Why?"

Americans Break Down The Things They Appreciate Most About The U.S.

Let's put this up front: the United States of America is not the greatest country in the world.

It's just a fact. We're not tops in the world in education, our maternity leave for new mothers pales in comparison to most European countries, which is to say nothing of our healthcare as a whole, and our average income per household?

8th. Last we checked, that's not 1st.

It's not all doom and gloom though. There are still a lot of things to love about the good ol' U. S. of A. And if you love something, you fight for it, to make it better, and truly try to achieve the ranking of "best."
