Q&A: Songs of Relationships Past

Q: Now that I’m married is it still OK to listen to music that takes me back in time to past relationships?

Dr. Gary Chapman: We often connect past relationships with certain songs. I have heard people say, “That was our song.” In my opinion, you ought to avoid songs that bring back memories of prior relationships. There are plenty of songs out there; why not build new memories with your spouse? Having visual images from relationships past is never easy, and it is especially problematic when you are married. Let the past be the past. Select new songs and create new memories with your spouse.
