A sweetheart story

Everyone remembers their first teenage romance. It's big, it's real, it's life-altering. The lyrics in every song seem to be written especially for you. The sky is bluer and everything has new meaning.

Then mom and dad intervene, conspiring to break you up, saying things like, "You're too young," and, "you need to experience life."

So, reluctantly, you do, but you never forget that special person. You move on with your life but you compare everyone to your first love. No one else seems to measure up.

Then fate steps in - 15 years later - and brings you back together. It's like nothing ever changed, except this time, mom and dad are happy for you.
