One expert explains how past flames can set fire to present romances.
We all have a bit of a fascination with stories of long lost love. They're epically romantic, after all, and usually filled with heartache, humor and, most importantly, a happy ending.

Even on vacation, couples don't take a break from fighting.
Fighting seems to be having a moment. A recent study found that arguing might actually be the most effective way to resolve conflict in relationship. And while researchers and psychologists may support that finding, nobody wants to fight while on vacation.
But a recent survey found that couples do not take a break from arguing just because they're on holiday. A whopping 79 percent of couples say they have at least two big fights while on vacation. Here are the top reasons for those tiffs.
