Use the present perfect tense to describe the man’s and the woman’s experiences since they broke up.

    What’s wrong with the world mama?
    People living like ain’t got no mamas
    I think the whole worlds addicted to the drama
    Only attracted to the things that bring you trauma

    Father Father Father help us
    Send some guidance from above
    Cause people got me got me questioning

    The man and the woman have done a lot of things since they broke up with each other.
    The man have traveled around the wolrd.

    At first, he have gone to Thailand.
    During the time he have met many different girls but he haven’t been in love.

    Then the man have gone to Africa as a volunteer, he helped the local people carry the bags and teach the young children.
    It made he enjoy himself.

    At the same time the women have been working hard as a reporter so that she have raised her two kids.
    All of the children have done things well.

    In my mind, I support the man and the woman should get back together.
    Because they have been loving each other though they have seperated from each other many years.

    Especially the the man. He have learned more about the importance of family so he have adopted a little child. Of course,
    the most important thing is that they hand in hand at last.

    He traveled many country since they broke up.
    During traveling he saw many things and had many experience.
    he might feel that his familyis more important then his work.
    also shehas lived as same with their kids since they broke up with each other.she might feel to need her ex-boyfriendevery time.How will they to live? how they understand each other is more important.

    Do not even think about the wedding, if you accept the idea that you will love your soul-mate is less then God loves people.
    …It was hard break-up, because it had destroyed the family.
    Instead, they were freed from the obligation to each other, children.
    A woman has reached a leading position in famous TV channel.
    The man, possibly as a journalist, has written for the well-known geographical journal.
    After they had destroyed their family, they have an interesting and active life, full of new experiences. Career likes Loners.
    I did not understand, was a woman married a second time, but the man is married and he has a son. In the last frames the movie we have seen that they are attracted to each other and they have kept each other’s hands. But time has changed a lot.
    If this meeting is to connect them together, it will be destroyed the new man’s family.
    In my opinion, family is place where two selfish entities have dissolved in each other.
    Family is art. The Art of love.
