Not if they have been hurt by someone for those same reasons. The past will never be forgotten,just maybe forgiven. Maybe! @SpeshialJay
The past is a tool u should use to learn, build & grow from... everyone has a past its what makes us who we r today... EVERYONE... so if u can't accept someone else's past, embrace for the impact n prepare 2 b lonely or miserable in the end... to me every person, every new person, evey new experience is new and u should treat it as such ur not perfect either... <3 U ACE!!!
I think in order for the relationship to show maturity and growth, both partners have to be willing to accept the past for what it is..THE PAST... as in no longer the situation. If they're not willing to focus on the now and their future, and just keep dwelling on the past, then the relationship might as well be a wrap.
they got to resolve their issues before getting into or going further in the relationship
