Is 19 too OLD for the prom?

Wesley Chapel, Florida - It's easy to see that Chris Kluender and Tiffany Gall are high school sweehearts.

The two finish each other's sentences and have an ease about them that is usually reserved for older couples. It's clear that this is for real.

"I didn't even have to ask her to the prom," Chris said with a smile. "We just knew we were going together."

The two have been together for more than two years.  They began their relationship at Wiregrass Ranch High School. She was a senior two years ago, and the couple went to her prom.

Now, it's his turn to take her. After all, it's a rite of passage.
