Forever is over
The article is all about the notion of forever in our society today. With half of all married couples getting divorced, where can one find permanence?
Is there still forever?
Forever is over. A contradiction in terms if I've ever heard one but true nonetheless. How many people out there have vowed that they will be together forever? That they will stick with each other forever? That their's is a love that will stand the test of time and last forever? Enter any other cliché ending in forever. Now how many of those couples no longer even know each other?
Forever is a term that is used too loosely in our world today. People make big promises that they don't keep and throw ''forevers'' around like they're confetti. Like it's just another word. But it's not. Forever is a commitment, one of the utmost certainty. When you promise someone forever, you better be completely sure that you will stick by that persons side until the dawn of time. You would follow them into anything, bad or good, your own existence meaning nothing in the absence of theirs. Now how many people can once again look at their significant other and promise them forever?
When someone severs all ties and walks away, where do all the forevers go? Do they simply disintegrate with the relationship? Or do they hang in the air as ghosts of memories past; set on haunting the former lovers about what once was and what coud have been...?
