I was reading an article this morning about first loves.. The author of this article seems to believe that first loves are the new trend in reasons for divorce in the 21st century..
While I didn’t agree with everything the author had to say, she did make some valid points.. With the ever popular social networks today it seems that people are more connected than ever before and it’s now sort of easy to look up and find anyone you pretty much want too..
People, both men and women seem to be contacting their first loves at an alarming rate and while some of these re-connections don’t go beyond the friendly, catch up conversation, a larger majority are going beyond that all the way to divorce and remarriage..
What I did agree with in this article was that, first loves remind us of home and being young. They also stir up and bring to the surface feelings some thought were long dead and buried only to have them rekindle and burn as hot as white heat…
What is your take on this new trend? Have you connected with your first love again? Has it led to more than friendly conversation? Please leave comments as I am interested in what people think and you can even do it anonymously. Interesting don’t you think?
