Do our desires to plan our own future develop due to surrounding failure, or growing personality?

I am 19 years old, my female companion 18. I constantly hope to know if she will be the one for me, she might but she might not I don't want to know. But I do want to know if she's interested in pursuing such a future with me. However, this can be a burden. My desire to know can get in the way of our relationship and get worse. Its caused me to question my family, my friends, my coworkers, and I've come to the conclusion everyone wants to know their future to achieve what they way.

When they can not know, they get upset, frustrated, or even angry. But why do we get these emotions just because we can't handle not knowing. Do we get upset because we see the failures around us and hope we do not fall in to such devastating pits. We some of us raised to believe we can control everything in our life if we put the right cards on the table? Do our school systems give us false hopes for thing we do not need to believe?
