The way I see it, after having been subjected to the situation and seeing others undergo it as well, tangibles constitute a large part of any relationship, regardless of its nature, strength or purity. The tangibles we have throughout the relationship start forming some bond with our partner during his presence in our lives. If we really want to move on, it only seems objective for us to replace all the tangibles that now remind us of that one-upon-a-time partner!
Let’s take a car for example, you spend hours in a car together with your partner, you laugh, argue, touch; create memories… How hard would it be to go in your car, every single day, knowing that the person who you’ve shared all those times with, in this particular car, is now gone? Naturally, this applies to furniture, such as a bed or a couch and the list goes on!
To some, even a mobile phone could be the tangible to replace after replacing the partner!
I guess it all depends on the budget and the will to move on!
Leaving the country seems like the best solution to replace most tangibles at once, wouldn’t you agree?
