Holdek said:A strangely popular phenomenon among baby boomers though is, after their first divorce, some of them reconnect to and marry their high school sweetheart. Not sure what exactly that's all about but I've seen it happen several times.
That's exactly what my mom did when my parents divorced, except she didn't remarry the guy, just dated for almost 15 years until his death last year.
Some people may just prefer to leave their time in high school behind. I passed on my 10-year reunion because I barely talk to anyone I graduated with, among other reasons (they were charging $40/person, it was being held on a weeknight a couple days after Christmas and I had to work that night.) Every so often there's an exchange on Facebook with someone I went to high school with, but other than that, I don't talk to anyone. I've moved on. I don't need those people in my life and I'm not a good enough actress to pretend that I remember any "good times" I had with these people 10 years ago.
