The potency of ‘first love’ has sidelined millions of adolescents from reaching their destiny. A teenage Karen overdosed on this euphoric emotion. She benched her college ambitions to marry her high school sweetheart, two months after graduation. By the time her third child was born, the euphoria had dissipated. The marriage was over.
