When we become adults, we think that love is for adults only associating it with sexual relations but I'm sure that all of us have loved or have had some admiration for the daughter of the neighborhood or a girl attending the same school: that's an idyllic love, I'm sure.
If we know that childhood is characterized by a strong learning capacities and that the learned experiences will have a strong impact on the future behavior of the child, thus the future man or woman, can someone accept easily to see the girl(for a man) or the boy(for a girl) that he/she dreamt in married with another one (when he begins his adulthood).
Isn't such a heart-breaking experience, that can prevent our mind from trying to build new relationships (since we can not replace, at least in our mind,the representation of the loved one while it's becoming a nightmare in the same time)?
And when our mind survive this chaos, will he seek to find someone resembling the one loved during childhood without that we even notice?
How is it that people overcome the initial pain of failed love to feel brave enough to risk such pain again when starting relationships?
Do people tend to look for someone who reminds them of their first love?
Is there any studies or statistics for married couples that were "in love" since childhood?
