Nancy Kalish Ph.D is an Emeritus Professor of Psychology at the California State University Sacramento She is the author of Lost & Found Lovers. I started my research in 1994 At that time the idea of reuniting with a high school sweetheart in midlife or late life seemed like a fantasy to most people something that was extremely rare and unobtainable Indeed I thought I was researching a rare phenomenon and would have trouble finding enough participants for a meaningful study Now the average person is aware that many couples do reunite (or try) years after their adolescent is my hope that when love for an old flame reignites or when even interest and curiosity return during an engagement these about an upcoming will be taken seriously and not buried When you bury feelings in sand the tides are likely to shift someday and expose the painful underlying reality. And what does it mean to have anyway? Is it a small nagging feeling that a mistake is being made or an internal scream that yells "Stop!" How serious is "serious enough" to listen to the weigh them as more important than the embarrassment and financial losses and cancel the wedding?It's one thing to have last minute about the person you are going to marry; it's something else altogether to have because you really love someone else: A Janu article in The New York Times written by Benedict Carey discusses a series of studies on a not uncommon phenomenon: right before getting married Carey discusses research that found men and women who think they might be making a mistake are more likely to divorce later than those without Although that may sound like common sense with a divorce rate of 40% for first s surely most of these couples started life together happily and did not anticipate an ending; they all believed they would be part of the successful 60% Without some degree of faith and a leap who would want to get married (or at least who would marry without a prenup)? My research on lost loves has given me a perspective on how extreme these can be and yet be ignored My research participants (men and women alike) have described being in hotel rooms the night before the wedding with former sweethearts -- making love crying and saying "goodbye forever" -- then walking down the aisle the next day to marry a person who has no idea their beloved is really in love with someone from the past!The first time I heard this from a man it seemed shocking that he had such deep love for a former sweetheart having sex and tremendous feelings of loss right before his wedding but went through with the to someone else the next day thinking he could (should?) leave his old flame behind But then more stories arrived in my research box written by people who did the. Fortunately that extreme behavior wasn't common but it was common for people who years later reunited with their lost loves to confess that when they walked down the aisle they not only felt they were making a mistake but deeply wished they were marrying their lost loves instead And yet they married What is not surprising is that when the lost love contacted them years later they put their s aside and renewed this loves for their old flames. "if you're experiencing panic attacks crying a lot dreading the wedding feeling nauseous feeling trapped or like it's 'too late' to call off the wedding or if you don't want to see your partner at all these are signs you should postpone or cancel the wedding," Greer says "You should get counseling or some other type of support to figure out why you're feeling so distressed However if it's simply about that can be addressed trust that these won't be strong enough to stop you from going ahead with the wedding day."
